But the Germans went further. If the sedan Mercedes-Maybach differs from the donor’s size and body structure, the crossover Mercedes-Maybach GLS got the same metal body as the original “Gee-El-ESA”.

She is able to control each wheel individually, to deal with the banks on solid surfaces and to simulate the rocking of the car on the roads to get out of the trap. But it’s all there and “Gee-El-ESA”. But what he lacks is the extra mode of movement, which immodestly called the Maybach. It promises unprecedented comfort for passengers.
