<p>Trust is good, control is better. The new axle architecture ensures that this is the case. Demanding terrain calls for high ground clearance and outstanding traction. Both are assured thanks to the precise independent front suspension and the robustness of the rigid axle at the rear. This design enables the permanent all-wheel drive to deliver its full power and manoeuvre the G through the terrain with purpose. With its high links, the new independent suspension provides maximum ground clearance. On the road, too, the new axle architecture delivers tangibly enhanced performance, making the new G-Class an impressive proposition with its better controllability and more precise wheel location. Furthermore, the off-roader is lighter, which further improves its handling.</p>
