Toyota Blade inspired by CLS Class

Toyota will unveil the Toyota Blade today. The headlights are similar to the CLS and Infinity G35 Coupe

From now on, about 50% of new cars will likely copy the CLS headlamp.
It's the most progressive piece of design to come out of MB for a long time.

Well, it's obvious that people have been and will be copying the CLS. It was somewhat controversial but very very successful.

Since everyone is copying, it's to keep up with the competition.

BM will be coming out with a 4-door coupe, and VW will be coming out with a 4-door coupe like Passat-based vehicle, and there are plenty of other renditions that have been planned that copy the idea of the CLS (hehe, the only new Merc I'd actually buy).

Edit: Other than the headlight, the Toyota Blade has no inspiration form the CLS. It's a 4 door hatch that looks like a Renault Megane.
