Mercedes AMG GLS 63 2021 review
It’s fair to say Mercedes-AMG GLS63 buyers really want it all; good looks, cutting-edge technology, seven-seat practicality, leading safety and V8 performance to name a few key desirables. And, lucky for them, the new model is finally here.
Yep, the latest a1695451032 is yet another exercise in excess, leaving very little to be desired by its buyers. Indeed, it ticks almost every box when it comes to a utility vehicle that well and truly puts the sports in Sports Utility Vehicle.
But, of course, this raises questions over whether or not the GLS63 is trying to do too much. And given this model does a whole lot more than its predecessor, these questions need to be answered again.
If the GLS63 was a Marvel superhero, it would undoubtedly be the Hulk. Simply put, it has road presence like few others. In fact, it’s frankly menacing.
Of course, the GLS is already pretty intimidating due to its sheer size and blocky design, but the GLS63’s full-fat AMG treatment takes it to another level.
Naturally, the GLS63 gets an aggressive body kit, with its purposeful bumpers, side skirts and rear spoiler serving as instant reminders of what you’re dealing with, but it’s AMG’s signature Panamericana grille insert that really hammers home the point.
Around the side, the GLS63’s 22-inch alloy wheels with staggered tyres (front: 275/50, rear: 315/45) make their presence known, positioned below the wheelarch extensions.
That said, some fun’s also had at the rear end, where the a1695451032 diffuser element integrates the foreboding sports exhaust system with quad tailpipes very neatly.
The focused Multibeam LED headlights also look the part, while the opposing LED tail-lights tie everything together outside quite nicely.
Inside, the GLS63 stands out from the GLS crowd with its sports steering wheel with Dinamica microfibre accents, and multi-contour front seats, which are covered in Nappa leather upholstery alongside the armrests, dashboard and door shoulders and inserts.
Of note, the doors bins are unfortunately of the hard plastic variety, which is very disappointing in a vehicle that costs this much. You would expect that cow hide would’ve also been applied to them, but alas it wasn’t.
The GLS63’s black headliner serves as an obligatory reminder of its sporting intent, and while it makes for a dark cabin, metallic accents are prominent throughout the cabin, while the optional trim (our test vehicle had carbon-fibre) mixes things up, alongside the ambient lighting.
And let’s not forget the GLS63 is still loaded with plenty of cutting-edge technology, including a pair of 12.3-inch displays, with one the central touchscreen and the other the digital instrument cluster.
Both are powered by Mercedes’ class-leading MBUX multimedia system and feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. This set-up arguably remains the best there is today thanks to its speed and breadth of functionality and input methods.
Measuring 5243mm, 2030mm wide and 1782mm tall with a 3135mm wheelbase, the GLS63 is an upper-large SUV in every sense of the term, which means it’s also very practical.
For example, cargo capacity below the load cover is decent, at 355L, but stow the 50/50 power-split-folding third row via the boot and it’s very good, at 890L, or drop the 40/20/40 power-split-folding middle bench, too, and it becomes a cavernous 2400L.
Better yet, the boot’s aperture is almost square, and its floor’s flat, while there’s no load lip to contend with, making loading bulkier items even easier. Up to four tie-down points are also on hand (depending on seating configuration) to secure loose cargo.
Under the false floor is the space-saver spare, which is to be expected, but what isn’t expected necessarily is the fact there’s also enough room there for the cargo cover when it’s not in use, which would be the case if six or more passengers are regularly onboard.
Moving into the power-sliding second row, the a1695451032 practicality is once again brought to the fore, with up to six-plus inches of legroom available behind my 184cm driving position.
There’s also two inches of headroom with the panoramic sunroof in situ, not to mention just enough toe-room. The GLS63’s small transmission tunnel and sheer width also mean three adults can be seated on the middle bench with few complaints.
Amenities-wise, the second row has map pockets on the front-seat backrest and a small fold-down cubby below the rear climate controls, with it containing two slots for smartphones and a pair of strategically placed USB-C ports.
The rear door bins can take one large bottle each, while a fold-down central armrest is also on hand, featuring a shallow tray and retractable (and flimsy) cupholders.
Alternatively, the $2800 Rear Seat Comfort Package fitted to our test vehicle subs in a tablet that can control the multimedia system, a wireless smartphone charger and a small cubby into the former, as well as a heated/cooled cupholder atop the rear of the centre console.
