This is a discrimination towards the E-class. Its designers must be put in place.

Lot of times when new mercedes model comes out i am like what are they doing with this looks. But after 10 years the car looks much better then all the competition. So i guess we not used to mercedes looking like all other cars but in the end there is a big difference you will notice it as the time passes by.

I feel like most car brands these days are lost in terms of design, like how can you mess up your design when you have a strong identity like mercedes or bmw?

I’m 43 years old and have been a loyal customer for over 20 years. I’ve owned one A, two Es, one S, one GLA, one GLE, and one SL. Let me tell you, after reviewing the newly remodeled S and E class, what the hell... I’ve never been so disappointed!

Mercedes' quality is unquestionable. But the car looks so basic for the price. If I were in the market I'd probably get the year before, or wait for a redesign.

What’s the deal with the massage seats? I’ve contacted two UK Mercedes dealers and both have said the E class doesn’t come with massage seats? It’s really hard to find what option would have massage. The uk site lists it as having massage under tech, but doesn’t say what option, Matt says it has it on this and the coupe video... are the staff in the dealerships just terrible with product knowledge, or has the UK spec not allowed massage seats?

I have a hard time telling between the c-class and e-class. It's a shame really. The older e-class had presence, commanded respect from a mile a way.

Looks like the designers were drunk or just don't care. Ugly car that's a kick in the nuts for Mercedes.
Wheres that Signature Chrome Grille that Bespoke of Class, Style and Elegance.
This car looks like it was scrapped together in or at a Salvage Yard. Truly sad.

I just sold my E series and I think they did a great upgrade to the interior with the new version I’m not so keen on the exterior but overall it was a great car and the best part trouble free with a little over 100,000 miles. I did upgrade to a GLE 350 diesel which I thoroughly enjoyed it very comfortable

All I can say is, E-Class 2003 to 2008.....when Mercedes still had designers who could design. Now they just design Korean cars, something like a branch from Kia.

I was wondering why the E has gotten worse. But then he summed it up nicely at the beginning of the video! The car is mostly used as TAXI! I bet Mercedes is aware of that as well. It went from luxury saloon to TAXI. I guess the youth they tried to attract has gone slightly the wrong direction!

Almost everything is beautiful on this car. Really liking the front, but the rear end of the car( the rear lights) looks so cheap. The old e class had better rear end.

My favorite modern E class was between 2014-2016. I have one in mint condition in grey metallic and it’s and amazing car. Same goes the the S class in those years. The exterior after 2016 went downhill big time. Fake exhaust are a deal breaker
