2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Is The SUV You Want, Not Need

Mercedes‘ new AMG-powered G-Class is far from being the most practical SUV in the world. Not only does it cost a lot of money, but it also isn’t as comfortable as other, considerably cheaper large premium people haulers, such as the GLS 63 for example.

Yet, according to Carwow editor Mat Watson, this latest-generation G63 is a great deal more refined and easier to live with than its predecessor, a car that was seriously lacking in advanced on-board tech.

Another major difference between the new and the old model is the overall quality of the interior, which is now almost on par with most other luxury SUVs, although you can still find bits of hard plastic here and there, reminding you of the G-wagen’s utilitarian nature.

Aside from its better built interior, there are also loads of storage spaces inside the all-new G63, and you also get Mercedes‘ fancy 64-color ambient lighting system moving throughout the cabin, in the front and rear.

Speaking of the rear, knee-room is more decent now that before, as the older model was far from impressive when it came to overall comfort – something we also noticed while reviewing this 2017 G350d earlier this year.

On the road, the 2019 G63 will actually brake and steer around obstacles properly, says Watson, while stating that its predecessor felt extremely wobbly and uncertain of itself when it came to anything resembling dynamic driving.

As for straight line performance, there’s plenty of it in the new G63, which is powered by a twin turbo 4.0-liter V8, good for 585 PS (577 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. Despite its massive size and weight, this SUV will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, and if you opt for the AMG Driver’s Package, you can raise its top speed from 220 km/h (137 mph) to 240 km/h (149 mph).

      Not in love with MB “off-roaders”… to me the whole MB thing is too pedestrian for true rugged off-roading.
