Autocar Middle East magazine named the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG best “Luxury SUV” of 2006.
Autocar’s editorial team and guest judges spent three days evaluating a number of entries in the “Luxury SUV” category, subjecting each of the vehicles in question to extensive on-road testing to gauge everyday drivability and also taking a trip to the Dubai Autodrome to check the models’ performance in a controlled environment.
The ML 63 AMG was introduced into the Middle East market in the third quarter of this year.
Under the bonnet is a new 6.3-litre V8 engine which unleashes a massive 510 hp at 6800 rpm and a maximum torque of 630 newton metres at 5200 rpm powering the vehicle from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds.
“The ML 63 AMG offers powerful performance that excites like no other off-roader in its segment,” said director, sales and marketing, Mercedes Car Group, Middle East, Johannes Fritz.
