    Looks like a shrunken BMW X3, but it is cute. Why do they bother with such pics though? Clearly this SUV is going to be a jacked up A-Class which will look nothing like this.

    This is actually VERY close to the finished product. VERY close.

    That was a mule. This is the real thing, you can see the obvious resemblance with rendering.

    So here we have a mule, which is really just an A-class on a jacked up suspension.

    And here we have the actual product testing.

    This could get real ugly when the covering comes off. I hope I'm wrong.

    I really hope so too, but I don't count on it.

    Something about the rear just seems off. Plus it's starting to look more like a baby R-class instead of an SUV.

    The front does have more presence....but I'm still concerned. Might end up with the same fate as the R-class after a few years.

    I hope it works out in the end, I really do.
    We might be pleasantly surprised when the 'camo' comes off.

    The rear looks awkward with those tail lamps which seem to extend beyond the rear fender.
    I hope they change them for final production.

    Tail lamps are strange, but i'm warming up a little.
    MB is obviously fully committed to lowering the entry level and expanding the brand.

    Also needed more in rear. Would have been easy to extend the rear about another 5 inches. Boot space is key in the SUV market. Especially after how bad the A was ripped.

    Audi's 'Q' proportions work well. This appears to be as ungainly, perhaps even more so, as the X1.
