    Looks dated. To everyone, their own. I think a traditional interior would detract from the X.

    I am one of those hated drivers that has an interest in what the 2022 and 2027 Mercedes EVs will look like. So far, they've only released the Smart, which is entirely too tiny for me; most of the rest of their EVs are anemic, ugly, etc.. That's why Tesla ate their lunch. If Mercedes can make dinner, I'm very interested. By then I'll already be in a Tesla or better, though, so they'll have to do something amazing.

    Part of my bias is that I really don't mind high quality even if it is not flashy, showy, and the latest fad. I want quality. Many fad-oriented people, THANKFULLY, are drawn to EV's because they are good, right, and the new great thing, for which I am eternally grateful, but I'm not that. I hit the fad point with EV's back in the 1980s, and have been waiting to buy one ever since, and my tastes have evolved, matured and grown along with me.

    Sorry, that looks awful to me. It looks dated and too much like the regular Mercedes interior, which I can't stand. That said, everyone prefers something different. Driving my S has made me hate buttons and anything less than a 17" screen. I am spoiled.

    Looks very dated.... If we are talking Mercedes, the interior of the new S-coupe is much more appealing, provided they could integrate the large command screen.

    If only the interior of the X and S looked like the Cadillac ELR's interior, albeit while retaining the large display instead of the gawdawful C.U.E. system. That would be heavenly...

    I have the ELR, interior is nice but I thought the X would be even nicer?

    The X interior has many strengths and some advantages over the ELR's, but it doesn't look nearly as opulent.
