It's just not a "beaut". It's got a Dodge Ram truck front end. What were they thinking?

The interior looks nice & it's got a good power injection....I just couldn't marry a chick with a great body but with a chin like Jay Leno.

I think its brilliant, yea you can definitely see Chrysler influences in it. also like Chrysler most out of all american companies though so it's a plus.

Well, hopefully MB can do better with cylinder deactivation than GM did with the automatic trans fifth gen Camaro, because that feature is a real disappointment in that model.

The displacement on demand as it's sometimes called makes an annoying drone sound -- noticable in the cabin -- when it activates.

I'm sure MB can do better, but I guess we'll wait and see.

Don't like the front end, especially compared to that of the R171.

Side vent is okay, back seems the same.

The extra power would be nice.
