Charming but flawed in a number of areasread the full model review
There really isn’t a lot you don’t get with the G63. All models have 20in wheels, adaptive suspension, adaptive cruise control, three diff locks, a sports exhaust, an electric sunroof, metallic paint, adaptive LED headlights, nappa leather seats, 64-colour ambient lighting and a twin-screen dashboard consisting of one 12.3in screen for its digital dials and another for the infotainment set-up. There are options available, but they (like the rest of the car, really) are totally unnecessary. As for safety, you get plenty of kit as standard, such as blindspot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.
From the moment you thumb the starter button on the dashboard, the monster that lives under the bonnet dominates the driving experience. It sounds fantastic and, while it may be 1.5 litres down on its predecessor, the current twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8's 577bhp and staggering 627lb ft of torque is enough to tow 3500kg; of course, it's real party piece, though, is the ability to fire the G-Class down the road at a right-old lick.
