    Mercedes B-class Based "Baby CLS" Spied

    Spy-shots of the upcoming “baby” CLS

    The Baby-CLS or BLS/CLC/CLA as some are calling it, was just a rumor back a few months ago when we first reported about it, but as we can see in these exclusive spy-shots, it seems that Mercedes-Benz is going ahead with it’s plan to create a smaller version of legendary CLS.

    It is rumored that the baby-CLS (some are even calling it the 4-door coupe version of the C-Class) will be built on the same architecture as the next-gen B-Class. Front-wheel drive will be available for the standard version, whereas the AMG version will get a all-wheel drive system.

    Not much is known about the drive system, but if rumors are correct, it could come in a 1.6 and 2.0 liter engine, with 150 and 207 horsepower respectively.

    Full post including Spyshots at link above.

    So the B-class, A-class and this CLB or whatever they'll call it will lead Mercedes' push downmarket.

    Few people noticed mercedees' tagline of a handful of years ago as being as intentional as it was : 'in a perfect world, there'd be a mercedes in every driveway'.

    I wonder if the rear seats will fit anyone over 3ft or so in height. Rear headroom is already tight in the much larger CLS as it is.

    Gotta admire how the design comes together (even if it is as recycled as it gets).
