That's a really good-looking large coupe. Yeah, the doors look small for a coupe.

It looks great, more athletic looking, looks more like a modern BMW but better, interior looks great too. First red interior I have really liked. Mercedes is on a roll design wise with this new S class coupe, new S class, and new C class, I still like the quad/peanut headlight design of the previous models better though, I think they should have stuck with that design for the front ends and just enhanced it. So it will go back to being called the S class coupe over the CL coupe, interesting.

Dont hate, but I see Passat CC



plus, I could never figure out exactly why the CL cost about 20K more than the S class...

Very uninspired. Total yawner.

Agreed the back is totally a Passat CC with a chrome unibrow.

Front end is just a widened version of the CLA front. If Lexus did the next gen LS with a stretched CT front end they would be widely lynched by the press. But since it's MB they'll just praise the "family look".

And as before with the spy shots I still see this in the side windows:

It also the same with BMW (M6 Gran Coupe, Coupe and Cabrio costs more than an M5 Saloon).

Perhaps, two-door vehicles are produced in lesser quantities compared to their four-door counterparts?

I have to say, I always find it amusing when people say "it looks like this from x other brand" before they look to the car's own brand history to see if its an evolution of an already existing design. The last 2 generations of CL's (aka S-class coupes) have had very similar window lines.

The last true Benz that had Benz standard of quality is the 4th one in the photo above.

After that Mercedes turned into junk. Today they're just chintzy cars. That under-deliver in most aspects.

I don't care what anyone says but before I purchased my 2IS I checked out the C250 and it was the epitome of trash.

It is hilarious lol

One of my salespeople has a C300...it's a very nice, classy, well built little car. "The epitome of trash?" Someone's own bias is at work there.
