A prototype for the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE has been spotted. What’s immediately clear is that the design team has adopted a much more rugged look. Expect the final shape to closely resemble the original GLK whose strong lines were inspired by the iconic G-Class.

Another prototype spied today is for the next-generation Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Fiesta. We know a sporty Fiesta ST will once again be on offer but we’re hoping this time around there’s also a high-performance Fiesta RS.

Wagons may be a dying breed here in the United States but that could change some day. We’ve taken a look at some of the best longroofs sold outside the country. Hopefully our list will persuade a few more people to head to their dealers and demand one.

You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
