MERCEDES-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC AND G 63 ‘EDI­TION 463’

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Mercedes-Benz In­dia have in­tro­duced the all-new AMG GLS 63 4MATIC as well as the up­dated AMG G 63 in ‘Edi­tion 463’ guise in In­dia at Rs 1.58 crore and Rs 2.17 crore (ex-show­room, Pune) re­spec­tively.

The GLS 63 is a high-per­for­mance sport-lux­ury seven-seater that packs the M157 BiTurbo V8 that makes 585-PS. Paired to the sev­en­speed AMG SpeedShift unit with 4MATIC all-wheel drive, it de­liv­ers all of 760 Nm that peaks from merely 1,750 rpm all the way up to 5,250. The bel­low­ing V8 de­liv­ers ef­fort­less ath­letic per­for­mance, mak­ing it the most po­tent GLS on of­fer.

The sec­ond in­tro­duc­tion is the G 63 ‘Edi­tion 463’. While the G 63 was on sale here ear­lier as well, it was the 544-PS ver­sion. Now, in line with the global up­date, the swan­song G-Class ups its game with 571 PS and 760 Nm, from the same M157 5.5-litre BiTurbo V8. The AMG SpeedShift seven-speed unit con­tin­ues do­ing duty with the ad­vanced 4MATIC all-wheel-drive sys­tem and makes short work of any ter­rain.

Both cars of­fer five Dy­namic Se­lect drive modes, AMG Ride Con­trol, and a 40:60 split rear-bi­ased power trans­fer, with the G 63 also pack­ing three lock­able dif­fer­en­tials. Be­ing on the ‘de­signo’ plat­form, both al­low for a highly cus­tomis­able in­te­rior.
