The G63 AMG that the cricketer uses is the current generation SUV that was launched in 2018. Mercedes-Benz has made several changes to the SUV but, the basic boxy design which is also the identity of the G-Wagen has been retained. When compared to previous generation G63 AMGs, the current version get rounded corner. Even Mercedes-Benz claimed that it is the most aerodynamically designed G-Wagen SUV. The round headlamps are new as well. They now come with integrated LED DRLs and the lights are LED too. Other than these changes, the overall design of the SUV makes it unmistakably a G-Wagen.
Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is a capable SUV both on and off-road. It has a 241 mm ground clearance. It rides on 21 inch alloy wheels. The SUV comes with Alcantara leather and carbon-fibre elements in the cabin. It is much more modern and offers several new features like twin 12.3 inch display on the dashboard. One of them is the instrument cluster, while the other is the touchscreen infotainment system. Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG seen here in the video is powered by a 4.0 litre, bi-turbo V8 petrol engine. The engine generates a maximum of 585 Bhp and 850 Nm of peak torque.
The engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and the power is sent to all four wheels. G63 AMG is a powerful SUV and the top-speed of the same is limited to 220 Kmph. Just like any expensive car, customisation options are available for G63 AMG as well. G63 is one of the expensive SUVs from Mercedes in India and a brand new SUV would easily cost you over Rs 2.5 crore, ex-showroom. Hardik Pandya also has other cars in his garage. He has been spotted with cars like Land Rover Range Rover, Lamborghini Huracan EVO, Audi A6 and also a very humble Toyota Etios sedan.
