The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an ancient off-roader with modern mechanicals, a luxurious interior, and astronomical pricing. It makes almost no sense, which is why people seem to gravitate toward it. The 2016 Tesla Model X is unique, the sole all-electric SUV, even if its interior flexibility isn't what some buyers may expect from a utility vehicle.
