The w220 is very korean. #2 boy is back in the house for the summer. He got to ride in the 140 and tells me my seats in the 220 are lame compared to the ones his brother enjoys. clay On Jun 25, 2015, at 3:06 PM, Kaleb C. Striplin via Mercedes wrote: Yes I agree. I tend to think the 140 is

If there was one thing about my W220 that’s a negative (in my mind) it’s the styling. It’s a wonderful car and has all sorts of very nice goodies, very good to drive, etc., but in a parking lot it looks like every other car. I think the real distinctive MB design ended with the W140 as a far

Aerodynamics and fuel economy standards drive a lot of the design and shape and openings and such. It seems there is not a lot of latitude for designers when every maker is trying to get low drag. And the Asians are fairly adept at copying stuff so that their next iterations look a lot like
