The G63 is not only a luxury SUV but also a capable off-roader

Off-Road – This Mercedes might have become more modern in terms of comfort, luxury and almost everything else but it’s hugely capable off-road. One of the very few cars to get three differentials – central, rear and front and you can lock them up individually too. There is a low ratio transfer case as well and once you activate the differentials, ESP and ABS is turned off. With a massive 241 mm ground clearance (no the ride height can’t be raised or dropped as it doesn’t get air suspension) and a water wading capacity of 700 mm, the G-Wagen can gobble up all kinds of terrains, effortlessly.

The G63 AMG is a sporty off-roader with a luxurious interior

Verdict – The Mercedes-AMG G63 is every bit a big step up over its predecessor. It’s bigger, faster, more agile, better riding, more luxurious, better equipped and has more space too, yet it retains the old world charm in the styling and feel of the original. That’s not all, it’s still a genuine off-road vehicle and an SUV in the true sense, sporty on the road and very capable off it. The G63 AMG oozes desirability like no other vehicle in the world, it has the charm and will make you smile no matter where you are, on the driver or passenger seat, or on the outside too. This is one SUV which has a soul like no other and also a price like no other!

Testers’ Note:

“I very well remember the feeling I got when I drove the G63 AMG Crazy Color in 2015 because that was the first time I was driving an AMG. It had mind-boggling performance and the way it accelerated like a wild animal gave me pure goosebumps. Coming to this 2019 model, it has evolved and how! Improved looks, so many new features, better quality, it has it all! Because of all these reasons, I have fallen in love with the G63 AMG more.” – Parth Gohil, Associate Editor, MotorBeam.
