The headlights and the Amby like curvature on the rear door- quarter panel, looks out of place on a "Mercedes"

Front end is NOT AT ALL IMPRESSIVE - looks like some of the old LEXUSs...very clearly Japanese from the front..i wonder what LEXUS would do now!

rear is as bland as the old ACCORD.
side profile and the ELEVATED HOOD - straight off the NEW C CLASS - which of course was a design cue lifted straight off the ELEVATED BOOT LID as seen in some beemers

but i wonder how all this looks in FLESH

The rear looks like the new 3 series coupe, especially the lights, hate the headlamps, what happened to the round ones?

Do not like the front.
Back lights are somewhat similar to Sonata Embera.
Not that its anything bad, but........ its E Class.

Interior design seems to be inspired by BMWs, rear looks quite similar to embera and front lights too much Lexusish.

I did not like it at all at first glance,lets wait for more pictures to term it good or bad.

Looks heavier. And looks like a product of Accord/ C class mating.

Edit: Newer one looks far better and more S-ish.

The thin line between the styling of the lexus luxo barges and the mercs seems to be getting even more blurred!
But it looks ok overall in the pics posted by anshuman. Personally didnt like the black control switched on the cream leather steering wheel!

Like the overall design and the curves.
Still feel that S-Class type lights would have suited better.
