Today we managed to snap some photos of the baby CLS, the new CLC. Codenamed C117, this little 4-door Coupe is based on a longer version from the platform made for the new A- and B-Class.
This platform will make it possible to offer both front- and all-wheel-drive versions, and with rumors of a high power AMG version it might be good with all-wheel-drive to be sure to get the power down.
Other engine options will be a petrol engine in two versions, delivering some 121 and 154 horsepower.
Diesel friends will be able to choose between a new 1.8 liter engine delivering two stages of power, 107 or 134 horsepower.
In all cases it will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission or a six-speed manual.
We expect the CLC to hit a show room close to you in 2013 and perhaps a teaser or two at the Frankfurt IAA.
