Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may not look different than its predecessor, but its new suspension and interior bring it into the 21st century. Finally.

Pros
Classic look retained
Almost certainly better on road
Updated, roomier interior
Still brims with character

Cons
Is it too derivative?
Independent front suspension may dillute off-road ability
Only one off-road mode
Bound to be wildly expensive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class ranked #3 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Incredible off-road ability
Powerful engines
Top-notch cabin

Cons
A true gas guzzler
Sky-high price tag

By:

Fully redesigned for 2019.Bigger and better driving than before.Part of the second G-Class generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Impressive off-road abilities
Good on-road behavior
Powerful V8 engine
Refined interior

Cons
Expensive, even for a luxury SUV
Last-generation infotainment system

By: 
edmunds.com

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
