the design is not a big surprise, the concept showed the design more or less.

I am not too fond of the black section under the grill. Article says 2020, but I am assuming this is model year, so it should go on sale next year and not in 2020? Otherwise if not, then find it stupid to unveil something and then have to wait another 1.5 years before getting one.

glad it has a more conventional shape instead of the try-hard blob's like the Tesla model X. overall nice looking, and the interior is a good step forward for the GLC.

Right. Cars can generally go on sale January 1 of the year preceding their actual model year...meaning a 2020 can go on sale on January 1, 2019.

I think the design is mostly inoffensive, but it needs some hard creases, as it already looks a bit dated.

It's a "meh" from me. I don't like how the top windowline dips down, causing the profile to look a little droopy, and emphasizing the rear overhang. Perhaps it's more aerodynamic, though? The rear is disappointingly bland, and the front is a bit of mess. Agree that the black trim underneath the "grille" is confusing, and I don't understand why there's so many strakes in the "grille."

Interior is fine. While I'm not a huge fan of the interior spypics of the upcoming GLE, I like how they've tried to incorporate some GLE styling cues in this interior (mainly in the strakes behind the displays) and how the dash wraps around the displays. Not really sure why the displays need ambient lighting of their own, though, and it's a little disappointing to see only single stiching on the dash.

Overall, I think it's sufficiently inoffensive that it should be a decent seller.

I have a strong feeling that the GLS will be styled like a gigantic EQC, for some reason....

It's not attractive. It's dull, forgettable, and in some ways decidedly awkward. I can't see spending Mercedes money for something that looks like that.

Weird and boring. I donít see the appeal here.

Depsite usually thinking Mercedes has the best design of the German 3, this is now the second car after the A-Class which I find dull and boring. also, the connected rear LED light stripe and the huge grille with black plastic bits seems to copy Audi (and there not elements I like);

Inside, the swoopy switch gear on the center stack is weirdly not in harmony with the very straight edged air vents and screens, but at least the otehr edges look way softer than recent Audi interiors.

But like with the AUdi E-Tron SUV, I don't get the point of building a stand alone EV cross over that ends up looking more or less exactly like a facelift of their regular CUV (Q5/GLC) would. Why not just drop the tech in them? It#s not like the proportions would make use of the liberties that EVs allow...

German cars have been taking turns for me. In the 90's it was BMW. Then in the 2000's it was Audi. The past 8 years It's been Merc. But now none of them are doing it for me. All the other European companies have surpassed them for me.
