6/10
Overall verdict
Crazy, and that's why we like it, but struggle to recommend it
 

For: 

Will almost certainly outlast mankind, very cool

Against: 

Old, incredibly expensive and not particularly green, fast or comfortable

Overview

What is it?

Mercedes hasn’t facelifted the G for a while. It’s so old, nobody’s quite sure how many facelifts it’s had: like the Land Rover Defender, this is a bygone era 4x4 designed when SUVs were built to go off-road. And indeed it does that rather well.
