Luxury SUVs have carved a niche for themselves, more so because of the luxury offered and not the SUV off-roading part, but you cannot ignore them any more.
Mercedes was one of the earliest car-makers to offer a soft-top SUV, but the production of the G Wagen was shut in 2013. The iconic G-Wagen served the military and the niche general public for nearly 4 decades before that.
So, does this highly competitive world have any space left for a convertible SUV? Yes, says Wolf-Dieter Kurz, VP of Sports Cars and SUVs at Mercedes.
He said “We had to stop the G-Wagen due to reasons owing to volumes and production”.
He specified they are looking at every opportunity and just need to find a market for it.
Convertibles take a lot of engineering to make the body stable and handle as good as a normal car, yet the fun factor is unmatched. This is another point which we are looking at said Kurz.
