Looks like a concept is headed to the shanghai show, don't think they need another production ready concept.

Does anyone know why manufacturers bother w/ production-ready "concepts" (esp MB, which seems to be one of the worst offenders)? What's the point?

Well, a lot less than before; Recent Geneva Show did catch more media coverage and general attention than other shows, but in general trend tends to go towards huge press launches or Apple like events.

Here, why even tease the GLB's interior when we know it will end up with the same interior as A-class and CLA, which again looks like every other recent Mercedes interior including the upcoming S-Class, which has only a iPad Pro glued where the gear selector would be as added bonus....
