Mercedes-Benz had a packed stand at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 this year. The German behemoth revealed a range of new vehicles, some European debuts, come world premiere’s. Among the most eagerly awaited was the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63, a new niche-filling sedan based upon the hardcore GT. Here’s our roundup of the best it had to offer!
Mercedes-AMG GT 63
The star of the show was the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in GT 53 and GT 63 form. It blends the highlights of the two-door sports car with everyday usability. The 53 gets AMG’s inline 6-cylinder engine with 435 hp while the 63 gets the V8 engine with 639 hp. For full details, check out our earlier article on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe.
The A-Class is also all-new. It’s the first time we’ve seen it in Europe. The A-Class is the entry level Mercedes model. The German manufacturer has taken no chances. It has heavily invested in making sure that the A-Class is the leader in its class. There are technologies that you would expect to see in an S or E-Class. For full details on the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class, take a read through our earlier article.
Another European debut, the Mercedes-Benz CLS debuted late last year in Los Angeles. The CLS has always forged its own niche. The third generation model is no different. It shares the same characteristics as the previous generation with a low front and rear end, bout together by contours and reduced design lines. The grille echoes this with a wide base and forward slanting front section. For full details, take a look at our earlier article on the Mercedes-Benz CLS.
Mercedes-AMG G 63
A world premiere, the Mercedes-AMG G 63 is sure to be the most successful G Class model. The new model has been entirely re-engineered but remains true to the original. The new AMG G 63 is powered by a derivative of the same 4.0-liter V8 as the G 500 with a remarkable 585 horsepower, channeled to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system. Torque rises from 610 to 850 Nm. For more information, check out our earlier Mercedes-AMG G 63 article.
The new Mercedes-Maybach Facelift launched at the Geneva Motor Show too. Based on the long wheelbase S-Class it will hit the market from April onwards. It comes as the S 560, powered by a 4.0-liter V-8, and as the S 650, fitted with the AMG S 65’s 6.0-liter V-12. For more details on the Mercedes-Maybach Facelift check out our earlier article.
Mercedes-AMG C 43
The facelift C 43 makes its debut at Geneva too. A couple of years ago we used it’s predecessor as our means of transportation to and from the show. The new model retains the 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine with larger turbochargers operating at a maximum pressure of 1.1 bar. An additional 23 bhp boosts its reserves to 385 bhp at 6,100 rpm with torque stagnant at 383 lb-ft.
