Mercedes-Benz G-Class 2019 gets a moonroof and a much roomier interior

Mercedes-Benz has given us a look inside the forthcoming 2019 G-Class luxury SUV, ahead of its unveiling at the Detroit Auto Show next month.

While the company is expected to stick to the tried and true Jeep-like exterior design, it’s all change when it comes to the interior.

Buyers will have the option of a large 12.3-inch CarPlay/Android Auto-enabled touchscreen, which has already made an appearance within the S-Class and E-Class vehicles.

Taller drivers will be delighted to learn the off-roader delivers a lot more room, with 1.5-inches additional legroom in the front-seats as well as 2.7-inches of additional elbow space. Should you so desire, there are optional massaging leather seats (via Roadshow).

Things get even better for rear-seat passengers, with almost 6-inches more leg room and over an inch of additional shoulder space. The door openings are also larger.

There’s even reclining, heated seats for backseat passengers, adding to that sense of luxury only a Merc can supply, even if you’re relegaed to the second row.

Elsewhere, this will be the first G-Class model to include a moonroof. In terms of audio, there’s 16-speaker surround sound powered by Burmester, while there’s also a 590w amp available.

For the rest of the details we’re going to have to wait until Detroit, which starts it engine on January 13.
