I have to say, I love the look of the Mercedes C-Class wagons [which, naturally, they stopped selling in the US in 2005], and I hate hate hate everything about the new C-Class coupe except the headlights.
So even though there's supposed to be another wagon, and maybe even a diesel in the lineup, you'll understand if I'm a little wary about the 2008 redesign of the mid-sized Mercedes line that's scheduled to hit the market in 2007.
And from the spyshots of a 2008 C-Class sedan on Edmunds.com, I don't see any reason to get my hopes up that a cool wagon will be forthcoming.
What surprises me, though, is how the idea of a scaled down version of the giant GL SUV actually doesn't suck. Dubbed the GLK and slotted as a 2009 model, the spyshots of this mid-sized BMW X3 competitor show Mercedes may finally be listening to customers whose kids aren't in college yet.
