Mercedes’s NEW G-Class Looks More Like A Facelift
Think about it….if it still sells and sells well, why alter it. This is why the NEW 2018 G-Class looks more like a facelift than a full model change. The only major visual changes on the outside compared with the current model are in the front and rear fascia’s. Up front, the headlights are larger and now have the accent lights integrated in the main lamps, rather than tacked on underneath. The panels the headlights sit in also look to be angled more to the sides, lending an ever so slightly sleeker appearance.
At the back, the hatch has been cleaned up with a third brake light that’s now a part of the hatch instead of attached behind the rear window, and the rear wiper appears to have been hidden behind the spare tire. The taillights have been updated, too, and have some accompanying bodywork to make them look like a part of the design rather than a necessary afterthought.
Other than those changes, the rest of the G-Class looks as old and primitive as ever, which should be a good thing for fans of the model. The doors still have exposed hinges; the windshield is still quite flat.
