The sensation of opening – and shutting – the door on a Mercedes G-Class is an impressive experience, unique in the automotive realm.
There’s a heft to the door, just as there is with every other Mercedes product, but the actuation of the thumb button and hauling on a handle that feels as if it’s honed from granite conveys a sense of timeless precision and robust over-engineering not typically found in modern machinery. It’s not gentle, it’s not dainty. There’s no electronic assistance, and closing the door requires a proper slam.
It’s an exceptionally mechanical sensation, and that’s important because being mechanical in an increasingly digital age is what truly sets the G-Class – even this new one – apart from its competitors.
The new G 550 and AMG G 63 are, of course, loaded up with contemporary digital wizardry, like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and even active parking assistance, and the digitally-adjustable drive modes and suspension are particularly impressive in their operation on the G 63.
