I actually had a half an hour hands on experience with a w213, got to explore every part of it, two of these cars arrived from germany a little over a month ago and were being unloaded and washed, these two examples have not and will not be sold to the public they were for testing purposes and to train staff, when they first arrived I was there luckily and Malik their senior manager whom me and my father are on good terms with invited me a detailed look at the car on the promise I wont share or take any picutres because they still had couple of w212 orders in the pipeline whoose owners I am sure would be cross if they know before their cars are delivered that new model is now available with shahnawaz, no interior pictures as they had thier scanners ad duplexors attach and wires running and I wasnt allowed anyway though If anyone needs it I can show the time stamp when the pics were taken. one sport and one luxury model, I only got to see interior of the sport

I quite liked it actually the interior is just like the S class and has moved the game miles ahead of the a6 it feels so premium inside, but then it should considering how much shahnawaz demands for it here, and the design is not really a issue as if you stand next to it you can tell it apart from a c and S from its size which is pretty obvious, Unless you have c and e and s in the family and attempts to show of are being thwarted by the relatives C lol same design wont be a issue especially I would imagine the C class owner very pleased with his styling.
its the new MB corporate face just like BMW has their headlights and kidney grille youll either like it or hate one of the corporate faces of audi, bmw, mercedes whatever suits that person.
