Furthermore, the AMGs and the G500 vehicles are outrageously tall and haven’t been approved for import in US yet. The electronically assisted power steering feels quite heavy while the slightly-off-road Pirelli Scorpions do nothing to prevent the granular steering feel. Steering the G550 is quite precise but somewhat sluggish but it is expected if you look at the size of this SUV.
The G-Class is quite different from the other Mercedes crossovers and it demands a bit of reorientation from driving a car. However, considering the off-road tires and suspension, the G550 doesn’t appear too harsh on the roads.
There is a newly added optional adjustable suspension as well. Other new features in the 2016 facelift include a new instrument cluster which features cleaner graphics in the dials and also a new lower front fascia. There is also a central air intake which replaces the fog lamps and also under-guard and rounded corners. At the same time, the fender side arches are also wider.
In other news, all Mercedes A-Class models will come with Apple CarPlay, satellite navigation, blind spot warning, keyless start and also a rear camera as standard issue.
Stay tuned for more updates on 2016 Mercedes Benz!
