Few more CLS pics (new gen)

I think it looks not too bad actually from certain angles.

The thing I hate the most are those damn headlights. They look so ghastly -_-; The rear ain't all that pretty either..... everything else I can deal with.....

If anything, I like the headlights. MB seems to be incorporating a vaguely similar headlight unit across all their models now for some identity.

My main problem with this car has to do with the point where all the major character lines converge. It's too busy. I wish the lower line was picked up by that rear haunch instead of going past it towards the rear.

The rest of the car is agreeable with me in pics, so far. Need to see it in person.

And I understand that it's a popular trend with design now to use the top character line as a way to establish a wider front fender, but I wish the line started higher in the rear, almost in line with the handles, and went lower into the front fender, parallel to the window sills.

Not bad, but not as beautiful as the original the first time I saw one.

It's hideous. Absolutely disgusting. I have a strong feeling that anyone thinking it's nice actually means "well, I guess it could be worse."

The front looks like it got punched in flat, the tail light design doesn't flow with anything, the lines on the side look confused and don't really flow...

...and the headlights remind me of

with the lines running through them...

They have lines going every which way... not a fan. The current CLS looks more beautiful, imo.

Looks ok but I'm sure it will start growing on me. I hated the Porsche Panamera at first but now I want one so bad.

I really like the look of it at this point. For what is essentially a coupe-like sedan, this new iteration of the CLS is hard to beat. I'm interested to see how the production 6-series Gran Coupe will stack up. But for now, a CLS63 AMG with the 5.5L twin turbocharged V8 is at the top of my list in this category.

HKS786, you love the new cls, don't you.
The new CLS will not look good without the AMG package. That sports package is a must. Without it, it will look like a bland e class.

The same can be said about almost any non-AMG styled mercedes.
