We know what you’re thinking: the Mazda2 looks noting like a Mercedes GLK! But you haven’t seen the 1st generation in a long time have you? Production began in 1996 and ended in 2002, and back then, things were a whole lot more boxy.
We haven’t been able to find out who designed the 1st generation Demio, but it looks remarkably similar to a brand new SUV that you might now and like, the Mercedes Benz GLK-Classe.

Unveiled in 2008, the GLK incorporates styling elements from the G-Class with other typical features coming from other Mercedes passenger vehicles, such as the C-Class or ML-Class.

Even though so many years distance them, these two vehicles actually have some design similarities, such as the shape of the A-pilars, the roof rails or the grilles, which despite belonging to different brands have the same overall design.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
