Agreed, this generation somehow never seemed to me as an option worth considering in a crowded segment, with the interior and it#s weird twin screen center stack with graphics form the Windows CE era...

I think dynamics are one thing, let's say a Range Rover also has no specific dynamics at this (or even significantly higher) price point, but people accept that as off road capability is part of teh...

I guess number one was a mule using an A-Class suspension, and this is the real deal; Also not how the wheel cutouts look a bit crude on the first ar, usually a typical thing on mules...

Weird, after the GLB now covers the "practical" end of the small CUV market, this looks also taller and boxier and thus spacious vs. sporty looks than teh current GLA; Given the GLB now has all teh...

I agree, though I'd say that both the 3008 and newest 208 look better than this, slightly; It is stylish and expensive looking, though bordering being overs styled in places. Inside, as with the new...

I agree, it does look way less "third world" than most small Indian market cars (some of those 3,99m sedans are truly atrocious), the belt line kink/triangle is a bit quirky, but otherwise a modern...

Whilst I really like the LandCruiser for it's capabilities, I never really got the reasoning behind a Lexus version of it; The grille is huge, works least of any Lexus here(givne the rest is a rugged...

They do indeed say it's a new platform, despite the body on it looking more or less the same; I guess in this case it means updated axles and new drivetrain, including the battery (probably the...

Hay a very strong VAG vibe to me, kind of like a cross between a Skoda Karoq and a SEAT Arona; Not ugly, just dull and, as the front end of the Skoda (that it reminds me of), also over designed;

The lack of platform utilization is staggering, given how Fiat is (together with Chrysler and it'S K-Car) among the pioneers of car platforms (over use); the FIat 128 platform basically spawned a lot...

I agree, the rear 3/4 view, with the Volvo like greenhouse and the Lexus taillights has very little immediate BMW to it; Still, I think it'S not an unattractive vehicle, but, as you say, I also...

I fully agree, a lot better actually ( I really think the regular 8 series looks rather ungainly on the road), this seems to have much better proportions;

However, it still reminds me of the Kia...

The shape does look more practical than many overly sporty CUVs, but length wise, there is no magic, as can be seen by the hardly existing leg room in the 3rd row; SUre, the 2nd row slides, but even...

Well, price wise I wouldn't consider it mid sized anywhere, and size wise definitely no one outside the US would either;

That said, the GLB will compete with the X1, so the X5 is still two...

It's a lot better than before, finally proper luxury car (non FWD) proportions; The detailing seems in a very un VAG way restrained and elegant, probably there is hope other brands will dial back the...

Looks good, and a lot better than the rather dull base ceed; It's however a bit weird that it is likely less practical than a regular ceed, given the sloping roofline;

That said, I agree, the...
