As you search for a new ultra-luxe sedan that will fuel your Burbank drives, you’ll likely end up stuck between two premium models: the 2023 Rolls-Royce Ghost and the 2023 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. While both models offer unmatched performance and luxury amenities, only one can end up in your Los Angeles garage. Find out how these two sophisticated sedans stack up in Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena’s Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vs. Rolls-Royce Ghost comparison!



2023 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vs. Rolls-Royce Ghost: Performance

When drivers choose a high-end automotive brand like Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Maybach, they expect engine performance to match. Neither the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class nor the Ghost disappoint, offering powerful engines and unmatched capability for the Glendale roads. That said, the 2023 Rolls-Royce Ghost starts with a standard V12 engine that leaves the Mercedes-Maybach standard V8 engine in the dust. Compare the Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Maybach S-Class starting performance specs below for more details.

2023 Rolls-Royce Ghost Standard Engine:

  • Engine: 6.75L Twin-Turbocharged V12
  • Transmission: eight-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • Horsepower: 563 hp

2023 Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Maybach S-Class: Luxury & Customization

In addition to offering more power and capability for all your La Cañada drives, the 2023 Rolls-Royce Ghost also beats the competition in terms of luxury amenities and personalization options. Some of the features and customization options you can find on your 2023 Ghost include:

  • Extended Wheelbase: Unlike the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the Rolls-Royce Ghost offers two wheelbase options: standard and extended. The extended wheelbase provides up to seven more inches of room in the rear seat, giving passengers space to stretch out and relax on every drive.
  • Interior Design: When comparing the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vs. Rolls-Royce Ghost, it’s clear that the interiors of both models are brimming with hand-crafted materials available in an array of options. That said, the Rolls-Royce Ghost allows drivers to choose from a wide range of interior designs, from contrast seating inserts to accent colors; options not available on the Maybach S-Class. 
  • Architecture of Luxury: Climbing into the Rolls-Royce Ghost is an experience unlike any other thanks to the sound-dampening Architecture of Luxury. Each Ghost is built to remove the noise from the outside world, letting owners create personalized soundscapes on every drive. This level of sound and noise control can’t be found anywhere else on the market– including in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.
  • Headliner: Though the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class comes with a diamond-quilted leather headliner, nothing can compare to the Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner. Fully customizable constellations and colored animations invoke the night sky, creating a driving experience in the 2023 Ghost unlike any other.
