Why is it ignorant? I agree it is a smaller F01, just like the F30 is a smaller F10 - what's that got to do with anything?

I agree MB created the segment. The Ford Explorer also created the SUV segment, and now do you think they lead the segment? Same is true of the Caravan - no longer the case. Look at Apple that took a segment created and dominated by Nokia and well now look at them.

I agree that the original CLS was ground breaking, and MB - rather than mess with that has kept the look pretty much the same - hence my statement about dated. Perhaps I should have used stale?
