There is a sense of complete sense () in every Mercedes they make. Granted the GL and the R Class let the side down a bit with their excess but they will never do an E class hatchback and call it a "GT". The only thing Mercedes ever promised anybody was unparalleled quality and prestige, which they deliver in spades.
