I liked the writing and review of the G on this review:

Particularly this bit:

When you hit the twisty bits the G-Class was never going to suddenly become a sportscar – let me remind you that it weights two-and-a-half tonnes and is two metres tall – but the new version now handles in ways you would expect it to. The steering is light and numb, but reasonably precise, and there’s a lot of roll but the key is that it can all now be predicted. If you throw the car into a corner too fast it will understeer – you know it’s coming and it does. With the old car you could never quite be sure at what period it would attack. It was like being in a cage with a bear that you'd been informed was going to be poked with a stick at some point, whereas in this version the bear is still there but you are holding the stick.
