Good looks, comfortable interior, well-equipped
Restricted rear visibility, not great value for money new, wooden steering, cramped rear seats
The CLC is the cheapest Mercedes-Benz coupe on sale and offers buyers affordable access to a sporty premium car. Despite a name change and more than 1000 new components, it's essentially a facelifted C-Class Sports Coupe with revised engines. Changes also include all-new front and rear styling and a refreshed interior. Mercedes-Benz hopes to snare younger buyers with the compact coupe and retain their custom when the time comes to upgrade.
It offers sporty styling, agile handling and good equipment levels and will rival the likes of the popular BMW 1-Series and Audi A3.
