2008 Mercedes-Benz: Ugly Cute

January 12, 2009

I got behind the wheel of our C300 again for the first time in a long time and was reminded how much I like this car.

What I like most (and many will disagree with me) is it's looks. At first I thought the snub nosed German was a little much, but over time it has definitely grown on me. It has presence.

Granted the design is due to upcoming EU pedestrian safety regulations, but it's tough guy good looks are like putting a boxer with a mangled schnoz into a sharp looking tuxedo. He might not win a beauty contest, but his intimidating gaze won't let you doubt his style.
