  • MODEL HISTORY

    Model History

     

    The CL203 Mercedes C-Class Sport Coupé was launched in 2000, and it helped the brand to lure younger buyers who wanted a sporty coupé but couldn’t afford to step up to the more expensive CLK-Class. It was based on the sharp-handling W203 C-Class chassis, and offered all the sporting attributes of rear-wheel drive, with the added benefit of a 3-door lift-back body. When the new W204 C-Class was introduced for 2008, company brass had already decided to build a (more expensive) W204 C-Class Coupé. So to protect its considerable share of the compact sport coupé market (over 320k C203’s had been sold / 45k in Great Britain), Mercedes completely reworked the little Sport Coupé and turned it into the CLC-Class.

     

    Introduced for the 2008 model year, the CL203 Mercedes CLC-Class Sport Coupé boasted over 1100 new components (including a revised cabin and more modern kit). The front end now mirrored the chiselled looks of the W204 C-Class with an upright grille, prominent 3-point star and big projector-beam headlamps. Around back, the Mercedes CLC Sport Coupé got a new tail lamp and bumper assembly that emphasized the car’s width. Add to that, subtle side styling revisions and a new selection of alloy wheels, and you had an athletic sport coupé that blended perfectly with the then-current Mercedes design ethos.

     

    To back up its sporty new looks, the CL203 Mercedes CLC-Class Sport Coupé was given a more precise Direct-Steer variable ratio power steering system that required less steering wheel movement as the speed increased. The body also sat lower to reduce the centre-of-gravity and a recalibrated sport suspension with wide 18-inch wheels meant that the new Mercedes CLC would drive as good as it looked.
