The second-generation of theMercedes-AMG G 63 SUV has been launched in India atRs 2.19 crore (ex-showroom India). This is the top-spec version of the new G-Class, which received its first full generation change last year, since being introduced in 1979 as a decidedlyutilitarian vehicle for mainly military applications.

Aside from the relatively untouched looks of the new G-Class, the G 63 comes with AMG-specific trim like an AMG-specific front apron and Panamerica radiator trim, new AMG specific side skirts, 20-inch (optional 22-inch) AMG wheels and beefed up wheel arches. The brakes with red callipers and chromed side-mounted exhaust pipes complete the look.

The interiors have also received the uprated AMG treatment with a new instrument cluster, more options for interior trim, quilted seats and contrast stitching. A new AMG-specific steering wheel finished in carbon-fibre, paddle shifter, a wheel centring marker, unique adornments like sill plates and an IWC complete the look on the inside. Other than this, the larger cabin space, MBUX infotainment system and better overall refinement of the new G-Class remain intact.

Extensive changes have been made to this SUV to make it fit to carry the G 63 moniker. The first of these is the addition of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo AMG motor as seen on other AMG cars like the E 63 and S 63. This makes 585PS and 850 Nm in this application. Consequently, the new G 63 gets from 0 to 100kmph in 4.5s and goes on to an electronically limited top speed of 220kmph. This increases to 240kmph when the optional AMG Driver's Package. The 'hot V' arrangement of this engine in which the twin-scroll turbochargers are positioned between the cylinder heads allows for better response while greater efficiency is achieved with the cylinder shut-off function under partial load.

This motor is mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission retuned for quicker responses. The AMG Ride Control drive mode system has been reworked with new componentry to suit this car's more dynamic set up with additional modes to aid off-roading.

The all-wheel drive, three differential locks, a ladder-type frame plus engageable low-range gearbox remain untouched. Larger, ventilated and perforated brake discs and a new AMG-specific exhaust system with variable flaps are other additions.

The G-Class has been a legend when it comes to off-roaders and the G 63 has, in its earlier iterations, taken that credibility and added a mix of performance and presence hardly matched by other SUVs. This new version, with its more refined, practical and up-to-date underpinnings, looks to keep all those attributes intact in a package that is more accessible, efficient but equally imposing.
