Ten Second

It’s said that will be the only thing to a nuclear conflagration. Whoever that clearly never a Mercedes G-Class. It’s a that neither time, fashion nor legislation can kill and now better than ever. be irrelevant to virtually everyone, but for merest fraction of a percentage of UK buyers, it’s the greatest car on


You might well it as the G-Wagen, that slab-sided more readily associated squaddies trailing in convoy autobahns, but the G-Class has come a way from its utilitarian origins. It was sold to the general public way in 1979 and as it ploughs unstoppably its fifth decade on sale, been treated to an extensive of updates. Don’t think means the G-Class has gone in its dotage. Although it’s no a stripped-back, rough and ready mud it’s still built the same adamantine materials. just that the market for cars has changed and the G-Class has to reflect a newer, more customer base. You can now spend serious coin on a G-Class and a privileged queue of people to do just that.

Driving Experience

On the face of it, a 544PS engine into a off-roader sounds a bad idea. No, that. It sounds an absolutely notion. The Mercedes G 63 AMG is that car and the flagship model in the G-Class for the UK at least. Those looking for an more powerful G-Class have to shop abroad for the G 65 My advice would be to stick the 63. It’s a great engine, 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 and it clouts the G 63 to in a blink over five and onto an electronically limited top of 130mph. Believe me, you wouldn’t to go faster, despite improvements to the suspension, stability control monster 375mm brakes up and the clever AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS automatic gearbox. The G 63 AMG might hog the but the G 350 BlueTEC long-wheelbase model its 2987cc diesel engine a touch more real-world This four-valve per cylinder has an output of 211PS at 3400rpm and has torque of 540Nm across an speed range of 1600 to Whichever version you buy, mountain of torque should be to drag you out of most sticky while the G-Class’ three controlled 100-percent differential ladder frame and rigid characteristics also underline its in rough off-road terrain.

Design and Build

The G-Class has one of faces that even its would find hard to Lantern-jawed doesn’t even it, but its sheer anti-fashion nature rather perversely, made it a chic item. Mercedes has the temptation to substitute straight for Bezier curves and the latest car the sort of aerodynamics last when whole warehouses swept away in the Boston Flood. The plus side of is that there’s a decent of space inside, especially if you opt for one of the wheelbase versions. The external have been kept subtle to preserve the classic and include LED daytime running and revised exterior mirrors for all variants. The AMG version also a characteristic AMG radiator grille double louvres, plus bumpers with large air Red brake calipers and 20-inch also help distinguish the G 63

Market and Model

Value. a tough one to address. When it in a virtual class of one, tough to make definitive on any car’s value proposition. The is certainly a car that’s quietly into something decidedly Take the latest interior for example. The instrument panel and console have been redesigned to include revised and trim elements which the interior of the car a more contemporary and feel. There’s now a TFT colour in the instrument cluster between the two dials. A further large screen in the centre console is of the COMAND Online system and a DVD changer and the COMAND Controller, are standard on all G-Class models. infotainment system offers, other features, a navigation with special additional functions, the LINGUATRONIC voice-operated system and Bluetooth wireless Don’t fret. It hasn’t all Maybach though. G-Class will appreciate that design cues have retained to preserve the essential of the car. It thus retains the handle on the front-passenger side, the for the three differential locks clearly aligned within the field of vision and highlighted in trim — and the redesigned lever in the lower section of the console. There are high options on offer as well, as DISTRONIC PLUS radar control, Blind Spot and the parking aid PARKTRONIC with camera. The ESP system has been revised and now includes Trailer Assist and a HOLD function. If all isn’t enough, customers can personalise their G-Class fitments from the exclusive range.

Cost of Ownership

Given the G-Class tends to be purchased by of rather hefty net worth, the day to day costs aren’t hugely to the buying decision. That Mercedes is a company that to measure itself by some criteria and inefficiency is seen in circles as an example of engineering It’s not something that good on the corporate account. To end, Mercedes has worked at the efficiency of the G-Class range the board. Even the monster G 63 AMG gets 20.4mpg, up markedly on the the less powerful G55 Kompressor car returned. Emissions are also with the G 63’s 322g/km 50g per click off the old car’s showing. still not what you’d to see Al Gore tooling about in The G350 BlueTEC fares a better but maybe not by as much as imagine. Sacrificing 333bhp to the G 63 AMG you just 5.1 more miles per and pares 27g/km off the flagship emissions figure.

Judging the Mercedes-Benz G-Class by the criteria just doesn’t The normal rules resolutely apply. It’s an oddity but a wonderful one and long may it continue. the Land Rover Defender has become a rather ancient-feeling the G-Class has moved with the whilst maintaining its essential It’s unashamedly expensive and you examine the actual prices cars leave dealers it’s hard to justify. not to even try. With sales mopped up by the Middle Russia, China and the US, the UK is very a minority interest market, but doesn’t mean the G-Class attract interest. The G350 model would appear to be the relevant to our requirements but if you’re to be silly, go the whole hog and stretch to the G 63 It’s something strange and and the motoring world is better for its
