Mercedes-Benz G-Class review

The G Wagen, the three-decade old off-roading has been given a new lease of thanks to Mercedes-Benz World, is importing updated examples of classic G-class into the UK. in right-hand drive and with a of diesel engines for the first you can now have one of these rugged, five-seat hand-built Gelaendewagen on your driveway.

If the 207bhp V6 isn#039;t enough, there#039;s a AMG model

Mercedes-Benz should be applauded for the of its update to the G-class: this gets M-B’s seven-speed ’box, electro-hydraulic power even, and returns an acceptable a two and a half tonne off-road 25mpg and 295g/km of CO2 on the combined You get a full Comand sat-nav as standard as well as heated and even ISOFIX child anchorages, while rear DVD a heated steering wheel and a TV are all waiting on the options list.

And yet the driving experience remains irredeemably old tech. Optional alloy wheels with winter tyres combine the G-class’s rough and ready link and panhard rod” for an alarmingly choppy ride on urban roads. Performance is as as you’d ever want the G-class’s approximation of body and lack of steering precision, a 0-62mph time of 9.1sec and a top speed.

And this is only the 207bhp, ft version – there’s also a 516lb ft 5.5-litre V8 AMG model which manages 0-62mph in and goes on to what would be a terrifying 130mph top speed.

But whichever version you choose is a car you’d only ever slowly, particularly over bumps and dips, for fear of thrown out of your seat. And Mercedes’ electro-hydraulic power doesn’t seem to be powerful for the G-class: the car’s helm is now heavy and slow to self-centre.

of which would matter if you were buying the G-class for its off-road credentials. This car forge 600mm of standing – more than a Land Defender – and has approach and departure to humble a Toyota Land There are three separate locks, too, for peerless in slippery conditions, and a low-range case for the seven-speed ’box.

Add to all that the incredible reputation the G-class has in 4×4 circles for reliability and robustness, and if you regularly off the beaten track, you might forgive the car its ‘characterful’ on-road and handling.

But whatever you do, don’t buy the G-class you think it’s a luxury certain commercial vehicles are more refined and comfortable. a Range Rover is just the most comfortable road car you can we would rate a G-class as about the least comfortable.

As a go-anywhere off-roader – now with creature comforts – the G-class has a for those who can afford the premium. certainly got character to burn and a real sense of occasion. But as an road car, it’s antiquated and compromised.
