    Mercedes readying a CLC and AMG A Class? Rendering of entry level four door coupe

    Autoweek is reporting that Mercedes plans an entry level 4 door coupe as well as AMG A class. The CLC may be based on the new A class and an AMG variant may come as well. The powertrain would likely be the same dual clutch transmission that Mercedes plans to use in their GLC (entry level SUV slotted below the GLK). What we have to wonder is if the A class will make it to the USA this time as the CLC is a sure bet.

    Those first 2 first look great. So it will probably have the 5.5 TT V8?

    Looks great, mercedes style and pedigree is definately being implemented here.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    the CLC is going to be a 1 series and A3 competitor. I doubt that it will get the V8 TT.
