Merc's old-school offroader will get a new look, and a new cabin, at Geneva
5 February 2007

The enduring Mercedes-Benz G-class is set to receive yet another facelift, 28 years after it was launched. Among the changes planned for the heavy duty off-roader, now sold as a high end luxury vehicle, is a subtle exterior makeover that includes LED tail lamps. Inside there’s reworked interior with a new centre console taken from the outgoing C-class and four-spoke steering wheel from the CLS. The facelift follows the introduction of G320 CDI and G500 models late last year, which were fitted with Mercedes-Benz’s seven speed automatic gearbox. The new G-class will be at the Geneva motor show next month.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
