Mercedes G63 AMG As we have already stated many months back Mercedes Benz is now keen to step on the accelerator and bring in a flurry of products to India. The range of new launches for India this year covers nearly every segment space something that Mercedes is very keen to do so. Yesterday during our conversation with Eberhard Kern, MD and CEO Mercedes-Benz India Limited, he revealed that one of the first launches for this year is the new G63 AMG which will be launched within a few weeks! Yes, this iconic SUV in its new avatar will grace our roads in February. We knew the new G63 would be coming as demand for luxury SUVs is going through the roof in India. The new G63 is a modern take on the SUV icon and is basically is built as tough as a tank. A tank that is also luxurious. However what really puts a smile in your face is the engine which is a AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine developing a maximum output of 544 bhp and a torque figure of 760 newton metres. Thus this luxury SUV does 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds which means here is an SUV that has sportscar like speed which is just astonishing. Of course it is our job to do a full test of this stunning SUV in February itself! Mercedes A-Class But that is not all as some months later the much anticipated A-Class premium hatchback will come which will open up a whole new segment. The A-Class launch will be here in June and it will come dripping with style. Worldwide the A-Class has been extremely well received because of its good look and excellent dynamics. The coupe like styling is a massive plus point and coupled with the quality interiors that Mercedes is known for and you get a desirable package. The A-Class will come with a petrol and diesel engine and we would be especially waiting to try out the A200 CDI which has a 135 bhp 1.8-litre turbo-diesel motor. Expect competitive pricing in the range of Rs 22-25 lakhs. We can’t wait.
