Here’s our best look yet at the new Mercedes-Benz G Class

The iconic Mercedes-Benz G Class off-roader will make its bow at the Detroit Auto Show later this month.

However, it looks like we won’t have to wait until January 15 to get a good look at the boxy 4×4’s 2019 iteration.

Chinese site AutoHome (via Motor1) has somehow nabbed some grainy official images of the car, showing us the exterior for the first time.

G Class 2019

As you can see, the new G Class keeps its retro shape with minimal changes, which is likely to please fans of the near-40-year-old series.

We already know from last month’s official teaser that the 2019 G Class will have a much roomier interior with some modernised internal tech.

It’s the first G Class to have a moonroof, while there’s an optional 12.3-inch CarPlay/Android Auto-enabled touchscreen.

That feature has already made its way into the S-Class and E-Class vehicles and will be joined by a 16-speaker surround sound powered by Burmester.

G Series

For taller drivers there’s 1.5-inches of extra legroom and 2.7-inches of additional elbow space. There’s even massaging leather seats. For rear-seat passengers there’s a whopping 6-inches of additional leg room.
