What our Customers are saying about the Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Mohammed - I've had my second hand G Wagon for a year or so now, and it's an excellent everyday vehicle. It has the perfect features to keep children entertained as well when I go on long trips. Pros: Powerful presences and good build quality. Cons: Petrol gauge drops very quickly.
Akeel Jacob - Very fancy looking, drives firm and great. It's super fast and ideal for off roading, also makes amazing and aggressive sound and smooth gear changes. Pros: Fast, great looks and sounds like a wild animal. Cons: High price, not comfortable seating.
Klaus - When I head down to Hatta for the weekend with the family, there are no other cars in our mind to drive other than our pre owned 2014 G63 AMG. It looks great, sounds ferocious and has all the features we need. A fridge would be an added bonus. Pros: Powerful motor and great interior options. Cons: Not the best offroad.

About the Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Debuting in 1979 as a civilian vehicle, as before that, it was only intended for Military purposes. It was put into production as a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and from there it’s been loved ever since around the world. It was in intended to be replaced by the GL series, however, due to some rather cross individuals with lots of money to spare did not approve of this, Mercedes decided to keep the G-Class in production. Only three body styles have been readily available since launch; the iconic pickup, the rare convertible and the even rarer pick-up, of course, there are some modified ones out there that aren’t stock. When it comes to rival, only one immediately comes to mind: Range Rover. Maybe the defunct Hummer or Cadillac Escalade could be a “cheaper alternative.”
