Mercedes-Benz has added more power and equipment to its latest AMG GLS 63 4MATIC with a peak output of 430 kW. At the retail price of R1 283 900 – R2 469 900, the new GLS 63 4MATIC also comes with the updated design and high-quality interior.
The interior boasts what is an S-Class standard among SUVs. Furthermore, up to seven passengers are able to enjoy an outstanding level of spaciousness. Like its predecessor, the new GLS boasts ample elbow and headroom in all three seat rows.
Classic comfort values such as the seat row spacing or shoulder room are among the traditional strengths of the model series. With its diverse adjustment options, the centre seat row enables a high degree of flexibility in the interior, including a cargo position for optimum use of the luggage compartment.
Of particular note are a new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather with steering wheel gearshift paddles and 12 function keys as well as an airbag cover in nappa leather, instruments with modified details and also a newly designed instrument panel with semi-integrated colour Media Display.
On the outside, the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GLS 63 4MATIC reflects harmony and modern luxury to impressive effect. Chrome-look details such as the roof rails, underbody protection, beltline trim strips, luggage compartment handle and side sill trim create attractive highlights.
Those after a sporty look can select the AMG Line Exterior, comprising specific front and rear bumpers, running boards, wheel arch flares painted in the vehicle colour and 53.3 cm (21-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels.
All engines of the new GLS provide better performance, with in part reduced fuel consumption. The powerful GLS 500 4MATIC with V8 biturbo engine featuring direct injection now generates 335 kW, some 15 kW more than the preceding model, and with a peak torque of 700 Nm combines outstanding performance with the high level of refinement of these engines.
The peak torque of 760 Nm is now already available from as low as 1750 r/min. Despite a significant increase in performance, fuel consumption remains unchanged.
