There is definitely a resemblance.... I have noticed a lot of the Asian car makers mimicking Benz's style.

That's what a Benz salesman told me too . . .

It must be a trend or something ?

But who knows best .

There are tons of Asian cars that look a little too much like the Mercedes models from a few years before. New Hyundai Sonatas look like a C class. There is a Kia with a front end that looks like a classic Benz.

Asia has always tried to copy the looks of Mercedes and many other European cars. Now they are really trying with Buick as well. Anyone remember the LS430 Lexus and how it resembled the W140 body? A good looking car for sure but daul to drive and not the character and class the 140 has!

I don't see it. The tail lights are similar but the shape of the trunk is very different.

A bagel and a Michelin Pilot also share a certain resemblance.
