Mercedes Unveils the new CLC-Class
A couple of weeks ago, Mercedes presented the 2008 CLC-Class which is destined to replace and to be a successful successor of the C-Class Sports Coupe. The new model is based on the old one, but the new generation looks good so they probably knew what to do with the design.
The sharp face of the new CLC, the taillights and the interior are the most important upgrades and they rely on these qualities to revive the C-Class. The car features communication and navigation system which can be voice-operated, also iPod integration and microSD card-slot can be an entertainment.
For the C-Class, Mercedes prepared four engines, two gas and two diesel, both with the latest technology in fuel economy. Customers can choose from three different gearbox configurations, six-speed manual, five-speed automatic for 4-cylinders engine and the famous seven-speed automatic gearbox for 6-cylinders engine. Also buyers can opt for a sports package which consists of 18-inch wheels and paddle shifters for automatic transmission.
Mercedes-Benz announced that the cars will be available for shipping for European market as of May 2008.
