In profile, the Vision Tokyo looks somewhat ungainly, albeit spacious.

Blind spots are thankfully not generally an issue with autonomous cars.

The Benz's massive grille can light up in a striking shade of blue.

The rear tail lamps are unique - not only are they a 360-degree band around the rear window, they're actually mounted beneath the glass backlight.

Ungainly 26-inch wheels point to a massive turning circle, which is odd in a city car.
