Immediately after the Rolls-Royce Cullinan entered the super luxury SUV market, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 was also quickly released. Style, sport and first-class comfort for the driver and passenger are the hallmarks of the Maybach brand, but they are also the hallmarks of any Roll-Royce. So, let’s find out what SUV representatives from these two luxury car brands are less than each other.
Compare Maybach GLS 600 and Rolls-Royce Cullinan on price
Neither of these SUVs will be cheap. On the international market, the Maybach GLS 600 has a starting price of 160,600 USD, equivalent to 3.6 billion VND. The first Maybach GLS 600 to return to Vietnam earlier this year was sold to an undisclosed price orchid giant Phu Tho. Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce Cullinan has a starting price of $ 340,000 (VND 7.8 billion). When he first returned to Vietnam in 2019, a private giant in Hanoi had to spend more than 45 billion VND to own this car.

When you have spent a huge amount of money on these cars, customers will certainly expect extremely strong performance. It is known that the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 2021 is equipped with a 4.0L V8 twin-turbocharged engine combined with EQ Boost and a 48-volt mild hybrid system. Rolls-Royce Cullinan is faithful to the 6.7L twin-turbocharged V12 engine for smooth and quick torque distribution.
According to the manufacturer’s announcement, the Maybach GLS 600 engine produces 550 hp and 729 Nm of torque while the Rolls-Royce Cullinan produces 562 hp and 850 Nm of torque. Maybach GLS 600 has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 96 km / h in 4.8 seconds and reaches a top speed limited to 200 km / h. Rolls-Royce Cullinan is better when it accelerates 0-96 km / h in 4.5 seconds before reaching an estimated top speed of 250 km / h.
Compare the Maybach GLS 600 and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan on the design
The appearance of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan once created a lot of praise when it was first released while the appearance of the Maybach GLS 600 gave a better first impression. The regular Mercedes GLS was inherently a good looking SUV, but the new special grille and exclusive 21-inch wheels add a special charm to the first Maybach SUV.
It can be said that the Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 is a typical sophisticated and luxurious car while the Rolls-Royce Cullinan has a design that ‘obliges’ every pedestrian to look.
Compare the Maybach GLS 600 and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan on the interior
Maybach GLS 600 is designed with many unique details and many high-end technologies and standard equipment. Panoramic sunroof, 7-inch tablet, 64-color interior luminaire, Burnmester sound system, wireless charging, heated and cooled cup holders, wooden shelves are all standard equipment of the Maybach GLS. That’s not to mention the separate air conditioning system for each seat. The Maybach GLS 600 takes the passenger experience to the next level with a separate two-seater setup with a fixed center console provided upon special request.
In contrast, Rolls-Royce Cullinan emphasizes luxury over technology. Digital steering clocks are still present, but they feel like a classic Rolls-Royce. Even the air vents look like they came from the 1980s.
There is no plastic material present on Cullinan. All are covered with real leather and wood. That is most clearly demonstrated through the rear door with umbrellas pre-mounted and given to you by the driver. When the Rolls-Royce Cullinan moves, the entire interior will be extremely quiet and the stereo system has been tuned by Rolls-Royce sound engineers to bring the most authentic feeling. Instead of feeling like the first-class cabin of the Maybach GLS 600, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan becomes the driver’s luxury living room.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is designed with the concept that customers will drive their own luxury SUV, while the Maybach GLS 600 aims to ensure the rear seats are the best place. The Rolls-Royce Cullinan has proven itself off-road and more ergonomic than the Rolls-Royce sedans have for decades. The Maybach GLS 600 is capable of off-road better than many would expect, but its power doesn’t match the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. In return, the Maybach GLS 600 is more affordable and comes with the most modern technology available today. From now on, the super luxury SUV segment in Vietnam will become more bustling than ever with the presence of all the big guys in the world.
