Spotted testing in the snow, this is the new Mercedes-Benz CLK, due to do battle with BMW’s 3 Series Coupé when it launches early next year.
Based on the new C-Class platform, the CLK will see the quality of interior upped to justify its premium over its saloon sibling.
Under the disguise, the CLK will feature design cues from the C-Class and CLC.
With BMW majoring on the sporty drive, Mercedes-Benz is angling for customers looking for luxury.
Fleet managers will be interested in two Bluetec diesel engines – a 204bhp 2.0-litre and a 3.0-litre with 252bhp.
Prices should start north of £30,000.
