The G-Class is an emotional purchase that fills the “I want” versus the “I need” ledger so if practical and sensible are at the top of your shopping list, then the G-Class is unlikely to be a fit. Differing from the rest of the Mercedes-Benz line up where luxury, refinement, comfort and handling are synonymous with the brand, the G-Class is rarely described using those terms. Built originally as a military vehicle capable of blazing trails, the suspension and underpinnings are utilitarian, not technologically advanced. It is a large vehicle that feels even larger because of its less than modern driving dynamics. But at the end of the day, none of this matters. The G-Class makes a statement in its unique styling and exclusivity. For those who can afford it, the G-Class stands apart from other luxury SUVs and attracts attention which keeps demand and retained values high.
