Mercedes-Benz India will launch the all-new G63 AMG in India on October 5, 2018. The new car is packed with a list of updated features.
The most worth-noting changes can be noticed in the interior with a totally updated dashboard. Some new features offered as standard include a widescreen cockpit with analogue instruments and alternative digital instruments with an infotainment display measuring 12.3 inches. Other updated outstanding pieces of equipment consist of new front seats and a brand-new bench at the rear.

In terms of the exterior, a brand-new aluminium body shell with a ladder platform underpins the vehicle, which increases its width by 210mm and expands the legroom at the rear by 150mm. The new G63 AMG also offers a redefined suspension setup, which raises the ground clearance by 6mm, up to 241mm and is lacked in its predecessors. Despite these changes, the new-gen G63 AMG still retains some standard features, including
A vertically barred front grille
A lower bumper at the front
Wider wheel arches
Larger LED headlamps
21-inch alloy wheels
Rear side exhausts

Instead of the previous 5.5-litre petrol engine, a V8 A 4.0-litre twin-turbo one supplies power to the new AMG G63, which helps this vehicle produce 585bhp and 850Nm of peak torque, 14bhp and 90Nm more than the previous model. This engine comes paired with a brand-new 9-speed automatic gearbox, which provides power for all four wheels, thanks to the $Matic all-wheel-drive system of Mercedes.
The new SUV can accelerate from a standstill to 100km/h within only 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the new G63 AMG has been raised to 220km/h. But a good news for people who like fast speed is that a “Driver’s Package” is offered by Mercedes-Benz with all-new wheels and tyres, which allows drivers to drive at 240km/h at most.

Mercedes-Benz has not officially announced the prices for the new AMG G63 but it can be expected to cost slightly higher than the current model costing Rs 2.19 crore. Once launched, it will replace the G65 V12 version on the G-Wagen and possibly directly rival the Range Rover Sport SVR. A new hybrid version of the new AMG G63 is also being considered. Let’s look forward to the launch of this premium SUV.
