Both the G350 CDI and the G55 AMG will feature a wealth of standard equipment including: automatic climate control; automatic transmission, with high and low gear ratios; Bi-Xenon headlamps, heated seats with memory, leather upholstery (including the dashboard) as well as Comand, a reverse parking aid and a Harman Kardon Logic 7 Sound system.

As well as the standard equipment that features on many Mercedes-Benz road cars, constant innovation in the G-Class range offers high-performance driving dynamics, but, also supreme off road ability. ESP and 4ETS both ensure maximum traction, handling and stability on any terrain and the 100 per cent locking differentials, permanent all-wheel drive and off-road ratios prove their worth off the beaten track.

There will also be a commercial G300 CDI Professional, meant for tough working conditions in hard-to-reach locations. It will feature equipment levels for it to carry out its labours in a reliable, go-anywhere package. This entry model to the G-Class range will be available from £57,975 OTR. The G350 CDI will be available from £79,975 and the G55 AMG Kompressor will cost £114,975 OTR.
