Many people will find this car appealing, but for me it is not a Mercedes. Mercedes has lost its way and is struggling to find new customers and attract a younger crowd, by getting rid of their image of "an old man's car". But that is not what Mercedes used to be.
Interior looks good, overall exterior idea is ok, but lines are badly executed, to messy and useless. FWD proportions are akward, they did nothing to improve that, but EU regulations are also responsible for that. If 2 Series GranCoupé gets a good looking front, it will sell more than its rivals, especially in the US. Mercedes A Class/CLA is only a short-term success IMO.
