Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With a claimed top speed of 187 mph, Bentley boasts that the Bentayga is the fastest SUV in the world. The claim is made possible by a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W-12 that makes a mighty 600 hp; an eight-speed automatic drives all four wheels. A 542-hp 4.0-liter V-8 is also available. The interior can be configured to seat four or five, and only the finest leather will cosset those lucky posteriors. Options include 22-inch wheels, rear-entertainment tablets, and a 1950-watt, 20 speaker audio system.

Pros
V-8 burble,
tidier handling,
less expensive yet still decadent.

Cons
Still heavy,
V-8 doesn’t enhance its looks,
cool tech costs extra.

Cons
Another level of expensive

Sure, crossovers make more sense as luxury vehicles. But that's not why you want a 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class in your garage.The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a soldier in a business suit.

Pros
Classic authenticity
That “clunk” the doors make when they close
Wild off-road ability from the G550 4x4²
Faster than it ever should be

Cons
Or you could buy seven Jeep Wranglers, one for every weekday
Light on safety tech
G550 4x4² presents many urban challenges
New 2019 just around the corner

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class remains mostly unchanged for 2018. It will be fully redesigned for the 2019 model year. To commemorate the end of a very long production run, a few special-edition models be available and are limited to cosmetic touches inside and out.

Iconic design is instantly recognizable
Outstanding forward visibility
Unusually quiet when on the road
Lots of cosmetic customization potential

Compromised off-road ability
Poor interior packaging leaves little useful space
