Mercedes Benz G63 AMG Beats Range Rover SVR

new first in the U.K. G63 more expensive than Range Rover SVR.
During our first drive of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the all-new SUV’s product manager was asked to identify competitors that might have been benchmarked in its development.
The look on his face was about the same as if someone had asked him to recite King Lear in Klingon. As far as Andreas Hoeppel was concerned, the G 550 and AMG G 63 doesn’t actually have a rival, or at least something the engineers and designers thought to compare it against. The G-Class is a G-Class, who cares what the other guys are doing?
Well, in case you care, we figured we’d plug the new G-Class’ specs into the old Autoblog Comparo Generator 3000 (TM) to see how the G 550 and AMG G 63 compare to the Range Rover and its mightiest SV Autobiography Dynamic model, plus the Lexus LX 570 and Bentley Bentayga V8.
Frankly, Heir Hoeppel was onto something as each of these is wildly different. But, they do share some common elements: giant size and weight, ultra-lux interiors, and far more off-roading capability than other luxury SUVs offer and any of its owners are likely to ever utilize.
Sad. So enjoy this trip down specification lane, and if you’re still left hungry, you can always check out our Range Rover comparison or create your very own comparo.
