Fresh Mercedes C-class facelift gets new tech and interior updates

Geneva Motor Show 2018: Mercedes-Benz confirms new C-Class

It comes with standard analogue instruments but can be ordered with digital instruments in combination with a 12.3-inch infotainment display.

Talking about the auto itself, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift features subtle changes to the exterior design.

"The new AMG G63 brings driving performance to the segment of unadulterated off-road vehicles in unexpected form", said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH". Despite its exterior appearance remaining mostly unchanged, interior and technology updates gave the boxy off-roader a new lease on its luxurious life.

The G63 uses the same 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine found in the G 500, but in this guise the V8 has been tuned to deliver 430kW/850Nm, up from 310kW/610Nm.

All 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models roll on a set of new-look 20-inch wheels.

The change also means the GT Coupe will feature a longitudinal transmission behind the engine in place of the transaxle setup deployed by the two-seat variants. And visually, there initially appears to be little different. To that end, it's fitted with an AMG-specific radiator grille, flared wheel arches, wheels in sizes up to 22-inches and, best of all, side-exit exhaust pipes.

The new generation G-Class will be headlined with the next iteration of Mercedes-AMG's G63. And with three locking differentials, and the ability to switch from low range to high range at speeds of up to 43mph, the vehicle is claimed to perform capably in rough terrain.

Mercedes has also launched a G500 model, powered by a 416bhp 4.0-litre petrol V8, but Carbuyer understands this will not be offered for sale in the UK.

According to Mercedes, the S560 can hit 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds while the S650 can make the same sprint in 4.6 ticks of a stopwatch.

Its top speed in standard guise is 137mph, but this can be increased to 149mph if the optional Driver's Package is specified. The electrified drivetrains are based around a new hybrid system. That can happen at speeds up to 44 miles per hour.

Underneath AMG has redesigned the independent double-wishbone front suspension and the rigid rear axle.

A HIGH performance derivative of the rugged Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV has been announced giving the 2.5-tonne 4x4 supercar-like credentials. There are five on-road driving modes, and three off-road modes (Sand, Trail and Rocks).

Thanks to changes made to the basic G-Class' packaging the interior of the new G63 offers greater accommodation, including an added 150mm of rear legroom compared with its predecessor.
