'03 C230 Sport Sedan
Does anyone else find the styling of the sedan to be somewhat subdued "Bangle-ation" of the C-Class? I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for all of MB's lines.

At least the coupe doesn't suffer from the same mutilation.

Yep, we discussed this a while ago. We all agree it looks like a freaking Acura

OMG!!! What the hell is with those headlights? Jeez! The whole thing looks like it was attacked by a Bangle wanna-be! I can safely say that MB isn't getting my money when it comes time to change my C230k SS...

DAMN!! FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYY! !!!!!!

wow, does look like the Acura with the Benz grill up in front. The cars are getting more boxier and boxier, i like it when the benzs are nicely curved. Seems like their is a slight fender flare on that car. I guess MB wants to make it more aggressive. Not diggin it too much

That is a result when you get american car designers involved. The car looks like they took a Honda, BMW, Audi and Dodge (any small four door Dodge) and put then in a bag then shooked them up and spit out the new C-Class.

If that is what it will look like, I would rather take an Acura TSX for a sharper appearance.

yes it does have acura resemblance, but from those pics looks like the coupe is still around.

Just because it is still around does not mean it will be in the USA. Remember that every other country on the face of the Earth has many MB's we never see here. I still wish the C30 AMG or C32 AMG Coupes would have showed up here......

You think that re-design is bad go get the latest Car and Driver and see how they killed the G-Class..... I am so dissapointed in MB's choice of the way they want to go. Maybe they have not heard that no one likes the Bangle-ised BMW's!!!!!!

ive seen pics of the new G. not really sure about it. i agree that just because there are pics doenst mean it is coming to the USA. but from a thread i read before i took it as meaning the coupe was going for good, not that it wasnt coming to the US shores.

C320 Coupe
it looks like they're trying to make it look really really aggressive. to a degree, they're successful on that front.

i don't think it's as bangle-esque as many have made it out to be - it's not as horrendous as the new 7, 6, 5, and Z4 bmws IMHO.

i do think the coupe's rear end looks better compared with the current coupes.

overall, i'm indifferent. maybe it'll grow on us. the coupe grew on me, i hated it at first hah; i now own one.

i never liked the taillights of the coupe but loved the rest of the car. i fixed that with the 2005 tails. i agree with prodigy1387, i do like the new rear end of the coupe.
