Mc Gyver selling Mercedes Citan Cargo Van


Seems that Mercedes has hired actor Richard Dean Anderson to play his Mc Gyver one more time.
Not sure if this will be a one off episode long film, long form commercial or what.
But it is a little weird.
It's one thing to hire the guy to play the part, but they also had to get the rights to the character.
I guess reruns of the show is still popular enough in Germany.



The last Mc Gyver TV movie is from the 90's, and Anderson is now 62.
But is still seems to work. Kind of....

What's even more disturbing is that they are actually badging that horrid looking little appliance as a Mercedes.. seriously, how does that resemble anything else in their lineup (including the Sprinter)?

I forgot to mention that it is actually a Renault Cargo van.
It is a Renault Kangoo with a redesigned Mercedes front end.
Which is even more disturbing...

Citan!!! The name is so cute! City mixed with Van. Those guys from Daimler are so smart! It will be fun to see on the road a kangoo van with the same face as the boss super big car.
Great move!

I guess Mercedes thought that MB and Renault reliability goes hand in hand. I have no clue why anoybody would buy this over a Peugeot Partner, Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo or VW Caddy. All those cars are better driver, far more reliable and much prettier.
