Are You Team First-Gen Or Team Second-Gen?
Mercedes-Benz has a long history of setting trends, which includes being the first company to develop technologies we take for granted today, like traction control systems, airbags and anti-lock brakes. It also kicked off the trend of propelling vehicles with motors, having built and sold the first automobile back in 1885. But it’s not usually known for setting styling trends, which is exactly what the company did when it launched the CLS-Class back in 2004.
Despite four doors staring you right in the face, the CLS was officially dubbed a coupe by Mercedes because of the car’s sleek coupe-like roofline. Semantics aside, it kicked off an entirely new segment of four-door coupes with its new, artful approach to transporting four people. Just like a fledgling industry followed the Benz Patent-Motorwagen’s arrival in 1885, the arrival of the CLS created an entirely new class of vehicle.
Having started the trend, Mercedes gets to show us how it will evolve, and the 2012 CLS550 does just that. It’s job isn’t just to steer this trend away from becoming a fad, but also fend off a growing number of automakers who wish they had thought of it first.
