Certainly the new ML has a lot of refinements over the previous 2 predecessors releases, but I think MB still not serious in capturing enthusiasts imagination and new buyers in this segment. ML in design does not match-up with the Porsche-Cayenne, BMW X5/6, Audi Q5, Infinity FX and for that matter the new entries from luxury manufactures such as Maserati . The ML is solid in performance, but looks & charisma is also required when paying top money.
