I'd take the AMG one with a V8 Biturbo cranking out 577HP. I'd gladly get the owner drunk and trade it for my 91 Vette since I can't push more than 420 RWHP. Give it a few years and someone will find a way to crank out even more power.

I don't see a problem with either the GLE or that Nissan in the other picture. Neither one violates any design conventions that I can see.

But maybe that's what people want, bold styling. Witness the Nissan Juke which to me is rolling regurgitation.

GLA still takes the cake in my book.

I like the juke, if anything because it doesn't really take itself seriously. Its a goofy design for a goofy, cheap but fun car. It reminds me a lot of the original RAV4.

The GLA is like a crossover trying to be a car..but still higher up off the ground but...idk.

Its not as bad looking as the Juke or the Soul..or that Nissan van thing with the stupid shape. Gah.

I actually like the look and feel of the GLA, especially in the AMG 45 trim. It's a hot hatch.

As you can tell, Daimler has set its sights on a younger, newer demographic. Can't help but notice that many here haven't bought a Mercedes that isn't at least a decade old.

Saw a AMG45 the other day, pretty interesting looking car. Wouldn't mind being seen in it and looked like a lot of fun.
