Suzuki Jimny vs Mercedes Benz G Class Comparison

Suzuki Jimny and the Mercedes Benz G-Class are both good off-roaders but the Mercedes Benz G Class seems to look more luxurious than Suzuki Jimny. And yet, there are many ways in which these cars are almost identical, not the least of which being a full-frame manufactured crowned with a boxy body that’s simultaneously adorable and attractive. Comparing the 2 seems like an act of futility – the big; 6-figure G-Class is packed with technology and gifted with prolific power, whereas the Jimny is like an outdated record player but quite careful, both in terms of price and power.
