Fastest Mercedes-Benz AMG Model 2016

The 2016 model year will prove to be a memorable one for Mercedes-Benz. Beginning with the introduction of the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S, followed by a number of renamed and revamped utility vehicles, change became the norm for model year 2016. Now that the dust has settled and the entire 2016 lineup has been released, it’s time to put the entire model lineup on an imaginary track to determine which 2016 Mercedes-Benz is the fastest.

Since we know Mercedes-AMG models are the fastest in each model range, we’ll only be looking at those models. For the purposes of this comparison, we’ll be looking at 0-60 times and not top speed or other track times, as 0-60 times tend to be the most practical measurement of speed.

*Times listed below are estimates according to Mercedes-Benz.

In the utility class, the new AMG GLE63 S Coupe reaches 60 mph the quickest, doing so in just 4.2 seconds.

There are, of course, other ways to measure speed. While we looked at 0-60 times here, quarter-mile times and top speeds provide a little different scope that may be more relevant to your driving experience.
