Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 17 - 17 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The typical Maybach customer will not be put off by the price of the car. In a way, it's a guarantee of exclusivity. Insurance will also be costly and average fuel consumption can't really be expected to be any higher than 20mpg - lower if much driving is done in the city. Buying a Maybach does cover the cost of servicing the car for four years though.

With its large petrol engines and average fuel consumption of just 17mpg, it's no surprise that 57 performs so badly on the eco front. It emits 387g/km CO2 which is high, even for an executive saloon. To put this into perspective, other similar saloons would typically emit just over 250g/km CO2. Thankfully, buyers of these sorts of cars tend to clock-up fewer miles per year than those that own average family cars.

At this level, poor reliability would be inexcusable. The Maybach is a thoroughly developed car using proven mechanical parts and shouldn't give owners cause for concern.
