It looks strange...Lexusish along with C classish along with S classish, too bulbous, large, like a caricature of the current E. Its like what the new accord is compared to the real one.

It seems so wrong and strange. The tail lamps look like they were pasted on here from another car like some weird person who changes his 118 NE tail lamps to wagon r ones.

Thats a stupid comparision, but there is no harmony at all here!

BMW had its midlife crisis and they ran and got hold of that Bangle fellow to spoil their cars. Now its time for Mercedes. Only its much more severe and disgusting.

BMW however had the global economic boom on its side then, everyone knows that now is not the same!

Long live Audi!

YUCK!! the rear looks So-So-awful. This is such a wannabe design...wannabe S Class, wannabe Lexus, wannabe Accord. From one front angle it even looks like the last gen Sonata and the rear it looks like the new gen Sonata.

Gimme a 5 series or a W211 anyday!!

This car makes me yawn, currently. The interior feels and looks so plasticky. It misses the charm and opulence of even the W211.

It looks so... discordant. Some of these lines are sharp and edgy. Like the designer thought "Let's make a propah sports sedan!". Then someone came to his room as he put the basic lines down and said "You nincompoop! It's an executive cruiser!". Then he put the huge radiator grill onto it, but forgot to redesign the inner lamps.

Very un-merc-y, even considering the radically different S Klasse.

I still can't digest the way that the S looks. Will admit it is a phenomenal luxobarge and that she has presence. But the ugliest S Class ever. Gimme a W220, W140 or W126 any which day!

I agree, the previous generation S (but with clear lamps please) is by far much nicer to look at than the current one.
