New Mercedes-AMG G63 REVEALED - Range-topping G-Class is a monster

New Mercedes-AMG G63 REVEALED - Range-topping G-Class is a monster

The facelifted C-Class will be sold in three trim levels - SE, Sport and AMG Line - and Mercedes says the new entry- level SE spec will be higher than today's. Now in time for a catwalk/red carpet arrival at the 2018 International Geneva Auto Show in March, the German company has made a decision to debut online the luxurious new Maybach, complete with new luxury and design amenities.

Mercedes have not yet announced pricing for the 2019 Maybach.

Mercedes-Benz became the first auto manufacturer in India to showcase the Bharat Stage VI compliant vehicle a few weeks back.

This allows the bulky SUV to sprint from 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 137mph, or 149mph with the AMG Driver's package. Rear-wheel drive will be standard while 4Matic all-wheel drive is an option. Pricing will be announced closer to their availability in the United States, which is expected late this summer.

The two twin scroll turbos are mounted within the "V" of the engine block which, among other things, helps minimize turbo lag. This mode automatically engages if the driver activates any of the G-Class' differential locks, too. Although it may be tough to spot the differences from the outside, the boxy behemoth is more than two inches longer and almost five inches wider than its predecessor, with subtle updates that include a rearview camera mounted beneath the spare wheel on the rear door, and a new version of the G-Class' raised turn signal indicators, which recess in case of a crash.


As far as can be seen from the official images, this new model retains a number of trademark styling cues from the coupe version. At the back, gone are the bulbous taillights, in their place are a set of brand new sculpted taillights that stretch from the edge of the license plate frame to the rear quarter panel.

Visual changes to the G-Class distinguish this as an AMG model, including a re-profiled front bumper with large air intakes to aid cooling, while a new grille - reminiscent of that on the AMG GT sports vehicle - also features on the auto.

The bigger body also makes for more space inside: front (+38mm) and rear (+150mm) legroom, front (+38mm) and rear (+27mm) shoulder room and front (+68mm) and rear (+56mm) elbow room are all markedly better than before. Buyers can now opt for the 10.25-inch COMAND display screen, along with the 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster.

But the changes haven't stopped there.

Also available are electrically-adjustable heated seats that feature a massage function and climate-control, as well as an "AMG Performance" steering wheel finished in nappa leather.
