Mercedes AMG GLE 63 Coupé 4MATIC
Does the world need another turbocharged, performance hatch? Mercedes certainly thinks so, if the AMG GLE 63 Coupé 4MATIC is anything to go by.
Its twin-turbo V8 generates 577hp and 561lb-ft of torque, while the all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic, hits 100kph in 3.9 seconds. Driving tech includes adaptive braking and collision prevention but you can also take it back to basics with the M button, allowing you to crank through the gears manually.
It also handles and stops amazingly well for a vehicle of its stature. Its enormous Continental ContiSportContact tyres allow it to stop from 113kph in just 159 feet while its 12.5-second 0.4km is faster than a Ford Mustang GT over a comparable distance.
Throw in the luxury, roomy interior and what this all adds up to is a car that takes the concept of a modern performance hatch that has already been done by its rivals, and steps it
up at least several notches. It’s a combination that will take some beating.
