The MLK is the newest Mercedes SUV in development, a compact 4x4 that's rumored to be released sometime in 2008. As evidenced from the photos, the MLK will share similar attributes of the soon-to-be released redesigned C-Class, and will likely compete with both the BMW X3 as well as the Audi Q5.

not trying to be critical of the poster, but shots of cars in this heavy camo do nothing for me... this thing looks like a f_cking tank on wheels -- or like a subaru that just came out of a war-zone...

in closing -- woohoo. i can't tell wtf this thing is, but it's got wheels!

Interesting. Less of an SUV than a sedan with extra ground clearance.


Sure as hell better than the R-class...
it's more like a hatch to me. if you look closely, you'll see that the trunk lid is fake.

ahaha:D. It's a progressive thing. Every couple of weeks, bits of those camo pieces come off, new pictures will surface, and the thread will be updated.

Right now, we know it's a 4x4 (higher ground clearance). We also know it has an almost sedanish/hatchback profile. The roofline is also racked and looks very coupe like (like the CLS). Beltline also seems high. Not a whole lot is given away, but there's bits that kind of hint at what we can expect the final product to look like.

One thing it doesn't look like is the traditional compact SUV/Crossover.

Althought I can't exactly say if I like it or not (obviously), but my guess is that it looks like an S-class, but shorter and raised 10ft off the ground. :bash
