The G-Class, Mercedes-Benz’s off-roader classic first rolled out of production in 1979, and has gone on to set a benchmark for SUVs the world over.
The car carries a price tag of Rs 1.5 crore ex-showroom across India.
The G 350 d has been touted as the most efficient version of the G-Class of all time. It runs on a 2925 cc engine that packs 286 horse power and 600 Newton metre of torque. The car is capable of reaching 100 kilometre per hour from 0 in just 7.4 seconds. The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission in the G 350 d has a model-specific software application to achieve very short shift times.
