S212 E220CDI Blue Efficiency SE Edition 125 Estate (7G+Auto - 2011)
Thanks for sharing
Unsure how to receive this.... I would happily take delivery of one BUT......
MB seem to have jumped on the excessively large front grill bandwagon. I find it odd that MB & BMW plus others are doing this. As more full electric models become available, over stated front grills may make a bold statement that the large grilled cars are "old tech". On the flip side I prefer cars to have some grill/mouth. Tesla Model 3 arguably an interesting car but absence of front grill arguably denies it some character. At least this forthcoming E class grill wears a smile rather than the downward (sad ?) face of the forthcoming E class facelift.
Some might feel the lamp cluster architecture lacks character or originality, with headlamps & rear clusters arguably not too dissimilar to many mainstream cars. (Ford Mondeo, Hyundia Tuscan etc).
As for the interior......I regard the current W222/V222 interesting far more pleasing to the eye. Many buy cars of this type/sector to chauffeur clients or perhaps to be chauffeured in. Some paying passengers might prefer an interior with for a greater sense of occasion.
Mindful my views may be more critical than others.......Been dormant on here for years until very recently...Hopefully I wont need to get my coat just yet
Looks good to me, although the rear looks quite Audi-ish, as others have said. I hope the finished product looks less like the C & E than the current one does - the previous 221 for example was much better in this regard. And, yeah yeah, I know, the W202, 124 and 140 back in the day were very similar etc.
