`Sex and the City' star Kim Cattrall helps launch new Mercedes Benz SUV

Email   small font medium font large font


Actress Kim Cattrall considers a new sport utility vehicle from Mercedes-Benz to be a perfect fit for her ``Sex and the City'' character, Samantha Jones.

Cattrall helped Daimler AG introduce the Mercedes-Benz GLK Freeside Concept during a reception Saturday night in advance of the North American International Auto Show.

``Very passionate people make Mercedes and they're very smart and I've always considered both of those things right down Samantha's alley,'' Cattrall said. ``It's a cutting-edge car.''

The compact SUV will be driven by Cattrall's sex-obsessed character in the upcoming ``Sex and the City'' movie, which is expected in theatres on May 20. Cattrall said the vehicle ``speaks more about where (Samantha is) in her life and her lifestyle.''

Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will reprise their roles for the romantic comedy, to be distributed by New Line Cinema in association with HBO.

``We are sure that every time we launch a new Mercedes we get the attention,'' said Dieter Zetsche, Daimler AG's chief executive. ``With Kim at our side, we don't know whether it's the product or whether it's her _ but that's even better.''

Cattrall said she's been thrilled by the high expectations for the film, which reunites Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda and Mr. Big for the first time since the long-running HBO series ended in 2004.

``I did not imagine the anticipation. I don't think anybody could. So we're all kind of riding high on that,'' Cattrall said.
