The updated Mercedes-Benz G-Class has arrived in SA.
All Mercedes-Benz G-Class models now offer up to 16 percent more power and up to 17 percent lower fuel consumption. The range includes the G 350 d with new improved performance from 155 kW to 180 kW, and the Mercedes-AMG G 63, also with new improved performance from 400 kW to 420 kW.
A new suspension set-up, together with more sensitive ESP control, results in increased driving stability, safety and road comfort. The exterior and interior have also been given an upgrade.
The G 350 d benefits from a hike in output from 155 kW to 180 kW, with its torque climbing from 540 to 600 Nm. The G 350 d now accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds instead of the previous 9.1 seconds.
The AMG G 63 now delivers 420 kW instead of 400 kW with torque of 760 Nm.
The G 350 d and the AMG G 63 are equipped as standard with an ECO start/stop function.
Visually, the new G 350 d is especially easy to identify by its restyled bumpers and now standard flared wheel arches in the vehicle colour. The G 350 d now also comes as standard with 18-inch five-spoke light-alloy wheels.
With the new EDITION 463 special model, Mercedes-AMG is giving the G 63 an impressive sporty look. The interior specification includes a two-tone instrument panel, two-tone seats in high-quality designo leather with side bolsters in carbon-look leather and contrasting topstitching, seat and door centre panels in a diamond look, carbon-fibre trim and door pulls in nappa leather.
On the outside, a stainless steel underguard, AMG sport stripes along the sides and a protective-strip insert in black aluminium look underscore both the dynamics and exclusivity of the special model. The G 63 is fitted with exclusive 21-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels in matt black with high-sheen spokes and 295/40 R 21 wide-base tyres.
