Only thing I saw on there that's remotely interesting to me is augmented reality heads up display to be honest. All the other stuff is just gimmicky to me

Cost way more to develop, integrate, assemble and repair. This is the easy way out...... That is why you see so many info screens stuck up out or ontop of dashes no a days......

It is the way of simplistic auto manufacturing

It is to car interiors what the new 4 series grille is to exteriors.

Yikes.

This looks awful imo. There isn't a single car in Mercedes line up that does anything for me.

Actually there are barely any cars out there these days that do anything for me.

Personally I'd rather drive the Corolla Hatchback with a manual transmission than most of the tech laden luxo barges out there these days.

Is it that you want a bunch of switches to push and flick?

The S-Class is always going to push the limits so I think the new layout fits.

If the reception by customers is good, I can see many others moving to a similar, lower-cost UI in the near future.

As for the exterior, people have been saying Mercedes have looked like Hyundais for years. Do I agree? No, its a lazy comparison especially since Hyundai/Kia has made a concerted effort to apply Germanic design features to their higher end cars over the past decade plus.

Just like BMW its believed that this move is for the Chinese market where S class clientele is younger and more tech savy.

I don't think it's a lazy comparison. It really does resemble a Genesis from the front end especially. That said as you say Hyundai has been stealing German designs for years now so eventually there was no way for the Germans to change or evolve their designs without it possibly crossing into the territory of the copycats that have been basing their designs on the same German cars. When it comes to styling there's only so much you can do that hasn't been before. IMO the new 3 series features the best taillights on a BMW in some time. Some people complain it looks like a Lexus but to me it's worth it to have a better look.

This looks like they are trying hard to use lighting to distract you from the emptiness of the interior. The door cards are ok but there is just nothing appealing about that console.

One gets the feeling they observed very carefully how Tesla got away with their phoned-in interior and now that the bar has been lowered they will gladly follow suit for the sake of improving their margins.

Given the competitiveness of the industry it's understandable. They don't need to make it very beautiful, they just need to make it slightly more beautiful than the current competition. Although some other competitors have more beautiful interiors. And I'm not entirely sure why they seem to be tactically positioning their interior so close to the Model 3 since it is arguably not a direct competitor. I can only guess they either feel like they are losing a lot of market share to them and/or savings on eliminating switchgear must be astronomical

I can't stand so many of these new interiors...center console slab screen, instrument panel slab screen, flat dash, and seats. The only thing they have to think about is size of the screens, and the door card design (which is getting boring as well...quilted leather, aluminum handles, done).

I actually kind of like it. However it still can't beat the current W222. I don't mind touchscreens, however I wish they would have kept physical HVAC controls.

I have a real problem with cars that do away with all the buttons and switches. I want buttons/switches for activities that I will engage in while driving such as adjusting the temp on the AC, changing the volume on the radio, turning on the seat ventilation, adjusting my seat, adjusting the steering wheel, etc. For the rest of the car's features, go ahead and put them in the infotainment system and make me go through the menus. I don't care at that point as I will not be driving. But I don't want to take my eyes off the road to do these activities.

Oh man I hate touch screens. They’re extremely annoying to use while driving. This interior is too simple, cold and bland for an S class imo.

Also, looks kind of similar to a Tesla interior.

It's growing on me. I like all of the details (leather, seats, door panels, etc.) but the total harmony of the interior isn't coming to me, yet.
