Mercedes-Benz SUV gets new interiors
Dubai, July 2, 2009
To coincide with its 30th birthday, Mercedes-Benz’s legendary G-Class now benefits from additional features that enhance the comfort and exclusivity of the interior.
“Instead of modernising the visual appeal of the striking design icon those in charge have left its indestructible, hallmark traits untouched since 1979,” said Frank Bernthaler, director, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Middle East & Levant.
“At the same time, the consistent effort which Mercedes-Benz has put into the evolution of the "G" has helped safeguard its leading position.”
The "G" specialists have focused their attention on the interior and developed new seats. The ergonomically optimised front seats improve both comfort and lateral support, helping further bolster driver-fitness safety. The new design also modernises the rear seat bench, with modifications that echo the styling of the driver's and front passenger's seat.
"G" customers can choose between black or grey fabric upholstery and leather appointments either in black, grey or chestnut. Further added comfort comes courtesy of the new optional climatised multicontour seats.
The line-up also includes exquisite designo leather upholstery in classic red or black as well as designo wood trim in black piano lacquer. Another highlight, available in early 2010, comes in the shape of designo stone trim in Labrador blue pearl.
Standard specification will include an Aux-in socket in the glove compartment and the familiar designer ignition key. As an option, indirect ambient interior lighting, a leather-trimmed dashboard, an extensive Chrome package as well as a media interface to connect an iPod, USB or Aux devices add to the feel-good factor on board.
New paintwork options are also available: "palladium silver metallic" or the "designo platinum magno" matt finish, which show off the striking body design of the "G" to particularly good effect, supplement the line-up for 2009.
At the rear, the new models make a distinctive statement with a modified spare wheel cover with a three-dimensional Mercedes star. – TradeArabia News Service
