I would not have expected a comment like this from one attending MB training but luckily the forum at least is open for all kinds of views.
Looking at the parts diagrams, there isn't that much common with the W204, I guess you mean more like the visual feeling from the head unit location/looks etc?
How come the E-coupe looks nice if it has more or less the same ugly rear? The "missing" rear doors make a difference but not like a night and day.
I would have picked up some other "cool" new features from the E, like the dynamic xenon lights or the speed limit traffic sign detector (night view is already old from the W221 although improved now for the 212 and face lift 221).
The coffee cup feature has been on Volvos for more than a year, not sure when they had it.
