Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV India Launch On 14th February 2011 – Specifications Features & Price


Mercedes-Benz is doing exceptionally well in the Indian market and has launched a couple of new models of the existing cars during the past months which have not only attracted more sales figures but also succeeded in building a better relationship with the customers.

Recent models of cars like Mercedes C-class, Mercedes E-Class etc. are being adored across the country and have a unique road presence. The company’s profile in the Indian market has been good enough and offers a rich line-up for the sedan segment but for the SUV segment only Mercedes M-Class is there to go head on with extremely tough competitors like Audi Q7 and BMW X5.

Adding more glamour to its SUV line-up the company will launch Mercedes G-Class on 14th February. The car is probably the most rugged looking cross-over ever produced by the Automobile industry and even today carries the same military vehicle look which it had been carrying for the past three decades.


The military heritage of this unique SUV is appreciable and company is definitely glad launching it in India and we expect the car to succeed in its segment.
