The consolidation of SUVs is leading some car manufacturers to restructure their product range, which is why we see fewer and fewer minivans or sedans in the D segment. mercedes depends, and a lot, on his SUV family and for this reason he decided put an end to two models that will soon say goodbye to the market: the C-Class and the E-Class in their Coupé and Cabrio bodies.
Available with convertible body
With this movement, the star firm does not want to forget all those customers who have been attracted by the two models. We have the best proof of this with the recent images sent to us by our spies stationed in Germany. If you look at it from a distance it could be the new C-Class Coupé and if you look at it closer many would think it is the new generation of the E-Class Coupé. No wonder then this car replaces both and its name clearly indicates it: Mercedes CLE.
Based on the MRA-2 platform which brings models such as the Mercedes C-Classthe CLE will offer proportions similar to those of the house’s mid-size sedan and will also be available in convertible format, with a fabric roof as its main feature. This new product will sport its own aesthetic, with thinner headlights and a sportier silhouette. than that of the aforementioned class C.
The car’s sloping roofline and that tailgate with a kind of spoiler integrated into the rear add to the sporty look of the model. The rear bumper lacks cutouts for the exhaust outlets, indicating that this is a non-AMG variant. The new CLE is also expected to borrow the interior design of the aforementioned midsize sedan, with occasional tweaks to differentiate itself..
Will have AMG versions
This shared architecture probably means the presence of the same powertrains as the C-Class. Customers can also expect high-performance versions such as the CLE 43 and CLE 53 AMG, as well as a CLE 63 that will inherit the same 600+ hp hybrid powertrain from the next one. Mercedes-AMG C 63.
Mercedes hasn’t said when it will unveil the CLE in its two body styles, but everything indicates that the presentation will take place at the end of 2022. If so, the first units of this new product should arrive in dealerships in the first quarter of 2023. The AMG variants will take a little longer to arrive, possibly delayed until 2024. Production will take place in the AMG plant in Bremen, Germany.
