IMO it looks good. nice lines of flow. but that big chrome plates doesn't add up to the flow.

The car looks good overall.
But i think the lines on the side make the car appear to be raised. Which spoils things a bit.

Default CLS, ML & CL testing in Dubai

We have a set of cars in our office, hot weather testing in the Dubai. They were here last year also. We also have the ML taking trips to the deserts of UAE. One CL met with an accident while testing here.

I will not be able to post the pictures anyhow (Non-disclosure policy in the contract). So, I would request guys in the forum who are working in Jebel Ali to keep their eyes open and cameras ready.

I am not really sure about my views on this one. I was just about to write that I will take the last gen CLS over and above this one, and then I see it again and get all confused. As of now I am not sure I like it or not, I will reserve my comments till the time I see it in person. BTW by what time we can expect it in India?

The CLS is a car which won't age well. Same goes for the new one IMHO.

The fourth picture is of the current CLS.

Not sure if I like it just yet, but then I didn't like the current CLS for quite some time, before it started to grow on me.

manufacturers are sticking LED's all over the vehicles. in this case the headlamp doesnt look that nice, overdone LED's.

OT: even in the new s class they dont look nice. and the most horrid ofcourse is the A6.

Front has been overdone with LED's. The rear end looks too bulky and does not gel with the entire design of the car. Has the specs come out yet ?
