If you’ve flicked through a celebrity magazine or been to central London recently, you’re probably familiar with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. This square-sided SUV might be popular with the rich and famous, but it was initially developed as a military vehicle back in the 1970s.

Despite a number of updates to the engine, gearbox and interior, the G-Class’s looks and character hasn’t really changed a great deal since then. This is very much an old-school SUV with live axles front and rear, a separate chassis and a high centre of gravity. Think of it as a posh Land Rover Defender and you’re not a million miles away.

It’s certainly a lot pricier than your average 4x4, with basic models costing around the same as a mid-spec Range Rover or a heavily optioned Audi SQ7. If it still appeals, then read on over the next few pages for our in-depth review.
