When the first generation of the Nissan Qashqai came on the market back in the year 2006 nobody could predict that the segment SUVs would grow to the level we know today. Proof of this is that firms that had never been present in this niche market, or that had little presence, now has a wide range of all roads.
examples of commercials we have in Porsche with the Cayenne, Lamborghini with the Urus, Bentley with the Bentayga or Rolls-Royce with the next Cullinan. However, there are brands, such as Mercedes-Benz having among their ranks a all path of great size and luxury, as the GLS, is thinking of launching to the market a version more ostentatious to compete against the models of the signatures listed above.
To do this, Mercedes-Benz would be working in a version Maybach for the great GLS. The reason to bring out this creation is due to the high sales success that is reaping the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class in the countries where the models of great luxury feature with a loyal following. Therefore, to exploit the franchise’s most exclusive of the group Daimler AG is a priority if they are to compete with rivals such as the Bentayga, and company.
The work, apparently, would be very advanced as it could be presented in the form of concept in the Saloon Kiss that will take place in the month of April, for, once formalized put it up for sale. Among its main features would be the traditional nods to the luxury of the signature, as well as a design that is both differentiated, in order to provide greater exclusivity.
According to statements made by a person in charge of Mercedes-Benz
“we have been surprised by the sales success of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, that is proving to be extremely popular in many key markets. The plan now is to extend the exclusivity that surrounds the name Maybach at the upper end of the SUV segment. We are confident that this new model will leave little to be desired in terms of luxury”
The british dare to speculate with the platform and engine that will give life to this model. In the first case suggest that it would be based on the new base MHA (Modular High Architecture) of the German firm. In the second case, it would be likely to come up with the block of gasoline in configuration V8 twin-turbo 4-litre displacement which delivers an output end of 469 HP.
With all this information has not yet been confirmed “officially” by Mercedes-Benz, so we must be attentive to the events that are to happen in the next few days, if it is true that premieres next month in China.
