Article by Christian A., on November 26, 2012

The new Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will start production in January 2013. The price range for this model begins at £59,465 and goes up to as high as £91,680 for the AMG 63 model. The GL 350 BlueTEC AMG Sport has a length of 21mm and height that’s 10mm taller than its predecessor. Meanwhile, its boot capacity has increased by 60 litres.

It is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine, which develops 258bhp and 457lb ft of torque, leading to a zero to 60mph acceleration time of 7.9sec and a maximum speed of 137mph. The new model has a better fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figure than the previous generation, with a 15% improvement in fuel efficiency to 35.3mpg and a 14% cut in CO2 emissions to just 209g/km.

The automaker also improved its standard equipment levels. It has been equipped with bi-xenon headlamps with daytime running lights, AMG body styling, 21-inch AMG alloys, privacy glass, electric sunroof, air suspension and Park Assist.

The 5.5 litre GL63 AMG has an output of 557bhp and 531lb ft of torque, and it can accelerate from zero to 60mph in 4.9 seconds with a 155mph top speed. The seven-seater delivers 288g/km of CO2 and returns 25mpg on the combined cycle.

The AMG variant features flared wheel arches, 21-inch alloys, up-rated brakes and a sports exhaust system with chrome quad tailpipes. The changes to the interior include an AMG sports steering wheel, gear-shift paddles, AMG sports seats with front and second row heating and massage functions.

The model is made more comfortable and safe with several highlights. For example, the two models will feature Crosswind Assist, which applies the brakes to keep the car on course on a windy day. Also offered on the GL for the first time is Collision Prevention Assist.
