Mercedes used to be synonymous with expense. It was the type of expense where you could see where the money went. Although their prices are higher than ever, their quality is risible. Their hood ornaments and emblems used to be substantial. This one is a disposable plastic dinner plate with a little chrome on it. If the plastic masks a camera or other sensors, it is still a wonder that they made the package look so bad. All of the elements work together to make a very cheap looking front end.
