Now this is what I like to see from the guys at MB!

Barring the cheesy intake slats and the questionable taillight details, this is awesome for a hatchback...wagon...thing.

So we can probably assume that, apart from some minor concept detailing (door handles, lower grille slats, B and C pillars) that this is pretty much production ready, right?

If so, I can't wait to see the coupe version!

The good:

- Headlights. They look brilliant and give me more hope for the new E!
- Character line and rear-wheel arch detailing. Very unique.
- Sporty rear lights. Merc usually have lazy drooping rear lights.
- Angular nose.

The bad:

- Front bumper needs to be more unique, it doesnt look very interesting.
- Chrome trim around the car needs to go.

Overall, I'm very impressed. It looks sporty, not lazy, and I hope the new E and CLK look like this!

I don't really like that at all. Way too feminine looking. Its like the Bangle of Merc.

I'm surprised its getting such praise from above me.

Wow. That just screams GS so loud. And the vents on the bumper are fake, not something I would expect from a concept car. The rear just looks like a Mazda. If you take off the badge and show the car off it would be known as Mazda.

I like the overall design but shouldn't a CLK be a 2 door sports coupe instead of a hatchback>>>??? I'm confused!

Interesting design, front looks good except for the concentric horizontal slats, the rear reminds me of a Chrysler unfortunately.

Who would buy this? It's a 2 door sport wagon, it would sell like tainted chicken in the US. Too niche driven to make it to production I'd guess.

Apparently it's a design study that'll trickle down into the new E-Class. Nothing more.

I'm not sure I like this one yet, but maybe it will grow on me. Hell, I used to think the new CL looked ugly, but now the CL63 AMG is one of my favorite cars on the road. It is so sleek and sexy and german in Black!
