Mercedes-Benz G-Class (2010 onwards) Review

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an old styled type of vehicle that has kept its traditions and has upgraded the car in a graceful manner.

We review the model from 2010 onwards in this article today.

Performance

The best choice is the G350 CDI, which offers a brilliant V6 3.0 turbo diesel engine. This is able to reach 0-62 MPH in 9.9 seconds, quite a respectable time for a car within this particular category.

The AMG variant will come with a 6.2 V8 Kompressor engine, a tremendously powerful engine that will be able to produce over 500 BHP.

Despite the car’s great weight which amounts to two and a half tonnes and great bulk, it can zip off to 62 MPH from a standstill in just 5.5 seconds. It’s reported top speed is 130 MPH.

As you can tell just by looking at the car, it has great off road abilities. The 4×4 has solid mechanical engineering to soak up any uncomfortable road surfaces. Many won’t even feel some bumps which many usually send great amounts of uncomfortable tremor in typical SUV’s.

Interior

Inside you’ll get the latest Command Navigation system which sits neatly within the dashboard. There are typical elements of Mercedes-Benz luxury inside the cabin. This includes wooden trimmings along the steering wheel and leather seats.

Safety

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class offers brilliant economy and safety credentials.

In such a large and powerful car, the element of safety will be deemed very important. Features such as tyre pressure warnings, ESP, ABS and Brake assist keeps everyone as safe as possible.

The car’s metal frame is so strong that it offers a great amount of protection itself.

Price

The price for a new Mercedes-Benz G Class will be between £79,975 – £114,975.

Key Rivals

The for the G-Class are the main rivals Range Rover, Land Rover Defender and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Conclusion

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an old school type of army vehicle that contains plenty of luxury. The reasoning behind why it is so rare to see on our roads is that it is a type of specialist vehicle that commands a huge price tag.
