Glyn beat me to the bunch. Lot of hyundai's current designs are by Piaskowski, including both the genesis coupe and sedan.

Hyundai and ford pretty much found the magic formula. Just have European styling and not use european electronics and people will buy.
Interesting, I think the person who designed the CLS did it the opposite

I could spend 5 minutes on this forum, or any car forum for that matter, and find the same thing (i.e. people ranting about various defects and issues with their car). Most car mfrs. in general are building pretty good cars these days, but every model has their own unique issues, American cars no more than any other. Various quality surveys have born this out over at least the last few years.

the cls is a enigma, it sells well in the USA but doesn't do well in the rest of the world. I can appreciate it since it was one of the first cars that was a sedan that had coupe lines and started the whole sedan that looks like a coupe concept.

In that case, the car was a pioneer in its class.
