The latest version of the highly revered Mercedes-AMG G63 has been around India for several months. Let's take a look at what makes the iconic SUV so successful

Mercedes is among few carmakers has succeeded in preserving their symbolic character like the G Wagen for so long. Few months since the iconic Mercedes-AMG G63 hit the Indian shores in late 2018, it sits on the rankings of the most-received SUVs in the Indian auto space. The new generation of the Mercedes-AMG G63 was released in India along with a more dominant performance, imposing exterior aesthetics and state-of-the-art interior fitments.

1. Mercedes-AMG G63 Exterior

Spending a rather tough time identifying the outgoing generation from the new one seems to be normal. However, try to keep your heartbeat slow when your eyes absorb three dimensions of the Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV from every direction as you hardly find the similarities between the new version vs the original one.

It will not take you much time to distinguish the new-gen Mercedes-AMG G63 versus the old one

Has been around the corner since 1979, the G63 delivered a strongly impressive look with the fascinating design story of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The 2018 model comes across as a robust SUV with extended dimensions and a number of changes in terms of styling, such as a lot of sophisticated exterior details, redesigned front grille and bumpers with a matte-silver kick plate, new multi-beam LED headlamps, LED taillights, vertical louvres and a central star up front, a “V8 turbo” lettering on the side and a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. What’s more outstanding from the outside is a set of 22-inch alloy wheels that is mated to a glimpse of red-painted brake callipers. All these updated elements contribute to the most unmistakable characters in the new AMG-G63 in both the external and internal markets.

2. Mercedes-Benz AMG-G63 Interior

It is not exacerbated to say that the Mercedes-AMG 63 is not merely a mean of transportation. All passengers can enjoy the highest sense of spaciousness inside the vehicle with the most advanced interior features enabling spectacular entertainment, ceaseless comfort and incredible driving convenience.

The newly designed Nappa leather seats with “AMG” badge offer the feeling of luxury while travelling. With the spirit of versatility, modernity and luxuriousness, the AMG G63 gives us a sense of plush and expensive from every touch on even a single button. The premium sportiness is more elevated by the harmonious red and black contrast upholstery and the bright-red racy seatbelts as compared to the earlier version. If you are seeking for a car friendlier to nature, the new AMG G63 will top on your perfect choices list. The high seating position and the larger windshield and windows will give you a better view of the surrounding sceneries along the roads.

Don't be shocked at the long list of cutting-edge features inside the super-SUV

Roominess is always the no one priority of Mercedes’s engineers and design experts. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG G63 is well-designed with the capability of reclining the rear seats to offer the maximum practical boot space. Even a ton of luggage could be fitted in the G63, so cool for a weekend getaway.

3. Mercedes-AMG G63 Engine

Preparing all sets to seriously participate in the SUVs competition, the German carmaker has made the most significant change under the G63’s bonnet. Unlike the older version that features a 5.5-litre V8 engine, the new SUV gets a heart of a 4.0-litre Bi-turbo V8 petrol burner that is capable of generating 585 hp of max power and a whopping 850 Nm of peak torque- the class-leading supercar-like figures in an AMG. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG G63 is claimed to perform the 0-100 kmph sprinting in only 4.5 seconds at the top speed of 220 kmph which is an extremely impressive acceleration for a 2.5-ton SUV. The car could even travel up to 240 kmph with more driver's package. A little point to enjoy the fastest velocity is the speed limit warning mandatory on all cars that you will be interrupted by the constant ringing after passing the 120 kmph. This system even deflates the music playback and is by no mean to be turned off excepting for lessening the speed under 120 kmph. It could be a bit bizarre for a 585 hp super-SUV but forget it, the superior acceleration of the G63 is enough to put the spotlight on.

The high-performance SUV will leave the most unforgettable driving experience on any passenger

The AMG Speedshift TCT 9-speed Sports gearbox comes along with hardware and software update which enables fastening the shift time, efficient fuel-saving style, dynamic acceleration and high responsiveness. The driver’s shift command could be performed in the fastest way than ever before with no constraints in tractive power. The agile suspension is available with the selection of passive damping system. Ensuring the endless driving comfort by the optimisation of driving characteristics, stabilisation and damping effect, the damping function could be selected to enhance the tyre sensitivity and vibration. Off-road driving performance of the G63 AMG continues to be incomparable effortless. The highest interaction among the AWD system, a ladder-tyre frame, differential locks and the low-range transmission facilitates the optimum riding comfort on every terrain and driving conditions.
