Introducing the Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Iconic looks, legendary ability. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class keeps the iconic boxy SUV looks of the original 'G-Wagon', whilst completely enhancing the vehicle's capabilities, technology and refinement.
Make no mistake, this is a serious off-road vehicle that offers the renowned quality of a Mercedes-Benz on-road too.
Discover more detail about what makes the G-Class so special below.
Why change an icon? The latest generation Mercedes-Benz G-Class looks almost identical to the original silhouette, which was released over forty years ago.
Of course, the silhouette may well be similar, but this iconic SUV has been bought right up to date in terms of style. Flawless 20-inch AMG wheels finished in black, with a high sheen finish give the G-Class a confident stance and work perfectly with the chrome detailing on the dominant grille, side steps and rear wheel housing. It demands respect, but the G-Class is not over the top in its delivery.
Complemented by restyled body work - enhanced over the original with LED lights and more aggressive body kit, the G-Class is quite simply an icon remastered for the new age.
Interior and Technology
For such a robust vehicle, associated with off-road adventures, the interior of the G-Class is spacious, robust and superbly luxurious with plush leather (available in multiple colours), brushed aluminium and of course the stunning dual-screen instrument cluster and infotainment display.
Five seats ensure there is plenty of space for all, with headroom suitable for even the tallest of people. The G-Class also offers enhanced boot space, which is a impressive 667-litres, which can be increased with the rear seats folded.
The G-Class certainly looks purposeful, which indeed it is, but the interior allows driver and passengers to get supremely comfortable in the process.
Economy and Performance
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is available to order with one engine choice in standard form. This comes in the form of a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder diesel engine. This is accompanied with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
This engine produces 286hp and can return 26mpg - which is good for a sizable SUV of this nature. This particular model can also complete the 0-62mph sprint in 7.4 seconds.
In typical Mercedes-Benz form, there is also an AMG model available with enhanced power and performance in the form of the G63. Discover more about this particular model on the dedicated Mercedes-AMG section.
