If you desire a vehicle that
offers effortless style, luxury and performance, and the exclusivity of an AMG
badge, the GL 63 4Matic assuredly ticks all the boxes. This full-size SUV is an
accomplished people carrier too, and provides plenty of cargo capacity.
The GL 63 is an impressive-looking automotive beast, and bigger than the average vehicle, which is where its stainless-steel running boards come in handy. Normally just for show, these provide a more than useful step up into the cabin, while a five-door body ensures that access is easy for all. The vehicle’s purposefully flared wheel arches contain lightweight and stylish 21-inch alloy wheels. At the rear of the car are chrome-trimmed quad exhausts that issue the GL 63’s low, insistent growl.
Inside the vehicle’s extremely spacious cabin, there are three rows of seats, enabling the GL 63 to transport up to seven travellers. The middle bench tilts forward, enabling easy access to the car’s rearmost seats, which are especially suitable for younger travellers, and can be folded with the press of a button. Sports bucket seats are fitted in the front row, and the driver benefits from a commanding view of the way ahead. Automatic temperature control provides micro-climates within the cabin, and second-row travellers are able to enjoy their own air conditioning. The GL 63 delivers impressive boot volume: 680 litres with all seats in place, rising to 2,300 litres with all but the front row folded.
The vehicle is fitted with a 5.5-litre 550bhp petrol engine, which is powerful enough to easily handle a full complement of travellers and cargo. This V8 unit is attached to seven-speed automatic transmission, and produces a peak torque of 760Nm and 0-60mph in approximately 4.7 seconds. This particular GL 63 iteration comes with 4Matic system, which delivers enhanced four-wheel drive. Three drive modes (Comfort, Sport and Manual) are included too, allowing you to more than match a range of surface and weather conditions.
A 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen system is in place, providing flawless sound reproduction. This allows occupants in each position to fully enjoy favourite tunes, digital-quality radio stations and captivating audiobooks. Satellite navigation features too, making the process of journey planning and last-minute route adjustment as intuitive and stress-free as possible. A range of connective inputs are included: AUX, USB and SD – and Bluetooth®, which facilitates music streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
The GL 63 is fitted with an array of driver aids, such as Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Cruise Control and Active Curve Control. The latter, for instance, significantly reduces the risk of body roll when taking corners, accelerating or braking. A wide range of passive protective features are included to keep passengers of all ages safe, such as a host of airbags and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points.
