Oooh, chrome roof rails and window sill trim. Nice. The side mirrors look bigger too.

The bigger side mirrors would be a useful change. The rest I can live without.

I definitely like the side mirrors. I find the existing ones acceptable, but a downgrade from my '00 ML320. The new wheel design looks great too. That prototype vehicle definitely has Airmatic as it is riding about the same height as mine does in Sport mode.
As far as the chrome window sills, I already have that, along with the LED taillamps
I do like the chrome roof rails, but suspect that they will be prohibitively expensive as a retrofit.
The hood design (not shown in this pic) is also changed, with a few more "curves" similar to that of the X5's hood.

Wow, highway efficiency of the already pretty good 320CDI engine, added passing power and in city/stop n go efficiency of the 2 mode electric powertrain.
Me wants! That could be quite the winning combination if they pull it off with typical MBenz refinement.

Excellent! Look at the 3 pointed star in the front grill....Distronic. Never seen that before on an ML, especially since this Hybrid model is not top of the line in terms of cost (as is the ML550 or ML63).
We've had Distronic on 2 models, and although it is cool, and actually (surprisingly) works, here in So. CA....not much chance to ever use it. Also, I think the solid Distronic 3 pointed star is somewhat ugly, compared to the traditional grill star.
