Mercedes-Benz has just released a set of interior images of their next-generation G Class, or more popularly known as G Wagon ahead of its global premiere at the 2018 North American International Auto Show. Since its debut in 1979, Mercedes-Benz has shifted more than 300,000 examples of the off-road legend and Malaysians are fortunate enough to be able to purchase one of these in the G 63 AMG guise no less.
Mercedes-Benz has touted that the G Wagon has “changed very little” on the outside but gets a redesigned and contemporary interior while staying true to its ‘Godfather of SUV” roots. Like its smaller siblings, the new G Wagon will get a Widescreen Cockpit courtesy of two 12.3-inch display, multifunctional steering wheel with touchpads as well as the turbine-styled air vents.
Not forgetting its utilitarian roots, the G Wagon retains its grab handles for front passenger and plenty of storage space. The rear door bins, for example, is able to accommodate a 1-litre bottle each. Interior space has also been expanded significantly for better comfort:
|Legroom – front||+ 38 mm|
|Legroom – rear||+ 150 mm|
|Shoulder width – front||+ 38 mm|
|Shoulder width – rear||+ 27 mm|
|Elbow room – front||+ 68 mm|
|Elbow room – rear||+ 56 mm|
Like the rest of the Mercedes-Benz range, the new G Wagon is available with a plethora of options such as wireless charging, massaging seats, Burmester surround sound system and many more. As standard, the G Wagon interior is furnished in Lugano leather (Black, Nut Brown or Macchiato Beige) which can be further specified with either the Exclusive Interior or Exclusive Interior Plus.
A sporty AMG-line is available on all interior trims that add contrasting red stitching for the upholstery, red seat belts and flat bottom AMG steering wheel. The next-gen Mercedes-Benz G Wagon will make its official debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show happening from 13 to 28 January.
