Default Mercedes EQC

Tried to reduce the chrome and removed the gloss black plastic.



What do you think?

Yup this solves the major issues with the front for me. I feel MB tried to make the front different so people would know this is not just some ordinary suv.

Much better, but still not a total win. This is a massive stumble for Mercedes.

I agree, it is a massive improvement, but how about deleting the non functional fake grilles everywhere in general (after all, it's an EV?)

To give credit where credit is due, Tesla is the only company I can think of that has succeeded in doing that.

Car makers will use fake grilles simply because the play a huge part in brand image. Though this Mercedes is a bad example because it just looks **** compared to the sculpted grille design of its brothers and sisters.

Similarly fake air vents are used to give blank areas of a design a bit of interest. I draw the line at fake exhausts though. They look just cheap and pitiful.
