Mercedes-Benz India today launched two of its exclusive and highly desirable Top-End Vehicles, the new Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC SUV and the Mercedes-AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE Edition 1 sedan; epitomizing the pinnacle of luxury with exceptional driving performance. The Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC SUV exudes sophistication with its unrivalled elegance, comfort and striking design, strengthening the appeal for Mercedes-Benz’s SUV portfolio. The AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE Edition 1 with its AMG performance hybrid technology, sets unique standards in the luxury performance saloon segment, emerging from the fusion of motorsport-inspired drive technology and outstanding luxury and comfort of a S-Class. The AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE is priced at Rs. 3.3 Cr., while the exclusive ‘Edition 1’ starts at Rs.
3.8 Cr. (Prices all-India ex-showroom)

For the first time, an S-Class Saloon bears the AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical louvres and a large central star. In the profile, the up to 21-inch AMG forged wheels and the AMG-specific side sill panels particularly stand out. At the rear, there are characteristic design features of the “63” models such as the trapezoidal, fluted twin-tailpipes and the wide diffuser with longitudinal fins and diffuser board.

The interior combines the high-quality appointments of the S-Class with AMG-specific features. The seats, with a special AMG-exclusive dynamic diamond stitching, underline the refined appearance. Exclusive colors and various Nappa leather upholsteries with an embossed AMG emblem in the front headrests emphasize the sporty and luxurious aspects of the S 63 E PERFORMANCE. Its position as a leader in the segment is also made clear by the First-Class rear cabin and multi-contour seats for four occupants. This is further emphasized by AMG-specific trim elements and the standard AMG Performance steering wheel with AMG DRIVE UNIT steering wheel buttons.

The MBUX infotainment system features various AMG- and hybrid-specific displays and functions. These include the displays in the instrument cluster, multimedia central display in portrait orientation in the center console and the optional head-up display.

The instrument cluster view can be personalized with different display styles and individually selectable main views. The head-up display also offers AMG’s display styles such as “Race” and “Supersport.” The AMG-specific “Supersport” style offers the option of displaying various content via a vertical menu structure.
Inspired by Formula 1™, developed in Affalterbach: the AMG high-performance battery.
The high-performance battery in the S 63 E PERFORMANCE has a capacity of 13.1 kWh. The battery is designed for fast power delivery and draw. The WLTP electric range is 33 kms.

The seven AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, “Electric,” “Comfort,” “Battery Hold,” “Sport,” “Sport+,” “Slippery” and “Individual,” are precisely tailored to the new drive technology, offering a wide range of driving experiences – from efficient to dynamic. The driving modes adjust important parameters including the response of the drive and transmission, steering characteristics, chassis damping and sound.
Short shift times, high efficiency: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9G transmission

AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with RACE START function, which ensures optimal acceleration from a standstill. In manual mode “M”, the transmission responds immediately and precisely to manual gearshift commands from the driver and implements the commands with lightning speed.

AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive combines the advantages of different drive concepts. The variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles ensures optimum traction at the physical limit.
AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension with adaptive damping as standard

The AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension is based on air suspension with automatic level control, combined with adaptive adjustable damping. The air suspension struts adapt to the driving situation, allowing a softer or firmer setup. Another feature is the level control system, which automatically lowers the S-Class by 10 mm at above 120 km/h.

The steering layout also contributes to the increase in dynamics and comfort. The three-stage AMG parameter steering system features a variable steering geometry ratio that adapts to the selected driving mode. The standard rear-axle steering operates with a maximum steering angle of 3.0 degrees.
