    its definitely much improved and I like the seat controls on the door's, but the center dash looks VW w/ wood.

    The exterior looks more stately and more Mercedes Benz. That said, I think CTS will more than hold its own (erg i wish I could say B---TS, but I can't.

    Thumbs up Re: 2008 Mercedes C-Class Unveiled

    Finally a Mercedes C-Class that actually looks very good. The older ones, W202 and W203 (particularly the W203) were so monumentally dull to look at.

    I can't wait to see the C63 AMG.

    The exterior is superb (although I still like the CTS more). The interior is a real letdown though, I must say.

    Oh My God...amazingly I actually agree with you.

    The CTS has more pizazz than the new C-Class, but it's not like saying the Mercedes is ugly. Is just the new Cadillac looks quite good and better than the MB. But in the end there always will be the good new Alfa Romeo 159 which quite literally blow these two cars by one million miles away.

    As for the interior, I like everything except for one small thing. MB designer got the dashboard, the door trims, seats and the SAT-NAV screen right. But they screwed up really badly with the steering - It's ugly and looks like an afterthought. Dr. Zetsche should sack the designer responsible for the steering.

    I agree, the 159 is amazingly sexy. I really must say, looking over and over at that dash has me liking it less and less, it's very blocky and boaring. Not very inspiring at all, it's worlds away from the CLS and somehow less creative than the last generation C-Class. Well, the same could be said about the CTS I guess, although the new one has much better features and is just overall better, it doesn't have the personality of the last generation interior.


    Oh, and just to ruin all this "Agreeing with me stuff" the CLS looks like a bar of soap. Sorry I just had to

    It's understated, yet sophisticated. The new Mercedes design theme actually seems to carry over quite well on a smaller body. Not since the 1st gen C-class has it been able to carry the "Mercedes look" that well.

    I think the interior is also quite fitting.

    Guess I just added another car to my "possible list". Style of the S for the price of the C.

    Ahaha...front end kinda reminds me of the Chevy Caprice sold in the Middle East. In fact...the whole car does.

    It's ok. I think I would rather take the CTS. Woah, I never thought I would say that.

    It was sarcasm, sorry I should have inserted I smiley. I honestly am liking the interior less and less, it reminds me of the Saturn VUE/Outlook.
