    Those designers didn't have the Evoque in mind when they designed this did they?

    Nope it's MAIN rival is the BMW X6. With 120,000 BMW X6 units sold across the world [ Mainly in the USA or Middle East I would bet :rolleyes: ] since it's debut in 2009 Mercedes have finally realised they need to compete in a certain " niche" With the realisation that chunky off road looks simply don't cut it any more and that most 4x4 vehicles never see any offroad action it makes sense to migrate from a "brick shape" to a "slippery brick" shape.;)

    120,000 units across the world in 3 yrs is proper niche , the design and tooling costs alone surely would make that a loss making product

    They should invest in making cars that rust less, not more pointless cars.

    Want a coupe, Mercedes make 3. A C class, an E and a CL.

    Want a 4x4, they make 4, a GLK, an ML, a GL and a G wagon.
