I think cruise control not very useful in Singapore.

and many driver dun even know they exist.

Well imagine people mistake your S class for a C class.

 

However, it would be extremely flattering for them to mistake your C class for a S class [laugh]

 

Yes. It's the brand's design language and identity and it should apply across the entire range for each generation of cars. All the big brands do it. It might look the same from the smallest to the biggest, but there are enough differences to set them apart.

For MB, the S class cars set the tone for every generation and then filter through the entire range from there. To see a new design language take place, you will have to wait for the new S class. Not just face-lift. It has always been like that.

Would you tell this to your wife?

No. But logic can be the same.

 

Actually I eat practically the same stuff every weekend. My wife asks if I don't get bored and wanna try something else. My response to her is that she better hope I don't get bored otherwise I might get bored of her too  [laugh]

Definitely. But i am not sure if this common design across the models concept, has it been there all the while?

 

Will it not dilute the excitement for consumers over the next facelift of any models, knowing that it will look almost the same as the first models adopting the new design language? And will it not affect people buying different models, why buy from Mercedes if look the same internally?

 

To me it is either the engineers are brilliant or plain lazy, depending on your perspective haha.

Kids born from same Father and Mother looks alike la.. most if not all “higher end “ Brand’s like that la.. u see condos after awhile also look alike.. go marina cbd almost all building blue.. u look at trees all green Edited by BenTong

on that note, most on the spectrum, spelt ASPERGES, also stick to same pattern one, and never change. 

 

Thus, this could perhaps explain his behavior here and the various angle he posts.  Albeit mild, it does manifest consistently...

Speaking of changing for sake of changing. I find a lot of new design of controls that seem to be a step back.

E.g changing fan speed or adjust temp is easily done in one step - just turn the knob or press up/down button. New design need to navigate a screen to climate control selection, then change fan speed. After which nagivate again to another selection to adjust temp. Takes up more time, more steps so where is the ergonomics?

This one is manufacturer issue liao. Haha.

At least for bmw and volvo, still very straightforward. Bmw/mini still has seperate climate controls and for volvo, even tho on screen, but the button for climate will always be shown regardless which function you are in.

Nowadays buying from the big 3 German ( Merc, Audi , BMW ) is like buying clothes . 

 

Comes in a few sizes S , M , L , XL .

 

A3 macam A4 , A4 macam A6 , C class macam E , 3 series macam 5 . 

 

Lexus also seems to be following suit with ES looking like a mini LS . Or shall I say the LS is a bigger version of the ES ?  [rolleyes]

Henry Ford said this in 1909.. Very far-sighted indeed

Mercedes is doing what bmw and audi is doing, same design for all model but diff size, pricing and features. That would save design fee and create a more standardised distinctive look

 

Lexus as well. I thinks its acceptable for common brand identity.
