Front:

- Not bad design. Quite fussy and predictable though. Notice the lights are Ocean Drive concept inspired.
- Character line is just awful. Why is it banana shaped again? I do like the rear wheel arch though.

Rear:

- Those lights are soooooooooooo lazy it's unbelievable!
- General bodywork is quite nice though. Again predictable though.

I dont see much point in making chops without prototypes to at least give a prediction. This is a random guess

That reminds me. Have you seen the facelift on the road? It's SO hard to spot changes apart from only having 2 slats in the grille instead of 3. But yeah, it's just had a facelift so why make chops without even prototypes on the road yet.

It's fun to guess maybe. They did at least try to use some design cues from future models such as the E-class and Ocean drive Concept.

Front looks better than the one now, that's for sure. Don't know what other people think, but I personally think the current CLS front looks atrocious...

I like it... it removes all the niggles from the current desing that I have a gripe about specially that bulbous overhang they call a nose. Hopefully yhis makes into production and the CLS will be what it was always supposed to be... as for the lazy tail comment, I think this car signifies being a laid back super cruiser. This design definately fits that bill....

Agreed. The front end is actually nice, but that first segment of the character line could start lower and further back, like the e92's, and it could be straightened out a bit more too.

The taillights look like they came off of an ES.
