The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz G-Class
For:Will almost certainly outlast mankind, very cool
Against:Old, incredibly expensive and not particularly green, fast or comfortable

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.
