Anyone looking for an off-road vehicle that is the best in its class and offers a build quality that no one can match, then the Mercedes G-Class is for you. There's nothing that can really compare with the G-Class for offroading and with its distinctive styling, this is an impressive handbuilt vehicle that has a lot to offer. However, because its original design dates from 1979, what people gain in off-road abilities they perhaps lose in comfort levels when on the road.
There's a choice of two engines, the G350 CDI diesel which will return around 25mpg whereas the G63 AMG will return around 21mpg. Of the two, the AMG version has incredible performance and will reach 0 to 62 mph in just 5.5 seconds. There was a break when Mercedes stopped selling the G-Class in the UK but in 2010 it revamped the vehicle and brought it back with its classic design and with some of the firm's latest technology. However, with such great off-road performance comes a price to pay and that is that the chassis and suspension are an old design and have a soft setting which means that it can be a bouncy ride on the road, with some body roll in tight corners.
Having said that, there's an excellent automatic gearbox which makes the G-Class fun to drive in towns and on motorways, though the vehicle's design means that the wind noise can be intrusive at speed. There's also lots of space on board for adults and luggage, the boot is simply huge. In addition, because the G-Class is handbuilt it feels like a solid piece of workmanship which will last for many years, or hundreds of thousands of miles without problem.
Why not have a look at the G-Class on the official Mercedes-Benz UK company web site and get the latest news about the G-Class in the UK at The UK Mercedes-Benz Owners' Club. You may also like to see what they're saying about it on the Top Gear web site.
