Review Discovers Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe Makes Wonderful Sounds

If you’re still confused about Mercedes’ new model nomenclature, all you need to know is the GLE 63 Coupe is the Stuttgart’s answer to the BMW X6 M.

Unlike the X6, however, the GLE 63 Coupe is also available in a more powerful S variant, which was recently reviewed by Autocar’s Vicky Parrott. While the base Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe has 549hp (557PS), the GLE 63 S Coupe has 577hp (585PS) – 10hp more than the BMW X6’s 567hp (575PS).

Naturally, this amount of power makes it absurdly fast for a 2.3-tonne SUV – it covers the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in just 4.2 seconds.

Coincidentally (or not), that’s exactly the same time as the BMW X6 M. What the GLE 63 S Coupe excels at though is engine noise, which the reviewer says is among the most exciting in the segment.

    That is one of the biggest lumps of car I have ever seen. Unless she suffers from a form of dwarfism, that thing is utterly massive

    So not only are the Chinese to copy; be original is more challenging.

  • BlackPegasus

    The dash is dated.. Too bad. I wanted to like this thing. 😒

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    That really looks awful.

  • rover10

    Is white its best colour choice? May be this is one step too far for the current Mercedes design language. Somehow, it comes across as a caricature and for me it fails.

  • Eunos

    I don’t like X6 at all, not even a bit of it, but surprisingly I like GLE Coupe a lot, especially dat ass which reminds me of the Panamera, a car I also like.

  • Bittencourt

    The front lifting reminds me a 80/90’s VW! And i don’t like these black rims either…
    Anyway, great car!
