personally I think the Macan is sportier than the GLAI agree about the tail lights. Changing the design of the rear of the car just a bit could take away from its bulbous look. A sleek tail light design could be a first step. The Mercedes GLA has a nicer rear than the Macan IMO. Though it's hard to say anything about the tail light design with the camo still on the car.
but it might be just sporty enough for their wivesI think that Porsches are supposed to be sportier than Mercedes. That is why I think that the Mercedes GLA will sell better than the Macan. Though the Macan is sportier than the GLA, it is just not sporty enough for Porsche fans. The GLA is better geared towards what Mercedes fans are looking for. People thought that the Cayenne wouldn't sell for the same reason and were proven very wrong, so I guess only time will tell.
