    It must have been one titanic struggle to get that to look even uglier than the current one. But I see they succeeded! :crazy:

    Good spot with the rear badge. Even MB are trying to disown it! Trying to make it look like a Toyota, or Hyundai, Kia, etc...

    It's not a thing of beauty is it?

    Was looking at a sparkling new white X3 parked on gravel (who say they don't go off road!) outside a country house yesterday and it looked very nice indeed. Nice size too, I thought - probably very similar to the original X5.

    If I was one of those companies I would be very deeply offended.

    To think they could have had something like this if they had hired the right designer. :doh: OK--- he did work for AUDI before Kia. ;)

    What are you lot on about, that looks brilliant, i still don't understand why it's not sold here, i personally think they would sell quite a few especially as a rival to the Freelander and Forester. Oh and the ugliest Mercedes is definitely the SLS, the designer got called away before finishing the rear end :ban:

    Despite the questionable looks A rhd 4x4 GLK would have sold well in the UK- after all the VW Tiguan in its first incarnation was no oil painting and its very popular-- no offence to any Tiguan owners.;)

    I like the looks. Rugged, purposeful, stylish. Just what a 4x4 should look like. Wish it was here in RHD.

    I like the looks too - saw a lot of them in Canada last year and they're rugged looking, much better looking than the ugly abomination that is the Freelander. Foul car.

    I must admit those pics don't look great but in the metal it's a lot better.

    Perhaps it's a marmite motor?

    Looks like a small GL. Great. Just right for a 4x4 IMO. I wouldn't say no to one. In RHD of course.

    Its a shame that they platform/parts share so many of the models nowadays.. that car is just a W204 inside.

    AFAIK In Canada they come with the V6 petrol engine, 20" alloys and chromed roof bars. Its often the "details" that can make or break the look of a slab sided vehicle. :dk:
