This Week’s Test Car

Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC Coupe

It ain’t pretty but then neither is the BMW X6 and look how well that sells. Mercedes’ answer to the Beemermobile is the GLE. And in 63 S guise, it’s one of the hottest SUV’s available. Powered by a mighty 5.5-litre V8 biturbo that spits out 585bhp, this ridiculous car will power to 60mph in just 4.2 seconds, with a top speed of 175mph. Expect to stop at a lot of fuel stations because it only manages 23.7mpg (combined) if you are very, very careful. Pried at £98,885, will the bonkers GLE 63 S be the right car for you? We give it a November work-out around the Cotswolds…
