    I think Rory this is where you compare one with another that are not like for like.

    And the whole discussion is a comparison of diesel and petrol so we do need to compare like with like if we want any valid conclusions.

    The thread is actually about GLK sales in Europe!

    But no matter, I was describing my personal circumstances.

    It's pretty pointless comparing the government required figures because the cars seem to vary so much and the type of journey people regularly drive may work more in favour one car than another.

    I very much like the rugged look of the GL so having a smaller version appeals to me. Just a shame it will be a long wait before it comes to the UK. From the photos I think it looks especially good in dark colours and no doubt it will look even better in the flesh.

    The fact that it looks like an MB GL but unlike other 4x4s is to me a big plus. I had a 420 GL on loan for a few weeks. Fabulous.
