Mercedes-Benz G-Class review

Published: 07 Jan 2022


What should I be paying?

You’re not going to be buying a G for environmental reasons are you? So who cares that the combined economy suggests you’ll only be getting 21.4mpg, and even that turns out to be wildly optimistic – the best we achieved was 17.7mpg. 14.5mpg seems a realistic daily average. At least there’s a big 100-litre fuel reservoir to fall back on.

This is the G63, of course, which costs £143,305 in the UK. It’ll likely be a rare sight, not least because its sheer ostentation is only likely to appeal to a limited audience. Which is why it’s a shame we’re not getting the G500. It’s the sweeter car. Still powerful enough to hit 62mph in 5.9secs, but around £40,000 cheaper on the continent, and with a slightly calmer disposition that would likely find favour with the country set, give them an alternative to their Range Rovers.
