To most onlookers, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may look like the same car that the brand launched almost 40 years ago. Yet the German luxury car company assures everyone that this is an all-new model.
And this is the appeal of this model. It has stayed true to the shape that has made it an icon on just about any road it has traveled. The boxy profile is instantly recognizable from a mile away. It projects an image of power that befits the three-pointed star up front.
Mercedes-Benz says that this Gelandewagen is longer, wider, and taller. New headlamps and taillights, side blinkers, and other subtle details help distinguish this new one from previous iterations. And yes, there are a host of smoother surfaces on various parts of the vehicle.
Inside, the added girth pays off in terms of added space. There is a lot more rear seat legroom—perfect for those that prefer to be chauffeured around. Plus, the new dashboard is a lot more modern, along with a host of connectivity options for the mobile lifestyle set.
