  • Mercedes-Benz G 350d costs Rs 70 lakhs less than the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63.

  • The iconic G-Class SUV, G 350d is the first non-AMG version of the G-Class SUV in India.

  • The Mercedes-Benz G 350d gets its power from a 3.0L diesel engine capable of delivering 286hp.

Mercedes-Benz had launched its hardcore SUV AMG G63 last year at Rs 2.19 Crores. Now, the company has widened its range by launching the first non-AMG version of the G-Class SUV, the Mercedes-Benz G 350d at Rs 1.50 Crores. It makes it cheaper by nearly Rs 70 lakhs.

The Mercedes-Benz G 350d features a 286hp 3.0L diesel engine that delivers 600Nm of torque. At the same time, the Mercedes-Benz AMG G63 comes with a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 petrol engine capable of producing 585hp power.

The 6-cylinder diesel engine on the Mercedes-Benz G 350d is the same that comes on the Mercedes S 350d. This BSVI-compliant engine is connected to a 4WD through a 9-speed automatic transmission system. Compared to the AMG engine, the engine on the G 350d is inferior but can still race to 100kmph within 7.4 seconds.

The electromechanical steering coupled with a double-wishbone suspension for the front wheels and a rigid axle setup for the rear makes it a robust SUV. This SUV frame gets three different locking differentials, a high ground clearance of 241mm, low-range gearing, and a water wading capacity of 700mm.

The G 350d betters the G 63’s ramp breakover, approach, and departure angles at 25.70, 30.90, and 29.90, respectively.

Though it retains the upright G-Wagen’s butch design, it displays a toned-down approach to the styling aspect when compared to the G63. Therefore, it has to manage with 20-inch alloy wheels and a simple front fascia instead of the ‘Panamericana’ grille. 

The Mercedes G 350d interior feature a couple of 12.3-inch screens for the infotainment system and instrument cluster. Other attractive features include a multi-function steering wheel, leather upholstery, push-button start, powered front seats, cruise control, auto LED headlights and wipers, ambient lighting, and three-zone climate control. 

On the safety front, the SUV comes with ABS, EBD, ESC, brake-assist, hill-start assist, traction control, and eight airbags. 

Mercedes-Benz has used the CBU route to introduce the vehicle in India. It enables them to take advantage of the recent regulations allowing OEMs to import up to 2500 units annually without homologating in India. 

Mercedes-Benz G 350d competes with Toyota Land Cruiser LC200 and Range Rover Sport in India.
