Mercedes Benz AMG GLS 63 vs Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged SV autobiography Dynamic SWB

Comparing both the luxurious SUVs, the Mercedes Benz AMG GLS 63 has more cargo space alongside passenger capacity and a commodious cabin. With similar performance and fuel efficiency, despite being more traditional and a lesser graded infotainment system, upgrade with a few optional pacakges and the GLS will still not be close to the price of the Range Rover, effectively making it a better SUV if budget is a concern.

Mercedes Benz AMG GLS 63 vs Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63:

With these two large SUVs, you'd find impeccable quality materials and luxurious features alongside a powerful engine. But where the GLE falls short is the spaciousness and more passenger seating as compared to the GLS. The Mercedes GLS is a more expensive variant of the similar philosophy of the GLE and if money is a concern, the GLE is a great alternative.

Final Verdict

The 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG GLS 63 is a great and spacious SUV from Mercedes Benz. While its pricing seems hard to justify when you compare it to its younger siblings in the same class, the AMG variant promises more performance and luxurious features yet falls short when taking its MSRP, which if deemed a problem, you might as well settle for the GLE-class' AMG model.
