Mercedes all the way!
looks pretty good to me could have been more adventurous, but since Merc is going back to their roots, i guess that's not gona happen. if anyone's seen the B-class, i guess the front will look very similar.

i'm a bit worried about the rear lights though. not a big fan of more "vertical" rear lights...

The headlights look good from the side but when you are in front of the car it looks like a Honda or GM car.

so, how did you get this miraculous opportunity?

actually I like the current instrument layout better because the tachometer of the new instrument panel is smaller than the speedometer. I prefer them to be the same size.

Actually, the instrument dials are different.

yeah, but its real. Most likely the exterior renditions are right on the money as well. YUCK YUCK YUCK!!! WTF is MB doing? I won't be buying another if it looks this bad.

That interior could be right out of the seventies or eighties if it weren't for the slit for a cd.

Yep, I concur, it does not look too good. I think the interior of the new Volkswagen GTI MkV looks much better.

Yes, definately it does. I'm digusted at the direction MB is going in for new models. The CLS, SLR and New SLK will be the highwater marks of the outgoing styling language. Blocky, overwrought styling and ugly headlights are back it seems.

And, as a bonus, we get ugly interiors, asian styling, BMW trunklids, and, if you look closely, the car in the picture has an I drive, or whatever gay *** name the MB marketing hacks come up with to call the MB version of it...probably Mousetronic.

On the plus side, the C350SE Coupe is getting great reviews in Europe and England...and I can't buy one....fricken MBUSA....

I think all the new Benz's have been designed very well, Especially the new MLs, i love it. The slk, the s class, the cls and the gl, are amazing designs. I really dont think we will be disappointed. I will reserve judgement till i see it in person.

I hope that's not the new C. The rear looks too first-generation Acura CL.

The steering wheel looks awful too.

I guess we can take solace in the fact that the new CL is even UGLIER. Looks like an accord that got fat.
