The eagerly awaited G-Class Mercedes-Benz is finally “returning to the UK later this year”, according to PistonHeads.com. The iconic right-hand drive “city slicker” will return to our roads in the autumn with a choice of either diesel or supercharged petrol engines.
“The legendary G-Class benefits from new additional features that primarily enhance comfort and exclusivity in the interior”, reports emercedesbenz.com. The new G-Class might have been injected with modern enhancements, but the indestructible hallmark traits have been left untouched since 1979.
Celebrating its 30th birthday in style, the G-Class has been given many new shiny features, such as automatic climate control, automatic transmission, with high and low gear ratios, Bi-Xenon headlamps, heated seats, leather upholstery as well as reverse parking aids (ladies might appreciate this nifty addition).
According to Piston Heads, the new G-Class range offers “high-performance driving dynamics, as well as supreme off road ability” – pretty much everything you want from a modern 4×4. In order to highlight the fantastic exterior of the G-Class, Mercedes have added new paintwork options, including the palladium silver metallic”, and the “design platinum magno” matt finish, which help to show off the striking body design of the “G” and also helping to make a distinctive unique statement.
Whether you’re looking for a “city slicker” or a “rural runabout”, the G-Class promises to deliver a sound performance vehicle that is built to take on any terrain. According to emercedesbenz.com, “Mercedes-Benz is once again going its separate way with the G-Class”, which is apparently paying off with the “consistent effort that Mercedes-Benz has put into the evolution of the “G”, helping to safeguard its leading position.
