G-Wagon G55 AMG

Additional Info

  • The G55 allows for some body roll despite the stiff suspension, but nothing that the full-time 4-wheel-drive can’t sort out

If you know your cars and are willing to get this dirty, the G-Wagon will take you pretty much anywhere you fancy.

  • Comfort

    Owing to its hardcore off-road and military roots, the G-Wagon isn't like any Merc you'd encounter. Interiors are basic and upright and not overly spacious.

  • Performance

    Performance is a by-product of the AMG badge and this 2.2-tonne hulk is propelled by a 5.5-litre supercharged V8. It shoots off the blocks and to 100kph in 6.3 seconds.

  • Cool

    There a certain aura about the G-Wagon that no other SUV can recreate. It creates a sense of occasion that makes every drive purposeful almost.

  • Quality

    Mercedes Benz quality combined with bullet proof build is what you get with the G-Wagon.

  • Handling

    Ladder-on-frame design makes the G-Wagon lose out here. On road manners aren't the best, but who cares with a car that is so awesome off it.

  • Practicality

    Sorry, this isn't what you'd call a sensible buy. There's barely enough space for four and a reasonable boot for a couple of tents and sleeping bags.

  • Running costs

    Merc equals expensive services, AMG means you add a super to that. Plus you can expect a grand 3kpl efficiency.
