That car looks long. Like current E-Class long. Maybe it's the tapered buttocks. Or a long wheelbase for the Chinese market. But dang, if the new one's that long, what is the S-Class going to be like? A bendy bus?

Also, I hope there's a lot of stuff in the trunk, because there's no give in that rear wheel well, while strangely there is in the front with the big heavy engine.

Is it me, or do M-B look rather similar recently, no matter the model? Also, Lincoln with that spindly-grin grille? Love the CLA, to be sure, but on the face of it, this 2015 C Class doesn't seem to break any new visual ground...

That grille has been on the C-Class and CL-Class for a while. The single blade has been part of the E, CLS, S-Class. And with the CLA and the new CL/S-Class coming out, that's probably enough radical designs for them for the new line. Personally I prefer the old C-Class. This one looks big and bloated. The front looks small, the rear looks tall, and the middle looks too tall.

apparently the C class is growing in size to accommodate the CLA>

I love the new C-Class, it's nice enough to make me consider holding off on buying a CLA and settle for a new basemodel C-Class. It resembles the new S-Class a lot, which is obviously a very good thing.

don't like it..as said above it doesn't really break any new visual ground. kinda glad though, 'cause I would've been mad if it looked better than the CLA ;)

What can I say? It is classic like all Mercedes models but nothing special. It even looks a bit old-fashioned to me, to be honest. What are your opinions? I am from California 949 area code, and in my location, I do not see many of these. Possibly I am just not attentive enough. I prefer BMW, driving them for more than 20 years, like these cars a lot. And what do you prefer?
