Ashley Tisdale seen with her Mercedes-Benz G55 sports utility vehicle. The actress had said in a 2006 Seventeen interview that her dream car was a "silver Range Rover." Ashley has been seen driving another SUV from the Mercedes-Benz G-class series: the G500. Some other female celebrities who own this monstrous and expensive wagon:
Back when she was still pregnant, Hilary Duff spotted with her Mercedes-Benz G55. Hilary got her SUV as a gift from husband Mike Comrie, telling People in 2007: "I was planning on getting a big car and I drive a big car anyway, and I was just like, 'You know maybe I like the G-Wagen,' and then I was like, 'No, maybe I like the [Porsche] Cayenne....I opened the garage, and I was just like shocked, just standing there." Before her, with a big red bow on top, was a Mercedes-Benz G-class SUV priced at $100,000.
The Mercedes-Benz G Class is also called the Gelandewagen or G-Wagen; it's fuel economy is as low as 11 mpg in the city and 13 mpg on the highway. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy ranks it in the list of 12 least energy-efficient autos. The reason why female celebrities like this vehicle is its exclusivity; not too many people can afford to buy it or afford to use it. Another reason is that these girls probably feel safer in a big car, seeing as so many of them are such bad drivers! And a third reason is that female celebrities with their entourage of friends, dogs, and assistants, have a craving for spacious SUVs.
Emma Roberts with her Mercedes-Benz G500. In 2009 she got into an accident with her big SUV just after getting her driver's license. "I got in a really bad accident which was scary. But I'm now a much more cautious driver because of it.....Long story short, my car was in the shop for four or five months and that was sad. I had a big car too it was the scariest thing ever." On her twitter a shaky Emma Roberts posted: "yes thank god! Scary though. Now driving around in a Prius." Female celebrities can afford to buy and keep as many cars as they want!
