I've seen a few of these SUV's around. They sell quite well in urban USA. I've seen a lot in Chicago city. Whether its any good i dont know and dont really care.

i was reading the CAR review, they claim it is quite good to drive. Although the looks are squarish, as with most modern mercs, i would like to see it in the metal before passing judgement

Bringing out the GL was bad enough, then MB had to up the ante and bring out this... it is insane... they will do better off it they just let the ML do the work. The GLK is crazy... IMO the only worthwhile 4x4/SUV from MB is the G-Class/Gelšndewagen... that is class, power and luxury at its best.

Seems so inspired by land rover but the inspiration has transformed itself in a weird way!!

Maybe too much thought and to get something best from the garage had driven into yucky designing...Indian SUV's look better than this model which will anyway drill down your pocket.

Thats one very ugly looking car, reminds me if a grasshopper.
