The Mercedes G63 AMG is a rugged, powerful, but also luxurious G-Class 4×4. Critics have reacted positively to the car, but – unsurprisingly – it also carries a large purchase price tag. Getting yourself behind the wheel of this car can be much more financially palatable with our offer of the Mercedes G63 AMG for hire. Here, we look closer at why hire of this car from us at Prestige Keys can be an absolute steal.
A vintage design paired with advanced internals
Experiencing this car for the first time can feel akin to meeting back up again with an old friend, before finding that they’ve improved themselves in pretty much every department. That’s because the car has a design that would’ve looked very familiar even to the heads of state and military oligarchs that the Mercedes G-Class category was originally introduced for. It’s very much a continuation of the rectilinear Geländewagen vehicle with a history going back over three decades – but there remain some vital differences…
These are largely on the inside; for example, the dashboard is more modern and features a new instrument cluster and centre console. Most of the interior surfaces, including the dashboard’s cliff face, are covered in high quality leather – while the onboard technology includes, as does the entire Mercedes AMG line, a Command Online multimedia system with, in the dash’s middle, a 7-inch colour screen.
It feels great both on and off the road
All of these features can undoubtedly give you the immediate feeling of comfort once you first place yourself into the driver’s seat – and the overall pleasing feel doesn’t go anywhere once you’ve turned the ignition and got the car actually moving. In reviewing the car, Autocar managing editor Allan Muir says that the Mercedes G63 AMG’s ride is “compliant and reasonably well controlled and refinement is commendable for this type of vehicle.” He adds that the car “isn’t so wide that it feels out of place on an average British road.”
It’s good off the road, too – making it an ideal choice for the particularly adventurous among us. The 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, three lockable differentials and 8 inches of ground clearance can all assist the vehicle in getting across tough, uneven surfaces. However, so well-equipped is this Mercedes that, according to Stuff writer Nishant Padhiar and largely thanks to the beefy engine, “you won’t even need to use the differential locks unless you’ve really gotten yourself lodged at the bottom of a volcano.”
Why you should ultimately hire the Mercedes G63 AMG
In fact, we think that Padhiar effectively sums up the core appeal of the Mercedes G63 AMG when he declares: “With the internals of a workhorse, the interiors of a king’s carriage and the snarl of an angry lion, this unique vehicle defies logic and that’s exactly its purpose of existence.” And it can be yours to drive – from just £500 per day – when you turn to our car hire company, which offers a broad choice of vehicles for hire.
