Practically unchanged since it was launched in 1979, the iconic go-anywhere G-Class is the longest-running model series in Mercedes-Benz history. It has been refreshed and revitalised with advanced new engines, enhanced exterior styling and interior cabin. The UK line-up comprises G 350 d and Mercedes-AMG 63.
Refreshed exterior design:
The G 350 d benefits from subtle exterior enhancements that include a distinctive three-louvre radiator grille, flanked by bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lamps, electric heated and folding door mirrors with integral indicators and front area lighting, which is now painted in body colour.
Engineered to last:
The “G” in G-Class stands for Geländewagen, meaning cross-country vehicle, and for more than three decades has overcome any obstacle in its path, including obsolescence. Its unrivalled combination of all-road ability and exceptional luxury has seen it win the Paris-Dakar Rally outright and transport two Popes, testimonies to its multi-faceted abilities. The G-Class is, and always has been, hand-assembled for Mercedes-Benz at the Magna Steyr facility in Graz, Austria. Each vehicle takes 40 hours to build, and production is pegged at just 15 a day.
