Mercedes-Benz will Unveil the New CLE Coupe on July 5

Mercedes-Benz will unveil the CLE coupe, a new model that will replace both the C-Class and E-Class coupes.

  • This new model will replace both the C-Class Coupe and the E-Class Coupe.

  • A convertible version will be added later.

  • The CLE will be available with electrified four and six-cylinder engines.

Mercedes-Benz is in the process of simplifying its internal combustion-powered lineup, but this doesn’t mean new models won’t be added in the coming months.

Indeed, the company chose to reduce its offering by combining a few existing models and replacing them with fewer new ones.

This is why the upcoming CLE will replace both the current C-Class and E-Class Coupes when it arrives in Europe and North America.

From what can be seen in the teaser and the numerous spy shots that have been taken over the past year, the Mercedes CLE’s profile will be similar to that of the brand’s other Coupes, which means we can expect a sleek roofline that flows smoothly into a short decklid.

As for the convertible which will be added later, it will be equipped with a fabric soft top, again, like the models it will replace.

American Dealerships were told by the automaker last year that the CLE will be offered only with an electrified 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine at first, with electrified six-cylinder powertrains planned for a later launch.

This standard powertrain is likely to be the same plug-in unit that can be found under the hood of the C300e, where it delivers 308 horsepower.

According to leaked EPA documents, the CLE will also offer buyers a choice between rear-wheel drive or the company’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

As is usual for Mercedes-Benz, AMG sports models will be included, with an AMG 53 variant having been confirmed.

It is likely that the AMG CLE53 will use a similar powertrain as the current AMG E53, which benefits from the combination of a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six-cylinder engine and a small electric motor that makes for an output of 451 horsepower.

More details about the new CLE and all of its versions will be available very soon since Mercedes-Benz will officially launch the Coupe later this week, on July 5.
