    Re: G500 Test ride

    For some reason the ancient looking G takes the wild colours very well.

    Re: G500 Test ride

    Funny most G are black with a few white and silver ones. Strange choice of color for a car who screams "look at me".

    I don't think the G screams at all. to the average person im sure the first thought isn't "look it's that classic expensive mercedes truck", but rather "wow thats an old looking mercedes, do they still make that?"

    @BiTurbo - thanks for the Avatar change buddy. Loved that video and getting goosebumps to want one of those cars. smiley

    Regarding color - if we get one, the test car color grey/black will be the one. I love those black fenders/roof on the car.

    Good choice for Germany. We saw the yellow one at a local dealership recently and while it really looked better than expected (actually pretty amazing), this color on a G class would certainly provoke certain people over here to do something bad to your car. Not a good idea!

    Re: G500 Test ride

    and they just re-released the g class professional.

    guess this puts aside any rumours as to any major changes happening to the g in the foreseeable future.

    Re: G500 Test ride

    Wish they wouldn't sell so well so that they'd update it and I could get one. Car is ancient and not worth the price tag.


    Re: G500 Test ride

    Well, I know three G class owners and interestingly they all adore the fact that G class is so raw and massive. Its funny to hear  people saying they feel very safe in that car, no matter if other modern cars have much more advanced safety systems installed.

    I assume MB designers & engineers are aware of that, and if they "soften up" G class it will be like any other SUVs on market.

     Most G class buyers are pretty wealthy people, so they all have super luxurious cars with all goodies you can imagine, yet most of them like to drive G class. I think that is one of the reasons why G class is so expensive even used, owners just wont give them for cheap money.

    Re: G500 Test ride

    Owners like them for what they represent: a total waste of money, they just scream "look I just threw a whole bunch of funny money at a pretty bad but good looking car because I can".


    Re: G500 Test ride

    Actually, average drivers are majority, so if you try to explain average G class driver that his car is bad ie. "not dynamic with very bed suspension" he will laugh at you.  So, for most owners, G class is pretty amazing & capable car that looks absolutely badass.

    Re: G500 Test ride

    The G has capabilities and equipment that SUV's just do not have. If you need those its a great truck.


    Re: G500 Test ride

    How many G goes off road? Where I live, zero %, they are all owned by soccer moms...


    Re: G500 Test ride

    G class became lifestyle vehicle long time ago, but I agree with Jim - G still have incredible off-road "capabilities".

    In Germany, soccer moms usually drive Cayenne (and Macan... Smiley).

    This is who drives the G class in Germany (or at least in Munich)...real men. Smiley

    Re: G500 Test ride

    personally what attracted me to the G is its retro appeal. most owners of g`s certainly do not use them as long distance cruisers. does it make sense ? probably not. but the is a gt3rs the perfect commute ? neither.

    its bold and it is different. look at vintage car fans. does it make sense ? probably not. are these cars fun ? hell, yes.
