When Mercedes Benz put their AMG engines into the G Class it was in a class of one when it came to utilitarian looks with huge amounts of power and luxury fixtures and fittings. The G55 AMG was a re-imagination of an ageing design that brought it back into relevance in today's market and more than just a nostalgic throwback. The remainder of the G Class range however didn’t seem to have the same appeal and a none-AMG model ‘G-Wagon’ became a rarity on the roads. Other G-Class’s than the range topping model not only looked like they were as utilitarian as an army vehicle, but the lack of appeal to the interiors, engine choices and specifications meant that it didn’t feel much different than a tank to drive.
For 2019 the second-generation G-Class was launched and although at first glance it may not have changed much from the outside, the inside has definitely been given a thoroughly modern overhaul. The exterior changes are subtle yet the whole car looks neater, more refined and contemporary rather than old fashioned. The interior now includes features such as Mercedes dual 12-inch wraparound digital screen dashboard, the finest Nappa leather, 64 colour ambient lighting, cabin ionisation with charcoal filter system and Burmester surround sound audio. From the cabin, the abundance of technology and attention to detail means you could be mistaken for thinking you were in any luxury Mercedes Benz, not something you could easily say for the previous generation.
The driving dynamics, handling and engine choices have also been given a thorough overhaul to be brought up to modern day standards. The biggest change to handling is the front axle now having independent suspension allowing for greater control and a more assured feel than the rigid axle before. The new platform also means that there is a 170kg less weight to be transported and controlled in the corners. An abundance of driving aids from active brake assist, active lane keeping assist and pre-safe attention assist mean that the solid feel of the G-Class is now thoroughly backed up with safety features.
Modern engines in the form of turbocharged in-line 6 cylinder and V8 powerplants mean that the AMG range topper is no longer the only model worth considering. For some the G63 is too brash, too shouty and too much showing off for a retro-looking utilitarian style vehicle. For those looking to be a bit more under the radar they now have a selection of diesel models that suit the ruggedness and aesthetics, but now combine this with more sensible fuel economy and a less noisy demeaner. With the updated G-Class, Mercedes have finally created a model in the range for everyone, and not those looking for the AMG power hungry route.
