Driving Impressions

Although its a lot smaller than the Hummer H1, the G500 delivers a comparably unique driving experience. Its hard to believe that this SUV is only slightly taller than the M-Class because it conveys the impression of looming height, which is emphasized by its relatively short, narrow body.

Everything about the G500 seems bolt-upright, including the seating positions. Even though the SUVs height is largely an illusion, theres a tendency to keep the vehicles speed way down when rolling through curves and corners. Its operation is defiantly trucklike, emitting plenty of sound and acceleration with a degree of sluggishness. Not only does the G500 look ready to tackle the most demanding terrain, but it also feels ready for such action, which detracts from its prowess and pleasure on ordinary paved surfaces.
