The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has appeared on sale, which is driven by a 258-horsepower 2.0-liter gasoline engine.

The novelty is focused on the Chinese car market and will be the least productive and cheapest in the line. The German company decided to expand the G-Class engine range in China due to the peculiarities of local legislation: now the standard G-Class is not subject to luxury tax.

The modification with a 4-cylinder unit acquired the name G 350 – the same index has a “global” SUV, which has a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine under the hood. He, in turn, is not offered to the PRC.

Model G-Class with 2.0-liter turbocharged M264 engine producing 258 hp. (370 Nm), can accelerate to the first 100 kph in 8 seconds. The engine works in conjunction with a 9-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive with three differential locks.

The standard G-Class has external differences from the 8-cylinder variant, such as the presence of the G 350 badge on the fifth door and the absence of V8 emblems on the front fenders. In terms of equipment, the G 350 variation repeats the G 500: the new product has an infotainment complex MBUX, acoustics with 16 speakers, multicontour seats with heating, ventilation and massage, a set of active safety systems and much more.

With the release of the 2.0-liter version, the new G-Class has dropped by nearly 200,000 yuan, starting at 1,429,800 yuan.

In addition, it was recently noted that the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class was spotted without camouflage. It should be emphasized that the novelty of the German car manufacturer should debut next year. There is no information about the cost of the new model yet.
