Mercedes-Benz S-Class XL spied, could receive the S600 Maybach nameplate

The extra-long wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class was caught on camera in Stuttgart, ahead of this year's launch.

It will reportedly be stretched by 200mm compared to the current long wheelbase S-Class which has a 5246mm length so the new model will be almost 5.5 meters long. It will retain the 2+2 seating layout and will come with the third side window positioned after the rear door.

Mercedes GLA 45 AMG & S600 Maybach to debut in Detroit - report

Mercedes GLA 45 AMG & S600 Maybach to debut in Detroit - report

The 2014 Mercedes C-Class will be one of the key attractions at the North American International Auto Show and a new report is indicating it will be joined by the GLA45 AMG and the S600 Maybach.

The GLA 45 AMG was recently previewed by a concept at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and is slated to have sporty styling, high-performance brakes and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 360 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque. The engine will be connected to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch transmission and an AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive system which should enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds.

S600 Maybach? I thought they were going to call it Pullman.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG is German for 'More Power'

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG is German for 'More Power'

Thanks to a decade of European crossovers with torrid performance, downsized engines with outsized performance and a mushrooming compact SUV segment, it's no longer the marvel it should be when we receive the specs on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. Well, almost not a marvel, because they've really put a point on this one: underhood is a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 355 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque that will run the all-wheel-drive baby AMG from 0-to-60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds.

The turbocharged, 2.0-liter engine's 355 horsepower and 332 lb-ft will run the baby AMG from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.
Shifting is done through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with Manual, Sport and Comfort modes and an integrated "power take-off unit" that sends twist through a two-piece propeller shaft to a clutch built into the rear differential. Nominally front-wheel drive, when situations require it the drivetrain can send 50 percent of the power to the rear axle. There's also a Race Start function, because of course you need that in your all-wheel-drive luxury crossover.
