Mercedes GLK


It doesn't look any better "in the flesh".

A crappy design is a crappy design, no matter what.

They should be ashamed of themselves.....

The GLK has love-or-hate looks; The main problem with it, it's that it's just too flashy and "cheesy"... witch has started to become a trademark with Mercedes, lately...

Awful, heavy-handed design. "Cheesy" is the right word. The grille is also very similar to Acuras SUV, which is equally as bad but at least they were first. Mercedes should not be copying downmarket brands' design elements.

Ugly but better than the Honda Pilot.

What's with the Acura grill?

Wait for this to show up in a teenage rap video.

That Merc logo is supposed to be bling enough to make it all OK? I don't think so. I love the G-Class, known for two decades in Deutschland as the Geländewagen, but this pulls from the wrong design themes of that vehicle. I imagine it going something like this.

"Oh, ja. They like Der Geländewagen. Der Geländewagen is 'Bling'. Der Geländewagen is also 'Boxy'. Designers, we want you to do 'Boxy'. But not too much. Ja?"

"Ja."

"Sehr gut."

...

Scheiße.

It's different and I love it...
Why do we have to expect everything the same...what's common...
The design is crisp

A beautiful car design is like pornography, it can't be defined, but you know it when you see it.
Trust me, this ain't it.
