one if this car's major flaws was the huge rear overhang. hard to tell with camo but they appear to have stretched the wheelbase and alleviated this somewhat.

If it wasn't for the headlights, i could bet this is a pic for the W211 back in year 2000.

IMO it was less the rear overhang as such, but the weirdly pushed back cabin/C-pillar, that gave it the ungainly "big butt" look of a small sedan (one that was converted from a hatchback). To a certain extent, the current C-Class also has a similar problem, looking a bit weird from the rear proportions (like the designer ran out of available car length). This seems better, though of course the zoom pictures could still hide final proportions....

Interior:



Obviously mimicking the S Class, although I'm not sure if it's looking as good as the S. Like the article says, digital gauges are probably going to be an option but analog gauges look super tacked on...

On the interior front, definitely NO IMO.
