Face-Lifted Mercedes-Benz G-Class Highlights Creature Comforts

STUTTGART, Germany — You'll have to squint to see the external differences between the old Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the face-lifted version that was unveiled on Thursday. The only discernible change on the outside is redesigned LED-look taillights. The new version rolls out in Europe in mid-April.

Mercedes-Benz said its classic workhorse continues to be refined with such new standard items as heated front seats and a 12-volt power socket.

New options include a reverse-sensing camera, a tire-pressure monitoring system, a sports exhaust system for the long-wheelbase G500 station wagon model and new "cognac" leather upholstery.

Engines and body styles remain the same. The models range from the 224-horsepower G320 CDI to the 500-hp G55 AMG.
