  • THE UNIVERSAL TAIL END MB ADOPTED FOR IT’S COUPES IS REALLY UNATTRACTIVE IN PERSON. NICE SEATS THOUGH.

    • KidRed

      I agree. The tails look soft and droopy. I also don’t like how the shoulder line sinks downwards in the rear. That makes the car appear to be drooping from many angles. That should line should peak or stay steady to create that sexy wedge profile. Mercedes’ new designs all sag in the back half of the profile now. Not a fan.

      • Grumpy

        Still think the biggest issue is the gear selector.

  • Submarines

    Wait… I need to pay 2,300 for a rear view camera and keyless ignition?

    • BlackPegasus

      Yep.. I rented a base model 2016 Nissan Altima with keyless entry, bluetooth and rearview camera. Those features are standard on most midsize cars now. Those features are no longer considered luxury or exclusive. Can’t imagine why Luxury brands are still demanding a premium for non luxury features? Oh wait, because they can!

    Quite expensive for a toad.

  • Mynameis Taylor

    whatever… i love it. I think it’s great looking and I perfer it much more than that of the BMW 4 series.. in and out

    • Nordschleife

      I definitely prefer it on the inside over the 4-Series.
