Mercedes-Benz continues its long tradition of dream sports, elegant cars with the new CLE Coupe that leverages design and technological innovations from the C-Class and E‑Class.
With an expressive design, luxurious comfort equipment for maximum personalization and sporty driving performance, the new two-door model from Mercedes-Benz follows its own path. The CLE Coupe market launch begins in Europe in November. The CLE Cabrio will follow next year for open-top enthusiasts.
The new CLE Coupe combines elegant proportions with the modern design line of Mercedes‑Benz. True to the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy, the CLE looks like a sculptural masterpiece, exuding power and dynamism that promise thrills from every angle.
With a length of 4,850 mm, a width of 1,860 mm and a height of 1,428 mm, the new two-door coupe is clearly the largest in the mid-size segment. Thanks to its dimensions – in particular the 25 mm longer wheelbase – the CLE Coupe offers significantly more space than the C-Class Coupe. The rear passengers in particular enjoy more space while the trunk offers 60 liters more.
Inside the car, attention is immediately drawn to the independent 12.3-inch fully digital instrument display, the 11.9-inch center driver display in a vertical layout for more user-friendliness, and the dynamic ambient lighting with 64 colors . If desired, it can be extended from the center console to under the air vents at the edges of the dashboard.
On each door, a strip of light runs along the contour of the armrests and the line at the base of the windows to the rear passenger compartment. Another notable feature is the sporty, single-piece front seats developed specifically for the CLE. For the first time in Mercedes-Benz, the front seats do not release with a lever, but with a very elegant loop made of Nappa leather.
The CLE Coupe gets many of the digital innovations of the new E-Class. With the new electronics architecture and the third generation of the MBUX infotainment system, it is the most intelligent coupé with the star. It offers an amazingly interactive entertainment experience with third-party apps and a new level of personal settings with automated comfort functions (routines).
With many versions and a starting price of 63,300 euros (CLE Coupe 200), the new proposal from Mercedes-Benz comes to win impressions and offer the possibility to those who want to acquire a complete model in every respect.
