Mercedes will go on sale. to replace the coupé and convertible of Class C and Class E with the new CLE which will be; always proposed both as a coupé and both as a convertible. We still don't know when the German automaker will bring the new cars. the new models are making their debut but development is continuing. New forklifts of the CLE coupé and convertibles were intercepted in Northern Europe during the classic winter tests that the brands are carrying out in this period.

The spy photos show the cars still camouflaged with the films that cover the bodywork to hide the design details . However, it can be note that these are AMG variants.

ALSO PLUG-IN

In fact, we can note the presence of the "Panamericana" typical of AMG models. A more distinctive front end also stands out. processed with extended air intakes, widened wheel arches, large brake system and 4 tailpipes. Both variants of the CLE will be based on the MRA-2 platform of the new C-Class. The spy photos do not show the interior. However, they should not differ too much from those of the new C-Class. This means that we will find the latest generation of the well-known MBUX system with the instrument cluster featuring a 12.3-inch screen and the actual infotainment system with touch display 11.9-inch vertical.

Since, in this specific case, we are dealing with AMG models, it is necessary to it is probable that the standard equipment also includes the steering wheel and sports seats. As for the engines, at the top of the range it seems that there will be one. the Mercedes-AMG CLE 63 with a Plug-in powertrain, probably that of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S E PERFORMANCE. Indeed, in some of the spy photos of the coupé we can see the charging flap positioned on the rear bumper.

this powertrain means that the CLE will be able to count on 500 kW (680 HP) with 1,020 Nm of maximum torque. It seems that an AMG CLE 43 version with a unit can also be offered on the market. Mild hybrids. All that remains is to wait for news – on the development and presentation of the CLE range.
