Of the SUVs of the last time, one could count it to the more succeeded because you do not necessarily see at it the skills off-road. Perhaps Mercedes itself decides from now for a something less martial appearance. Whether the decorative strip is unpleasantly noticeable below the side window just in pictures or in reality also?
You realize it at the weight, one is on the way, the other already successful have gone and on which will probably follow e.g. BMW. Presumably, from the broad range of 5 SUV series one or the other product will be dispensable, but a transverse engine with optional rear-wheel drive rather as the last. After all, even the renowned Jeep currently changes to this principle.
The CW-value is rather average for conditions of Mercedes, seems worlds apart from the CLA class. The 'thereto won' height obviously does not seem to be as easy to shape. You have to remember that the larger cross-sectional area is not yet included in the value after all. Also you do not really benefit from the inside of a better overview. The high side and door walls restrict too much the sense of space below the windows.
The new just shows character. But the tailgate looks then again something more typical of the brand. And then this interior. Cladded with precious woods and maybe equipped even with fragrance of your choice someday, you probably no longer leave it to 'descend' into your own living room.
After all, the ability to order the car also without additional rear-wheel drive, provides for optimistic provoking entry prices. Why, however, the extra charge is twice as high for the all-wheel drive for the 'smaller' diesel, needs to be examined for misprints.
If you jerk it around the pylons, the top dog BMW X1 is superior to it, at least as long as both are ordered without all-wheel. This is due to the clearly more unequal weight distribution of the GLA. But let's see how long BMW is still standing on the basic principle of rear-wheel drive in this class with higher weight and price, more consumption, less luggage space and significantly longer braking distance. 06/14
