The Mercedes G 350 d – the entry-level version of the new Mercedes G-Class – goes on sale in the UK with prices starting at £94,000.
It’s a whole year since the new Mercedes G-Class was revealed as Mercedes took their iconic off-roader, made it fit for the 21st century and managed to make it look just like the existing G-Class, all at the same time.
Until now, the only G-Class you could actually buy was the bonkers G 63 AMG, a slab-sided off-road icon with alarming performance and a £135,000 price tag. But not any more.
The new Mercedes G 350 d arrives on sale in the UK with a price tag which manages to dip below the £100k barrier (it’ll cost you £94,000) and comes with a 3.0 litre six-cylinder diesel engine with 282bhp and 442lb/ft of torque and, officially at least, economy which should see you get more than 20mpg in the real world (it’s officially 29.4mpg).
The G 350 d comes with 20″ AMG alloys, LED headlights, leather, 12.3″ digital instrument panel and matching 12.3″ infotainment, ambient lighting, AMG body kit, heated memory front seats, heated rears eats, Assistance Package, Keyless, Lane Keep Assist and three-zone climate.
It’s a Mercedes, so there are numerous optional packages including Premium Package (£5,995) which includes Adaptive Air Suspension, Burmester Sound, sunroof and parking package, Winter Package (£1,750) with heated windscreen, auxiliary heating and heater remote, Night Package (£1,700) with black detailing and Rear Seat Entertainment (£2,995) with a pair of 10″ screens, TV tuner and media player.
