2020 Mercedes GLS

An all-new Mercedes GLS is just around the corner. As it will be shown at the New York auto show in just a few days.
It looks like a classier, smoother version of the current model.
Which is fine. Mercedes has been putting all their designs through a "smoothing machine" and they do look quite nice.
The only thing is, they still retain most of the previous shapes. They are basically simpler, smoother versions of the same shapes.
I guess at least it is an improvement. No more strange creases and scoops.
It will also be a welcome improvement in other manufacturers.
(seems like Honda is following the same trend)

This new GLS will now have competition from the new BMW X7. Itself playing the "gross and vulgar" card.
I think the Mercedes will be the obvious classy choice here. (more pictures of the all-new GLS HERE)

And by the way, how about that New York auto show this year?!
It is quite amazing how many new cars will be there.
Besides the all-new GLS, we are getting the new Outback.
But also the new Toyota Highlander, Cadillac CT5, Cayenne Coupe, Ford Escape, Hyundai Venue.
All pretty big news.

Did I miss anything???

Also the Lincoln Corsair, potentially the Genesis GV80 (though not confirmed), the Hyundai Sonata's U.S. debut, Nissan Versa, and possibly others.

Inside will look nice with large size rectangle infotainment screens. Updated steering wheel. If MB keeps the same size, it will be nice for shopping mall parking and feel sort of sporty for a full size SUV!

Are the front and rear stars bigger? That's the important thing for most buyers.

One man's blander is another's cleaner and classier.

Wonder if the mini-mudflaps are standard and if body-colored wheel cladding is optional.
