    • Mercedes-Benz previews their BMW X6 competitor, the MLC-Class, ahead of the concept debut

      Here is a nice teaser from Mercedes-Benz who is attacking BMW everywhere they can. From the high end, to the low end, to enthusiast cars, and across the SUV spectrum. Mercedes-Benz is winning the battle as well (as they deserve too) and this is a new volley in the war. BMW created a hit with the X6 which essentially took the four door coupe idea that Mercedes pioneered to SUV's. Mercedes is now responding with the MLC.

      This is a concept which will be fully revealed at the upcoming Beijing show but like all recent Mercedes-Benz concepts it is beautiful. The question is, will it be as heavy as the M-Class? Will it be sportier? Will it be more fun to drive? Will the changes be mostly cosmetic in a similar manner of X6 to X5? We will wait and see.

      Enjoy the preview.

        Why's it gotta look like someone went over an X6 with tracing paper?

        Personally, I like Car & Driver's rendition here:

        Okay, maybe remove the pontoons if you must, but be original!

        This thing with the M157 is going to be a mean SUV.

        If the X6M gets a DCT that certainly will make things interesting.
