Iconic elements today, as then, fulfil very specific functions and give the G-Class its unique look. They can also be found in the new G-Class: the distinctive door handle and the characteristic locking sound, the robust exterior protective strip, the exposed spare wheel on the rear-end door and the striking turn signal lamps. Those who get into the G-Class can find design elements of the exterior again. Such as the shape of the round headlights, mirrored in the side air vents. Or the design of the iconic turn signal lamps that can be found in the speakers. Typical for the G-Class are the grab handle in front of the front passenger or the switch for the differential locks positioned in the field of vision and emphasised in chrome. Both have been meticulously optimised and are maintained as defining elements.
