    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    AP911:

    Well the UAE might have the largest concentration of g wagons worldwide...... With the release of the latest g class everyone is trying to get rid of their older ones. 

    Yes 50k for ta 2015 and 16 G500 or G63 in excellent condition with less than 60,000 km  with warranty. The current economy does help as well as not too many people buying. 

    For the same price I have a model 3 on order, it's an easy choice indecision

    I want to take it offroad alot so that's why I prefer the 500 as it has better approach angles and can fit smaller than 19" wheels. The deep rumble on the 63 is out of this world. The 63 would also cost more for maintenance. 

    What's makes it a hard choice is that both cost almost the same due to the large number of 63s available for sale. 

    It's such a nice vehicle to drive and a keeper..... I got to say, newer cars excite me less so between this and the gt3 touring, I can't ask for much more .

    Super combination 


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    yes, GT3 and Gwagon a super combination.

    maybe a Conti GT for the dinner date outings as wives usually hate the above. smiley

    Mine only hates the way I drive the GT3 yes..... Those latest ones are comfortable so no need for a Conti.

    My wife is a big fan of the G63. She triggered me to buy the G.Smiley. Whenever possible she want to drive just the G.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    My dealer called me and told me that from now on the G350 is ready to configure. Not sure if this is for interest to someone, but wanted to tell you ;)


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Thinking of ordering a G63 now that I hear that driving dynamics are vastly improved.  Anybody know whether the edition 1 is still available to order?

    The production for the next 13 months is sold out. The edition 1 is gone, too. Maybe you have luck in South Korea. 


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Thank you, Lars.  There is one used (less than 100km) edition 1 available here but not officially imported.  

    I guess I need to order one and just wait.

    Depends on dealerships maybe...my German dealer may be able to get one (at least this was the information a couple of weeks ago...saw one at the dealership and loved it but I cannot afford another car right now Smiley).

    Saw one on the road in London. Looks awkward


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Also saw the Rolls Royce SUV in Mayfair. Oh my, what a disaster

    Also saw the Rolls Royce SUV in Mayfair. Oh my, what a disaster 

    Yep, looks worse than I though, saw one recently in Austria, even had a chat with the owner (I was in my R8). 

    I'd prefer the Ghost to be honest but the ultimate SUV out there is still the Urus. Probably the reason why it sells so well. Also the new G class of course...

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    I like the spaciousness of the Cullinan but the tires look too narrow. Kinda wimpy looking from the front.  Also proportions are somewhat awkward.  

    Really wish Rolls Royce would produce a bit smaller SUVs in the size of Ghosts.  That would be just perfect.

     

    Regarding Urus, I though the Urus was more of an Audi than a Lamborghini when I saw the positioning of its engine.

    Hanging out in front of the front tires!  I haven't driven it so cannot comment on its handing characteristics, but I never liked the Audis with its ending hanging out in the front.

    Drive the Urus...amazing SUV, sound is also so nice but not annoying at all.

    Very color sensitive car though in my opinion. Looks great in yellow, not the best color for such a big SUV, especially in certain countries/regions.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Regarding luxury SUV's IMO the only one to have is the Bentley Bentayga..G63 is on is own league!

    The Bentayga isn't really that great looking Smiley, probably one of the reasons it doesn't seem to sell that well anymore. 

    Yes, the G63 is actually in it's own class, Mercedes did a good job, even with the new one.

    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    Agree...but for me luxury isn't sporty, so URUS isn't in this league, more Porsche competition...the other luxury SUV is the RR which isn't really nice to my eyes,


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    agree that Urus drives very well.

    if I can only have one car to do it all, it will be a Urus.  Second choice is Cayenne Turbo.

    I look for driving and handling with car buying.  Luxury is nice but not essential.

    The good and bad thing about the Bentayga is that it's easily mistaken for a Q7. Under the radar but also unremarkable.

    I agree. I am drawn to the G class because of its iconic status, just like 911.

    Almost bought a G55 long time ago but walked away after test driving it. It was like driving a truck.  New G seems vastly improved. 

     

    I also hear G63 S version and a hybrid G73 with 800hp.

    Does anybody know when those are coming?

     

     


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    The new G will cost a bomb in S Korea 


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    What is the price increase compared to the old one?  The outgoing G AMG model costs about USD$190k

    I also heard about the upcoming G53 with EQ electronic boost.  This is an interesting option.


    Re: 2018 Mercedes G-Class

    $190K for the G????? Nuts! It looks like box with four wheels. Doesn't look practical compared to other SUV's.

    Urus would be my first choice, my current E63 S AMG the second (I just parked my car in a parking lot covered with snow, just raised the air suspension and boom...love it). Perfect family cars as well. E63 is fast as hell, torque is phenomenal (one of my wife's best female friends got sick in the back, we had to take a...vomiting...break, Smiley it wasn't even the speed I was driving at or the curves, it was the acceleration feel...massive torque...amazing feel in your stomach Smiley Smiley).

    My wife says the same but it is a great SUV and great off-roader. Very practical, only the size could be an issue (parking).

    Well, maybe you underestimate the G63. I drive it in wintertimes almost in daily use. Very practical and with a clear view on all sides. The box design helps in parking lots perfectly. Really no problem here.

    In fairness the steering lock still belongs to a different era and makes parking more difficult than it should be.
