Mercedes-Benz has reopened reservations for the Maybach GLS 600 and AMG G 63 in India. It is to be noted that the brand closed the order books for both models in March 2022. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz has promised to bring 10 new models to the country this year. Notably, it already started its new year in India with the launch of the new AMG E 53 4Matic+ Cabriolet.

The Mercedes-AMG G 63

Mercedes-Benz introduced the new-generation model of the legendary AMG G 63 in India in October 2018. Whereas, the G350d was launched in October 2019. The G 63 sports all the bells and whistles from AMG, such as a high-performance braking system, performance exhaust system, AMG ride control with electronically controlled damping, and three differential locks.

Powering the AMG G 63 is the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 mill generating 585PS and 850Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. It can sprint from a standstill to 100kmph in just 4.5 seconds and tops out at 220kmph.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600

The Maybach GLS 600 is the first-ever sports utility vehicle developed by Maybach. It arrived in India in mid-2021 with merely 50 units allotted for the market. However, Mercedes had already sold all 50 units even before its launch. The ultra-luxurious Maybach GLS 600 now returned to India as Mercedes has reopened its bookings. The highlight of the SUV includes a first-class style second-row seat, Nappa leather upholstery, rear screens, heated, ventilated, and massage functions for all four seats, temperature-controlled cup holders, and a portable refrigerator, among others.

The Maybach GLS 600 is powered by a 3,982cc, twin-turbo, V8 petrol mill featuring the EQ Boost system, that is, 48-volt mild hybrid functionality. It produces 557PS and 730Nm of torque. With this, the Maybach GLS can achieve 0-100kmph in 4.9 seconds and provides a top speed of 250kmph. The motor is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

In other news, the Maybach GLS 600 and G 63 facelift prototypes have been spied testing on a few occasions. Both refreshed models are likely to make their global debut sometime this year. No to mention, Mercedes-Benz has already showcased the all-electric Maybach EQS and EQG concepts based on their corresponding ICE versions.
