Speaking at the launch in Mumbai, Eberhard Kern, MD and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India, said, “The GL 63 AMG packs the perfect blend of style, luxury, sportiness and performance driving which are associated with the Mercedes-Benz and AMG brands. It is one of the most revolutionary products to come from Mercedes-Benz demonstrating the rich blend of sophistication with the latest design and technology. This is the perfect car for our customers and enthusiasts, who are passionate about performance driving.”
According to him, the company plans to continue the new model offensive with the GLA compact SUV expected later this year. The GL63 has been launched at a price of INR 1.66 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai) and does not have any real competition, except perhaps the Range Rover Sport and the Cayenne Turbo, which is a bit more expensive than this one.
Mercedes-Benz is celebrating its ‘Year of Excellence’ and the luxury carmaker plans to launch no less than 10 new offerings in India.
