Looks like a Camry to me. I'm not liking the departure from the Oo [ ] oO headlights. I think that was an E Class signature. Does anybody else think the dash and interior look very late 80's/early 90's to them?

Front end looks like patchwork, headlights and fogs are huge fail. Rear end looks cheap, reminiscent of the older hideous infinity M45.

As for the dash, I can see the 80's look but no complaints here.

looks a bit strange to me with the splitted lights and then with double fog-lights... I am also missing the gear-shifter?! Is it behind the steering wheel like the old 7-Series?

My mother has had the last three generations of E-Classes and she LOVES the pic I showed her. Go figure.

I think the W124 was the last truly hot MB, at least to my eyes.

It's okay at best. I think the new W204 is way better looking. This thing is far less elegant. I've hated every generation of the E-Class though, so I guess I'm not their target market this time around either.

The S-Class remains the best looking MB sedan.
