New Mercedes Benz to go into production January 2013

December 10, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Mercedes Benz GL-Class SUV 7-seater will go into production in January 2013, with prices starting from £59,465. Designed as a luxury four-wheel drive, it can carry up to seven people in comfort, meaning that it is a competitor along with the Range Rover and Audi Q7. There will be two models at the launch, the diesel Mercedes Benz GL-Class GL 350 BlueTEC AMG Sport and the GL 63 AMG petrol model.

Bigger and Better

The car itself is bigger and better than the GL- Class car in production at the moment. The length has increased by 21mm and the height by 10mm, making it look that little bit more impressive. It can go off road with locking differentials, airmatic suspension capable of lifting the car over minor obstacles and a low ratio gearbox. The CO2 emissions have been reduced by 14 per cent for the GL 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and the fuel consumption improving by 15 per cent. It is also very safe, as the designers have integrated the passive and active safety features. Offering three point seatbelts on all seven seats, and airbags in several places, including an option for the middle row of seats means that the driver and all the passengers are kept as safe as possible in case of an accident. The GL-Class has also taken pedestrian safety into major design consideration. The front section includes precisely defined ample crumple space between the body and the assemblies underneath. Along with the impact zones that are intended to yield, this design provides a high degree of protection both for pedestrians and cyclists.

Used Cars
