PREVIEW: Mercedes-Benz aims at BMW X6 with the new MLC

Guns are firmly pointed towards the Bavarian company and Mercedes-Benz is clearly stating its determined message to catch up the lost time. Starting with 2014, a new model will enter the Star's lineup: the MLC will reportedly be marketed as a SUV coupe, the first of its kind in the history of Mercedes-Benz. The new 4x4 vehicle will use the powertrain of the new M-Class, but don't expect eminent offroad capabilities, because the MLC will be street-oriented. The design team led by Prof. Gorden Wagener are met with a difficult challenge: creating the most beautiful coupe aura on a high-sitting car and visually emphasizing the dynamical potency of the future MLC. Don't be fooled by the funny rendition posted above - looks far from promising, we say. Sticking to basics, most probably, Mercedes-Benz will be kind enough to release a concept car serving as a preview sometime ahead of the official unveiling of the serial production car. Oh boy, things are really heating up...

Looks great the MLC and my opinion is that will exceed in sales the X6 and the Q6........ but i think the Daimler AG release this suv too late.
