In the jungle-like car market of the new millennium only those who adapt and evolve can become top of the tree. Model survival needs brought to life new species, more versatile, more adaptive and more appealing. Such a new species is the sleek four door coupe, which emerged in order to satisfy customer image needs without sacrificing comfort. The first exponent of this evolution was the Mercedes CLS, brought to us by the Stuttgart “instant public image booster”. All alone on the virgin territory the new Mercedes had no trouble replicating itself into a best-seller. The domination days seem to be down counted by the competition, as Jaguar and Volkswagen intend to enter this market segment. Audi is already one step forward, their point of view on the matter was recently caught on tests on the Nürburgring race-track.
