Fashions come and go, the legendary G-Class continues: Since 1979 the indestructible off-roader from Mercedes-Benz has been a permanent fixture in the model range, and continues to be extremely popular with fans around the world. Customers who wish to upgrade their G-Class with even more individuality, style and luxurious appointments will find the perfect package in two new special models: with a choice of the designo manufaktur Edition and the Exclusive Edition. The sales start date is 2nd May 2017, with the market launch starting in September. In addition, the digital services of Mercedes me connect further enhance comfort in the G-Class.
The two top models from Mercedes-AMG, the G 63 and the G 65 (combined fuel consumption: 17.0-13.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 397-322 g/km), are now available as the particularly high-quality Exclusive Edition. They have a particularly dynamic visual appearance thanks to a model-specific underguard of stainless steel, AMG sport strips on the sides, rub strip inserts in a dark aluminium look and the spare wheel cover painted in the vehicle colour. This is complemented by striking AMG light-alloy wheels with size 295/40 R 21 tyres: the G 63 is shod with 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in matt black with high-sheen spokes. The G 65 features ceramically polished light-alloy wheels in a 5-twin-spoke design. 53.3 cm (21-inch) 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels in black with high-sheen rim flanges and side rub strips with inserts in carbon-fibre look are available for both models. Apart from the other paint finishes in the sampler, the matt paint finish AMG monza grey magno is exclusively available as a highlight for the Exclusive Edition.
This special model also has a high-quality interior design: standard appointments include the designo Exclusive package with a two-tone, leather-lined dashboard and AMG sport seats with two-tone leather upholstery. There is a choice of two-tone designo nappa leather in six attractive colours, or as an alternative two-tone seats in designo nappa leather in three colours with seat side bolsters in black carbon leather. In both variants the seat and door centre panels are in a diamond pattern. Customers have a choice of AMG Carbon or black designo piano lacquer trim. The Seat Comfort package including multicontour seats and seat climatisation for the driver and front passenger are also on board the Exclusive Edition. Other options available from the designo manufaktur range include designo seat belts in red, leather-clad grab handles in the roof liner and a two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel matching the seat colours.
