Outside, it has a classic, balanced and handsome look. The long hood and short trunk lid profile lay over a longer wheelbase, giving it a more relaxed look. The big Benz grille comes in two flavors: Luxury models get the hood-mounted star while Sports models feature a three-pointed logo inside the grille.A deep shoulder line flows slightly toward the rear wheels. LED-ribbed taillights surround the shortened trunk lid. The LED taillights at the rear end have a diffused pattern known as Stardust effect in Benz terminology, which is not as complex as Rolls-Royce’s starlight roof.
