Review

Objectively, there’s really no sensible reason to buy a G-Class. While it’s extraordinarily capable on rough terrain, there are better choices for on-road driving, and for considerably less money. Subjectively, though, it’s hard not to be drawn in by its old-school charms. So, while it doesn't get a particularly high What Car? star rating, we wouldn't dream of telling you not to buy one. We would, however, be a bit jealous.

Trim: AMG Line

The G350d comes only in AMG Line spec, which includes 20in alloy wheels, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control and front and rear heated seats. For an extra level of luxury, the optional Premium Pack adds the Burmester stereo we mentioned earlier, plus an electric panoramic roof, 360deg parking and the adaptive suspension, at extra cost.

Engine: G350d

Despite this huge SUV weighing at least two and a half tonnes, we’d argue the 350 diesel is as much engine as most will need. It offers plenty of power from low in the rev-range, so accelerating up to motorway speed is easy.
