man I dont know what's up with Merc. They used to be very curvy and round, now they are very square. Infact the C-class has some inconsistancy in it's design because it has a very square, angular front with a rounded rear.

Then we have the SLK which is very rounded to the point it looks girly!...

I think they need a healthy balance of curves and angles. At the moment Audi and BMW are pulling their designs off much better. Some good designs do sneak through the net though like the facelifted SL and new CL (the rear isnt so good though)

Its cute

Actually I agree, looks better than the X3. If the build quality is good, it shouldn't be a bad car to consider...

It's equally as ugly as the X3. The design actually looks more dated than the X3 if you ask me.

It's like Merc and BMW both decided to make small SUVs that look very square and awkward.

I dont know who to be more annoyed at. We have BMW to never makes that mistake but obviously did with the X3, and we have Merc who keep making that mistake and dont learn to get a balance between curves/angles.

I seriously think this SUV looks better than 99% of the other ones available today. I really like the last pic.

Yummy. Looks like MB can't decide whether or not the emblem in the grill is sporty or not.
