Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Everything To Know

The whole vehicle is yet to be seen, but the interior was open to poking and prodding and TMR joined the grubby-fingered masses for a first look.

For the S 560, only AMG Line trim is available.

Eighteen hundred wireless access points and almost 4,000 miles of fiber optic cables will power every fan's second-screen experience, even if they all stream video.

In building Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta, the ownership of the NFL's Falcons and MLS's Atlanta United understood the comfort of a living room couch in front of a flat-screen television and endeavored to compete with that appealing proposition.

Because the current G-Class has made it through nearly 40 years without a significant major exterior change the new model will be carefully cultivated to keep the spirit of the original alive, but the same can't be said for the interior, which has already had multiple overhauls over its life. Or the design of the iconic indicators, found again in the shape of the loudspeakers.

"Hallmarks of the G-Class include the grab handle in front of the front passenger and the chrome-highlighted switches for the differential locks, positioned in clear view". "G-Class drivers are able to control the full infotainment system without taking their hands off the steering wheel". Touch controls on the steering wheel respond to swiping motions, smartphone-style. Drivers can choose between three different styles for the displays - Classic, Sport and Progressive.

At the base of the b-pillar is a badge bearing the name, Schöckl.

The highly anticipated G-Class luxury SUV has received a first look from Mercedes-Benz.

The G-Class is now bigger than before and this means more interior room, indeed front and rear legroom is up by 38mm and 150mm, respectively. Second-row passengers will be making entry through the wider door openings and relish an additional legroom of 5.9 inches, shoulder room of 1.1 inches, and elbow space of 2.2 inches. Both front and rear seats are heated and finished in a choice of black, brown or beige leather trim with driver's side memory function.

Prices for the new auto start at £115,910 for the S 560 AMG Line, with the Mercedes-AMG S 63 available from £140,610 and the AMG S 65 costing £197,510.
