2019 Mercedes CLS

I have to say, this looks pretty terrible to me.

I don’t like black wheels, and I really hate these new matte finish Mercedes is pushing on some of their cars. (as very expensive options) So I guess this is a really bad combo for my taste.

But the wheels look too small anyway for some reason. The whole thing looks like the first generation design forced onto the new E-Class platform.
It just looks weird. Something isn’t right.

Plus, you can tell it still has this tiny old fashion sunroof. While all other versions of the new E-Class (except the convertible, of course) offer a larger panoramic glass roof.

And the interior, as expected, is the same as the regular E-Class.
So this isn’t special at all. (But it will be priced way more expensive than the E-Class as usual) And it looks weird on top of it.

Maybe in other colors…

I will post more pictures very soon…

  1. "The whole thing looks like the first generation design forced onto the new E-Class platform.

    Exactly!

    The second generation was better-looking than the first (to me, anyway). This just recreates the droopy-ass original on a new platform.

  2. Now that's a bar of soap. Never thought so about older minivan designs but definitely here. And its been sitting in the soapdish for a while getting wet.

  3. Maybe it will look better in person cause this is horrible. I would have imagined more of the sl front end with the S class coupe rear. These lights aren’t good. 👎🏼

  4. Very troubling. Mercedes has been on a downward spiral ever since Bruno Sacco left in my opinion. I miss the age of the W124 body that reeked of innovation and Germanic clarity.

    It's not even worth trying to come up with a cleverly worded quip like I usually do as it's clear that there is trouble at Mercedes.
