Mercedes-Benz unveils the much larger and redesigned interior of the upcoming new 2019 Mercedes G-Wagon. The G-Class will remain Mercedes’ most off-road worthy SUVs, but the interior now offers more passenger volume and a more premium feel.
The characteristic horizontal grab handle on the passenger side and the three differential lockers/switches in the center of the dashboard remind of G-Wagon’s tough off-road vehicle beginnings and nearly 40 years of history. Many other aspects of the interior draw lineage to other modern Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, such as the E-Class and the S-Class. Take a look at the gauges, button, infotainment screen and controls.
How much bigger is the new G-Wagon? Here are the specs provided by Mercedes.
|Difference New vs Old|
|Legroom – front||+ 1.5 in (38 mm)|
|Legroom – rear||+ 5.9 in (150 mm)|
|Shoulder width – front||+ 1.5 in (38 mm)|
|Shoulder width – rear||+ 1.1 in (27 mm)|
|Elbow room – front||+ 2.7 in (68 mm)|
|Elbow room – rear||+ 2.2 in (56 mm)|
A whopping 5.9 inches of additional rear legroom?! Judging by these numbers, the new G-Wagon should be longer and wider than the current one.
Although, we do not yet know what the exterior of the next G-Wagon will look like, you can bet it will not stray too far from it’s boxy military-grade character. The interior images show large geometric shapes of the windows and body lines.
