    Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    Hey guys,

    so just looking at the new CLC, yes its just the new not so well doing C-class coupe. Im seriously wondering what MB was thinking. The car has a 100% lifted C-class front, same exact roof line and side window line, so really its a [beep] facelift at best... and then they had to give it a new rear design, which they seem to have given the sick intern on a friday night before heading home. Its so out of place, not very MB like. Just seems like NO thought was out into it.. just has huge lights that just look like being very similar to the B-class lights, which is a family Van for old people! Im so disappointed in the rear. oh yeah the price for a CLC160, most basic and under powered car in the list, is like 26000 euro in germany

    what was MB thinking
    or why weren't they thinking at all

    juck, from the side...

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    at least you can now put pictures up from other nice coupes passing you i guess..

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    not bad, but its a benz... should be nicer, unique to c-class if you're gonna name it CLC..

    Must have designed and built in China

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    and here MBs sketchy coupe lineup is.. i find it interesting that they took such a huge risk in this whole segment.

    First, there is the CLC.. which you get from the above mentioned comments and posted pictures.

    Then, we have the CL, which i personally love, but which has gotten a lot of skeptical comments due to looks and sheer size.

    Then their flagship coupe, isn't really a coupe just a rounder E class.. although having the name CL (which is nicer) and S (which is nicer, and above it)
    I guess it fits between the E and S... so why CLS???

    anyways im just wondering about MB model range strategy here. cause new SL, which i think should be mentioned in the coupe thing, is just a facelift of the old one.. and a lazy one at that.. i hope all the design team has been focussing on the new E, which comes out soon!!!

    just my two cents.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    The attempt of reviving that interior using old molding equipment was F-U-T-I-L-E.

    LOL, and I thought the old SC was a lesson learned, in design department at least.
    Didn't see this one comming and then WHAM round the corner it comes in all its uglyness.

    ML,S,CL,SL,CLS are Mercedes Benz, the rest should be rebranded!

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    This prev C-based coupe ( I prefer to call it the MBZ Scirocco ) was a sales disaster for MBZ here in the US market a few years ago . So....let's make another one !

    yeah, exactly, thats why it probably shouldnt be the same exact car... makes no sense..

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    OMG, it's based on the OLD platform and uses the OLD interior? That interior looks 10 years old.

    This is joke, right?!?!?

    Im afraid not buddy

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    Your kidding me. You mean that this isn't some test mule they forgot to junk!

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    It's just a facelifeted version of the cheapest car they make. Pathetic I must say... but hey, some people will do anything to say they drive a Merc or Porsche/etc...

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    What a joke. I guess none of us here will be buying one!

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..


    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    Aweful looking car but, believe it or not, the current model has already sold very well here in the UK so I'm not surprised MB kept it.

    I like the memory card - I imagine it's for downloading mp3s to the car... wish PAG would wake up to the hi-tech world we live in which revolves heavily around interacting with our PCs/Macs.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    I don't mind the whole concept of a c class hatch, but I cannot believe they are just facelifting it!

    Merc is facelifting anything they can lay their hands on.

    It seems they want to get rid of those "4-eyes" front by any means possible.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    Mercedes is, as being said, targeting younger customers with this model Since it is a matter of price I am by no means surprised they based it on the previous models. Those molds surely aren't at the end of their lifespan.

    I am a bit surprised about the tail as well, I have the feeling one can sense that they were targeting (primarily US) customers of Japanese brands.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    5 second PS in paint does this.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    Its difficult to be diplomatic about the car. Its is the ultimate pointless car. For its likely cost, there will be far better alternatives.

    Re: Mercedes CLC?? must be a joke right..

    The CLC is a BMW 1-series and Audi A3 competitor.
