    How tacky and painful to look at. Oh and I'll wait with bated breath for C&D to say how "over-wrought" this interior is, of course they won't- now that the E-class is completely over the top, that will become the new standard. I expect the next 5 Series to try to top this by simply chroming everything in the interior other than the seats.

    You said that Mercedes-Benz interiors do not age well and retain a modern look for a year or two only.

    That's why I posted pictures of the S Class's interior, as it has aged rather well, and it's been here for close to three years.

    I need that wood in my life. Seriously.

    I loved it in the S Class Coupe, and I love it here. That's probably some of the nicest wood trim you'll find in any car IMHO.

    Or, you know, genuine metal accents?







    The entire competition, Cadillac included, can learn a thing or two from this interior.

    Saw a few new pictures on GCF, figured I'd post them here:

    Absolutely. Mercedes-Benz is continually proving that they're the king of luxury, especially on the inside. And every single car they've launched recently, sans CLA, is absolutely spectacular.

    Speaking of CT6, did you see the new Genesis G90? That car has a great interior as well. Very nice.

    Hopefully now people understand why the CT6 is in some pretty grave danger...

    I just cant get over there huge monoscreen for the IP. Just throws everything off on the interior. Such an odd shape.

    Very nicely done. Much better than the C Class as it's looks a little more cohesive as the disparate elements don't seem to jump out at you as on the smaller car. With that being said look at the stitching on the brown leather of the door and the seam itself! If this was Jaguar or Cadillac it would be all that anyone (you) could talk about! It's completely unacceptable in official press photos.

    You see an evolution, but it is so clearly Mercedes-Benz.

    1996


    2005


    2015



    What you see now, with the C and S-Class is the next iteration of Mercedes design. It's more flowing more elegant but still carries a level of restraint and conservativism.
    In 5-10 years, you will probably see an evolution of this SAME design.

    2017
    I agree with evolution and consistency but I'd like to see MB move beyond the progression of an old luxury interior feel because it's important for their future.

    MB is a respected but not exactly desirable luxury brand among the demographic that is going make up 80% of the luxury market by 2020, which are Millennials.

    MB's source of "money" is going to change very quickly and I don't see them adapting to meet the demands of that group.

    I think Mercedes can make that shift, actually. That's an interesting discussion to have, nonetheless.

    Is there some additional images of interior with this "base" version of instrument panel?

    The main critique of Mercedes is that their interiors are rather staid and conservative.
    I don't really see that as a "weakness," per se.
    That's Mercedes' look and feel. And major divergence from that, and you disrupt the customer base. So a slow evolution is probably Mercedes' only real choice.
    I mean, if they dropped a BMW into a Mercedes, you'd probably have a riot.

    I think this new E demonstrates that evolution from the conservative interior of prior years to one that is more modern and less traditional, but still holding onto Mercedes' own values.

    Looks really nice but you're fooling yourself if you think this is the interior of the bulk of E-class models/sales.

    This interior is for the most expensive E-classes and for marketing purposes.

    I would be interested to see what the version that actually falls within the price class of its competitors looks like.
