SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class (C 117) out for a stroll on German roads
The Stuttgart-based carmaker is seriously looking to expand its range of future compact models with attractive niche variants intended to bring more young, active clients into acquiring a Mercedes-Benz. After the new A-Class and B-Class are released as flagships of the new market offensive, several new body versions are planned to be unveiled, including a four-dour coupe which should receive the CLC moniker. First captured in June, the heavily-camouflaged test prototypes for the baby CLS have already begun massively populating the streets of Germany, thus entering the primary phase of the long development programme, that could extend up to the spring of 2013. Moreover, after the new CLC-Class is premiered the same year, Mercedes-Benz will reportedly start working on a Shooting Brake variant for it as well, the same move as in the case of the new CLS (see HERE).
