Finally, I Understand The Reason For Mercedes' Fugly New Look


Jalopnik has some clean spyshots of the new Mercedes GLK CUV, the mid-sized CUV based on the C-Class platform. The shots are from the set of the Sex and the City movie; the prop car is white, in Beverly Hills, full of shopping bags, and has a license plate that says "I [HEART] NYC !".

This is normally where I'd ask, "WTF, the GLK is what we get in the US instead of the C-Class wagon?? Wake me up when this car--and this ridiculous movie--is/are over."


But now I realize that these angular, fugly Mercedes lines actually have a purpose. Yes, they're a misanthropic step in car design evolution, but they're necessary in order for current trends to match up to the c. 2017 flying police cars from Blade Runner. And I can put up with that, so as long as I don't have to buy one. As you were, Carrie Bradshaw.
