Call it desperation or call it an effort to bring back its lost sheen but Mercedes Benz will surely be on toes this year. Seem to have planned a hectic schedule this year, the German car maker fears that it could be pushed further in sales by its two German friends. But Mercedes seems to have come back with a bang.

Catering to the top brass in India, the Mercedes Benz G63 AMG price in India at Rs 1.46 crore and it will replace the already present Mercedes Benz G55 AMG.
Just as the G55 AMG, this SUV will be coming to India through the completely built unit route and it is all set to rock the top class SUV segment in the country. This car will be the third highest priced Mercedes car after the Mercedes Benz SLS Class and Mercedes Benz CL Class. And if Mercedes has its priced above these there are some serious expectations that the new SUV in town can fulfill. Besides being a true SUV, the car has a lot of features that make it one of the most sought after SUVs internationally. In other markets of the world, the car has cherished some of the best known celebrity parking lots and is a hit.
The twin turbo 5.5 L engine outputs mind boggling 536 hp power and 760 Nm of torque that means that there will be power, power and much power under the hood. With so much power, the car can easily reach 100 kmph mark from 0 kmph in just 5.4 seconds. In order to keep the horses tamed, the car speed has been restricted to 210 kmph.
