I wasn't previously aware, but the Phantom is HUGE!

:lol:

The beige one isn't even necessarily any older. AFAIK they are (or were) doing a utilitarian version alongside the luxury one.

I was next to one of the luxury ones in traffic recently and noticed how close the driver was to the windshield and door.
The G Professional has been discontinued because the engine couldn't pass Euro 6. Prices for used ones have already jumped slightly.

It really is small inside but it isn't that big to begin with. I had the chance to drive one in the army and it was quite fun. Worlds better than Defenders...

Great examples won't depreciate much. I wouldn't mind having the tax dodging C-license truck version.

You'd think it wouldn't be a big deal for Mercedes to drop another engine in there to make it euro 6 compliant, like the 250 CDI version of the 2.1 liter 4-pot.

Looks like the G350 BlueTEC is still available despite it's also an OM642 with Euro 5. :dunno:

That's not really a fair comparison is it... this is playing with perspectives. Although the current Range is huge.
