10: Mercedes Benz G-Class Pricing
G-Wagon, as it is also commonly called, is a popular vehicle in Nigeria. Some might argue that it doesn’t have the sleekness and curves that should make it look beautiful. However, I suppose you could say that its beauty is in its price if you agree that “expensive” is sometimes synonymous with “beautiful”. Mercedes Benz G-Class is one that is commonly driven by the elite because of its expensiveness. As a result, it could be regarded as a show-off car.
In performance and luxury, Mercedes Benz G-Class is worth every pretty penny spent on it. Or what else would you expect from a vehicle as expensive as this:
Price Range: N70 million – N200 million
9: Range Rover Sport Pricing
Closely following the Mercedes is Range Rover Sport. Oh! Sweet mother of luxury! This is, like, the dream SUV for many Nigerians, and it’s quite understandable. Apart from the respect, you earn from owning a Range Rover Sport, the performance of the vehicle, coupled with the kind of luxury that only this vehicle can provide, make it a great purchase.
