New Mercedes G-Class Pricing

(Monday 6 August 2012)

Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

It's not going to be the most popular Mercedes-Benz model in the UK or anything like it, but we thought you'd like to know that prices for the revised G-Class have now been confirmed.

Essentially the same as the car launched back in 1979 (but with several features which could barely have been imagined back then), the G-Class is being made available in four forms, but only two of them are being imported here. Fortunately, that includes the entry-level G 350 BlueTEC, which has a 211bhp three-litre V6 turbo diesel engine and the best - or least bad - official fuel economy and CO2 emissions in the range, at 25.2mpg and 295g/km.

The 350 costs £82,495, and as well as formidable off-road prowess that also buys you various niceties not previously available on the G-Class, such as LED daytime running lights, a spruced-up interior with leather upholstery and heated front and rear seats, the COMAND Online system, Parktronic audio and visual parking aids, electric folding and heated door mirrors, a new design of 18" five-spoke alloy wheel and a Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound audio system.

The other G-Class being brought to the UK is the G 63 AMG, which costs £123,115 and is completely bonkers. Its 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine produces a maximum of 544bhp (compared with the 507bhp of the G 55 AMG which this model replaces), and in this context its 20.5mpg combined fuel economy and 322g/km CO2 rating actually look quite reasonable. Good luck with getting anywhere near them in the real world, though.
