Mini also doesn't have legs.

Overall width is up > 2 inches, but the track is nearly 5 inches (!!!) wider. One assumes that MB couldn't continue to massage the old chassis to make it conform to modern crash standards, compatible w/ future electronics, or less dangerous to drive....
It needed to be. The current one was abominable to drive on road (where most spend their lives) apparently.

looks good enough to keep sales going but they should've cleaned up the design a lot more. getting rid of the unnecessary side detailing and smoothing out the hood transition would have helped without sacrificing the overall look.as would a slightly more modern greenhouse with the vents integrated to the back side window instead of in the D pillar. the parts bin analog dials are a joke, at least put in a something a bit boxier. The GLS and GLE need this interior yesterday.

Do these still have a live front end and recirculating ball steering? Or did they compromise with IFS and rack&pinion? I wouldn't blame them if they did, mind you.

IIRC, front is independent, rear is not, steering is indeed rack and pinion.
