Baby Benz Coupe Coming, But Not to U.S.?

Follow Marty



With Mercedes-Benz and BMW going coupe crazy, it's no surprise that this morning's online edition of Autocar illustrates a new two-door spun from the Mercedes A-Class.

The Brit car mag promises the new coupe will join the Mercedes lineup by 2011, and we're guessing that since the U.S. doesn't get the A-Class to begin with, this new two-door will stay far away from America, too.

Nonetheless, Autocar's sketch looks pretty -- and the appearance of a new two-door will help Mercedes take on BMW in the race to the bottom of the car totem pole. BMW's 1-Series coupe has likely convinced its rivals in Stuttgart that the coupe market is promising at the entry level.

Autocar suspects that Mercedes will eventually replace its CLC coupe with this new vehicle. And it also predicts Mercedes will add a new small sport-utility vehicle around the same time frame, as BMW is also planning a new X1 SUV and MINI ute.

The new Mercedes coupe may be dubbed CLA, Autocar concludes, and will also get competition from new two-doors at Saab and Alfa Romeo.

  2. What? I guess when they see what a total flop the 1 series will be they'll be glad that they stayed home. (NOT!)

  4. Better be affordable. Stopped by my BMW dealer and saw a 135 for over $42000.00 and after I came out of shell shock, I went back to VW and bought a 2008 R32 that has all wheel drive, nav, heated seats, DSG trans, Xenon, auto wipers, leather interior, and more interior space for $10000 less.
