2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS Brochure Leaked

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS must be one of the worst kept secrets in the industry, with a raft of spy pictures leaking out from all corners of the internet. Now, the sales brochure for the ground-breaking luxury sedan has been leaked.

The CLS looks quite a bit like a Hyundai Sonata, which is both a complement and an unfortunate consequence of being inventing the four-door luxury coupe segment. Technical details are scarce, just like our proficiency in German, but expect Mercedes lineup for V6 and V8 engines, as well as the inevitable diesel and AMG twin-turbo V8 versions to appear.

What's "ground-breaking" about it? I'm not trying to start a flame war, honestly asking. Having grown up with the post-Taurus 'everything is curves' automotive gestalt, it doesn't look like anything special.
It's also not a brand-new idea to have plenty of ponies under the hood of a four-door passenger car—what gives?

I think they meant that the first CLS was a ground-breaking design when it was released. It did spawn a lot of imitators.

It looks like it's going to be released as a 2012 model in the US.
