THE G-CLASS GRAND EDITION


Essential values always endure Classics aren’t born as classics. It is only over the course of time that certain concepts emerge as enduring icons. And they almost always owe their success to one fundamental design principle: the unity of form and function. Not to mention a number of timeless qualities: reliability, performance and an absolute refusal to compromise their stylistic integrity. A case in point is the G-Class, whose characteristic profile has remained unchanged for over 25 years. A quarter of a century, during which its distinctive styling has resolutely defied the ebb and flow of trends and fashion. Today, with the exclusive G-Class Grand Edition, we invite you to rediscover a visionary classic among off-road vehicles.


Engineered for explorers


Design icons As a rule, few things in this world are so successful that they endure for decades. The G-Class is a particularly distinctive exception. Its classic design is part of an overall concept which has incorporated new technology so prolifically and successfully that it continues to exert a trend-setting influence to this day. Off the road or on it, to drive the G-Class Grand Edition is to discover how elegance, reliability and sheer power can be reconciled harmoniously. And, as with every design classic, the mere sight of it is enough to give you a sense of how enjoyable it is to use.


Comfort follows function


A master class in classic values Intelligent technology is capable of providing the space you need to be yourself. Proof of this is provided by a look at the classic elegance of the G-Class interior, where everything is calculated to make the everyday task of driving easier - and, indeed, to elevate it to a special experience. The finest black natural leather and wood trim elements in matt natural grain oak create a luxurious sense of space in the G-Class Grand Edition. At the same time, the elegant allanite grey magno* paint finish and equipment highlights such as the new-design 18-inch lightalloy wheels underline the stylish character of the vehicle. The G-Class Grand Edition combines refinement with a resolute sense of understatement. It quite simply has its own personality and is accommodating in a way that transcends anything that can be expressed in terms of centimetres.

* Special paint finish in matt silver metallic; also optionally available in obsidian black metallic, iridium silver metallic, cubanite silver metallic, andradite green metallic and nonmetallic alabaster white.


We’ll never get the mud out of its genes


Think of it as your country seat You don’t just travel in the G-Class, you experience it. It embodies sheer exclusivity and turns every journey into a relaxing voyage of discovery. It is, of course, still ideally suited to the tasks for which it was originally conceived. So, even if the road stops, the G-Class can keep on going. And if you could look deep beneath its classic lines, you would find that its styling is not the only thing that has remained unchanged: meticulous attention to detail is still the fundamental principle which defines the way we build every single vehicle. This slow, painstaking approach means that, even after years of use, the G-Class will still be able to take any terrain in its stride. And its exclusive Grand Edition appointments will still be an enduring source of pleasure.
