Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
There’s no denying that the hand-built G-Class is expensive to buy, finance and run. The cheapest diesel version has a high five-digit price while the top-spec G63 Colour Edition will cost you the same as two Audi SQ7s.
The G350d comes with lots of equipment, including 20in alloy wheels, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control and front and rear heated seats. For an extra level of luxury, the Premium Pack adds the Burmester stereo, panoramic roof, 360deg parking and the adaptive suspension we mentioned earlier, at extra cost. The AMG G63 includes that package as standard, as well as distinctive AMG body styling.
