Mercedes-Benz Launches G 350 d SUV at ₹1.5 Crore

  • Oct 17, 2019

German luxury automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has launched the G 350 d sports utility vehicle (SUV) in India at an ex-showroom price of ₹1.5 crore. The G-class, until now, was only offered as the AMG G 63 model.

Introducing the car, managing director and chief executive officer of Mercedes-Benz India, Martin Schwenk, said that G-class vehicles have been unrivaled and unparalleled in the world. According to Schwenk, the G 350 d comes with unlimited customisation possibilities and has been positioned as a lifestyle car for aficionados, hunting for a highly personalised vehicle. The superb off-road capabilities of the G-class, he said, will offer an unmatched luxury SUV experience.

The G 350 d is approximately ₹69,000 cheaper than the AMG G 63 which commands an ex-showroom price of ₹2.19 crore. The car will be imported to India as a completely built-up unit (CBU).

The Mercedes-Benz G 350 d will be hauled by a 6-cylinder, 3.0-litre inline diesel motor which conforms to the upcoming BS-VI emission standard. The engine produces 282bhp and 600Nm peak torque. The motor is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission system with all-wheel -drive coming as standard.

The design of the Mercedes-Benz G 350 d is a bit different than the AMG G 63. The new model gets a pan-American grille instead of the triple slat grille in the latter. That aside, the G 350 d gets a revised front bumper. The car’s twin exhausts and smaller air intakes also differentiates it from the AMG G 63.

The cabin of the G 350 d is finished in dual-tone black and beige and looks similar to the AMG G 63. The car gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. There’s also a fully digital instrument cluster.

The Mercedes-Benz G 350 d has no direct rivals in India. It will face indirect competition from the Toyota Land Cruiser LC 200 and the Range Rover Sport.
