I have to agree - that is one more step by MB into the world of senseless, book of records, styling miscues resulting in the eventual terminal ugliness. When BMW came out with their "new" styling ugliness, which started on the Z series cars and then infiltrated the sedan and coupe lines, I was aghast at the sheer ugliness of what was a beautifully styled line of cars. Then MB's current "S" Class came out with the same rear deck treatment - not only was MB now copying another maker's styling direction, they adopted the ugliest features to take a graceful looking line of cars and turn them into concoctions that looked like a hormone driven 16 year old got a "free" coupon for everything he wanted in a J.C. Whitney catalog. Granted they stuck the shit on with what looked like decent craftsmanship, but anyone owning a newer MB can testify that is not something to take for granted anymore.
The front end of that looks like someone started with an Audi SUV. FUGLY. Jim
