Mercedes-AMG G-Class G63 2018 UK review



Firebrand AMG flavour is, for now, the only one in which the G-Class comes in the UK. It's as absurd as ever, but now much better-mannered and more luxurious with it

What is it?
In a market in which there seems to be another six-figure ‘super-SUV’ coming along every other week, with everyone from Aston Martin to Rolls-Royce gearing up to launch one, what future is there for the pumped-up, AMG-engined Mercedes Gelandewagen? Will anyone be willing to part with upwards of Ł140,000 for this boxy throwback, you might wonder. If you’re looking for luxury, capability, convenience and conferred status from an exotic SUV, you could have a Bentley Bentayga for the same money, a Range Rover Sport SVR for a lot less or a Lamborghini Urus for not much more.

Well, you might wonder. For a while, at least — until the new G63 rolls into the car park in which you’ve been waiting, side-exit exhausts burbling hilariously and brooding with enough visual charisma and Tonka toy menace that it could have been driven straight out of a three-year-old’s sandpit and then zapped by a reverse-miniaturiser raygun.

There are SUVs, and then there are SUVs like this one. SUVs with a roof you can’t see over, even if you’re 6ft 3in, and that you have to climb up in order to board, whether you’re extremely unused to doing so or not. SUVs with square corners, exposed hinges and the chunkiest of door handles. Proper SUVs.

A lot more here

That's the only expensive Mercedes I'd buy mainly to annoy my neighbors!

I've driven the old version, and it was terrible. It was like piloting a garbage truck! The new one is supposed to be more car like with a comfortable suspension and plush seats. BTW, it needs a big engine to move 2.5 tons of German iron!
