It is a brand that is remembered and rejoiced with a sense of great pride and utmost respect. Truth be told, it’s among the most talked about and widely-popular symbols of lasting luxury in the modern conception of the automobile sphere. And despite finding itself at a time caught up with an increasing change in car-ownership patterns, with the rise in ride-sharing being the dominant discourse of our times, Mercedes is a brand that is both respected and considered a beacon of excellence. And now, there emerges a new behemoth from the German house of preciseness, luxury, and unmatched comfort. Let’s visit some 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class features.
But first up, let’s visit the all-important question. When is the Mercedes-Benz G-Class expected to arrive in India?
Well, it suffices to state that October 16, just when the new month would’ve hit the mid-period is where the patient wait regarding the sharp new arrival from the house of Mercedes would end. The Mercedes-Benz G, it must be said, is an important step that has been taken by Mercedes to expand its SUV line-up in the global market. The new arrival from the stellar German brand happens to be the standard version of the G 63 AMG and will happen to be the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz SUV line-up in India and much of South Asia.
That told, let’s run through a unique array of interesting Mercedes-Benz G-Class features:
1)The G 350d is powered by the OM 656 3.0 litre in-line six-cylinder engine with 286 PS and 600 nm.
2) The ravishing new arrival from the house of Mercedes claims to reach up to 100 kmph in as many as 7.4 seconds and a 199-kmph top-speed for this powertrain. Interestingly, 60 percent of this power is generated through the rear axle.
3) A robust and powerful looking machine, the G-class, with the availability of an all-wheel drive, comes with a standard issue-grille, slightly narrower track, and what could be called a more understated body-cladding. Eye-pleasing and sober, among the finest Mercedes-Benz G-Class features is the pleasing melange between the robust design and luxurious and elegant interiors that don’t compromise on space.
The interiors also use more Artico leather, open-pore wood and quilted stitching. All the new Mercedes bits like the metal detailing, turbine-style vents and the twin-screen MBUX infotainment set-up is also available.
It could be said that among the most talked-about Mercedes-Benz G-Class features are its rather toned-down styling, perhaps a keen throwback to the garrulous AMG G63.
In a way its opulence is staidly elegant and doesn’t really scream for your attention, while the car’s cost doesn’t really burn a hole in that pocket, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class priced at Rs 1 crore to begin with.
While to speak of its rivals in the market, one can’t really put down a finger to one particular competitor, it should still be suggested that leading muscular presences on the roads such as the Toyota Land Cruiser LC 200 could cut an imposing challenge to the latest offering from a brand that’s always keen to tackle the growing string of competitors.
Specifically from the price standpoint, while the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is not cheap in any way, it does undercut another familiar cousin from the Mercedes family: the famous AMG G63, which only starts from 2.1 Crore Rs.
