Mercedes-Benz, the global automobile manufacturer of vehicles, buses, coaches, and truck is a brand that is synonyms to luxury and class. The brand has ruled the Indian roads, in fact the world’s largest luxury car-maker Mercedes, retained the top position in the domestic segment for consecutive second year in a row this year.

It is Fast
Touching 100 kmph from standstill in 5.4 seconds definitely gives an adrenaline rush not only to the one behind the wheels of G63 but also to the passengers. This adrenaline is controlled though, as the car’s speed is electronically limited at a top-speed of 210 kmph.
The robust engine
The power of both the vehicles come from the monstrous 5.5-litre V8 BiTurbo engine but the output is different in both the vehicles. Where G63 stands at 563 bhp at 5500 rpm and 760 Nm of peak torque at 5000 rpm, the power in GLS is a bit higher with out 577 bhp and 760 Nm of peak torque. This amazing combination propels the engine and helps it reach helps it reach 0-100 kmph in less than 6 seconds.
A through off-raoder
With a massive towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg and load capacity of up to 2250 litres G63 is an impressive off-roading mean machine that makes it perform aptly on the difficult terrains. Equipped with an off-road reduction gear and the Electronic Traction System 4ETS, this SUV undeniably falls in the most desirable luxury four-wheeler. It is for those who love to conquer the stubborn terrains, because it has been designed to conquer mountains, deserts, and even 1-in-2 slopes. Aerodynamics of the beautiful vehicle has been especially taken care of.
Excellent engrossing stripes, stainless steel under-armour, and forged 21-inch wheels gives it a sturdy yet appealing outer look. On the inside, tailored ‘designo’ catalogue beautifies the aura of the G-Class. With the tailoring catalogue Mercedes has thrown the ball in its patrons court to play with. You get numerous options to choose colours from two tone, diamond-quilted leather seats.

The stainless-steel underside guard have been artistically crafted along with grey inserts in the side moulds for a meaner look. The special edition comes with the brute muscular boxy styling of the G-Wagen.
