Mercedes reveals first images of its renewed BMW 1-series-rivalling hatchback
10 January 2008

These are the first official images of the new Mercedes CLC – the car that will replace the Mercedes C-Class Sports Coupé.It will make its debut at the Berlin Fashion Week between 27-31 January, where it will also appear with Eva Padberg; the model used in the teaser photos as the most tasteful car disguise we've ever seen.The CLC will form the entry-level coupé in Mercedes' lineup, but contrary to appearances it will not be based on the new C-Class. Mercedes has chosen to base the car on the old C-Class structure, with only the external design taken from the new model. It's also likely that the CLC will use the same engine range as the new C-Class saloon.We'll have to wait until the end of the month for full details and images of the CLC, though there's no promise of the same in depth analysis of Eva Padberg. Sorry.
