The street is melting. Or is it the glistening film of the water fountain? It’s all the same to the Mercedes-AMG G 63. It flaunts its expressive exterior design. A look that makes it clear right from the start: I’m calling the tune. The AMG-specific radiator grille, the optionally available 22-inch wheels and the distinctive AMG Performance exhaust system with two dual tailpipes exiting at the sides lend the icon an extrovert exterior. The Mercedes-AMG G 63 makes no distinction between lava and asphalt. Its performance is exemplary. Off the road, it has always been unmatched. But the off-road giant also captivates with superior driving performance in the city. This makes it a king away from the wilderness, too: in the concrete jungle of the city.
