Only a G-Class can be better than a G-Class. This is the credo followed by the developers with the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6, and they are now stepping up a gear with the G500 4×4². The basic recipe for this overcomer of everything is simple: take the superior all-wheel-drive powertrain including portal axles from the 6×6 – take away one axle – and blend it all with a newly-developed variable chassis and the series-production G-Class body. A large pinch of V8 power with 310 kW (422 hp), a set of 22-inch 325/55 R 22-sized wheels, carbon-fibre body parts and then just gourmet ingredients from the seductive designo Exclusive range for the interior – and the 5-star menu for all off-road enthusiasts is ready.
The exterior of the GT Line evolves the design language of the cee’d GT, with ice-cube LED daytime running lights and deeper bumpers surrounding Kia’s hallmark ‘tiger-nose’ grille.

All GT Line models are fitted as standard with the GT model’s eye-catching side sill mouldings and rear LED light units, and a stylish new 17-inch alloy wheel design.
Vauxhall Motors was founded in 1857 when a manufacturer of pumps and marine engines decided to start producing cars. Since it was founded, the brand has become associated with motorsports, with its cars competing in the British Touring Car Championship and a number of rallying competitions. Today, Vauxhall is one of the UK’s main motor manufacturers, with an increasing range of cars, vans and commercial vehicles which are a far cry from the limousines and open tourers that they produced in the early days.
