This is no ordinary M-Class. Referred to as the MLV, this long-wheelbase version of the next generation M-Class measures in over 204 inches long and sports three rows of seating.

The MLV will have unique sheetmetal and an air suspension as standard, with a pair of sunroofs offered as an option.

I dont know but this looks awefully like the new R class, which was the Vision GST concept..if had taken a look at that..that is suppose to come out sometime next year..

So I dont know if this is the same car or they are really stretching the M..







It could be that they have revised the look to match the current mercedes design..but this is suppose to be the R Class..

May be just to save costs and stuff, they are just keeping a lot of things from the M..rather than use this totaly new design which will require everything brand new...may be, I dont know, but what mercedes's website shows is the one I put up..

Great pictures!

The next generation M Class is just so much more mature than the current gen. The headlights seem to have been inspired by the S Class and the body shape is handsome yet wedgy.

Good move Merc, Keep up the non-"Bangling"
