Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV (2018 - )

You might struggle to tell the difference between the latest Mercedes G-Class and its predecessor – despite being heavily revamped, this latest version still looks almost identical to those which came before it. But as the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – and as a result, the latest G-Class offers the same style, presence, and the sheer likeability that made the model an icon in the first place.

Our expert review

Ah. Well, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed about the G-Class. It’s eye-wateringly expensive to buy – starting prices for the G63 are upwards of £140k – and most buyers will blow many more thousands on optional extras to make their car their own. Even the entry-level G350d will likely cost you just shy of £100k, and adding a few options will easily take you over that figure.

Resale values are pretty strong, though, so at least your investment will be reasonably well protected. Insurance costs will also be astronomical, as will bills for tax and tyres. And fuel economy? Well, it’s predictably comical even on the diesel, thanks to considerable weight and that bluff, non-aerodynamic front end. And if you make the most of the muscle on offer in the AMG, you’ll get nowhere near it’s already-low official fuel economy figure in the real world. However, if you have sufficient funds to even consider buying a G-Wagon, that’s unlikely to deter you.
