    Rumorpile: Smaller G-Class In The Cards?

    Car is reporting that Mercedes-Benz is planning a smaller version of the venerable G-Class to compete with the replacement for the Land Rover Defender.

    Internally nicknamed ‘mini-G’, the vehicle will be based on the MFA platform of the new Mercedes A-class. No, the 'mini-G' isn't the A-Class based crossover that we have been reporting about for the past few months or so, this happens to be an addition.

    Styling will draw heavily from the G-Class with a tall, upright stance and almost horizontal roof. Powertrains will come from the A- and B-Class, and include gas and diesel engines. There will be a two-wheel drive and a four-wheel drive models.

    The model hasn't been approved by Mercedes at the moment. If it was to be approved, Car says the earliest we could see it is in 2015.
