Remember the days during the mid 1960's when Merc had just three body styles - fintail, coupe and SL - have lost count with what they have A, A-L, C, C-SC, CLK, CLK Conv, CL, CLS, SL, SLK, C-T, E, E-T, S , S-L, G, ML, Vaneo, Viano - nearly twenty body variant -

Note SC = sport coupe , T = station wagon, L - long wheel base

This looks like a smaller ML. Just like how the X3 is a smaller X5. Germans seem to have run out of ideas and designs.

The freelander, on the other hand looks very different from big brothers Discovery and RR. And very appealing too.

PS: Are you guys aware of the online petition to fire Bangle ? Hilarious !

Yep dude,
I signed that one many months ago.

Looks like Mercedes Benz wants to beat BMW not only in terms of power, but looks as well albeit Bangled.

I like the looks, except for the incredibly boring 5th door panel.
Also minus the roof racks and it will look a bit slicker.

It looks like Bangle lost a twin brother in Kumbh Mela here in India and now that brother is working for Mercedes Benz now

Cheers
