The car you see here may be a concept, but it’s on the brink of production. The Concept Style Coupé that highlighted Mercedes-Benz’s Beijing stand offers, the company says, an insight into the next member of its new compact car family. It’s a sporty coupé for the mid-size segment; the production version is due next year under the name CLA. Tech features include a new 155 kW four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and 7G-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission.
And it’s all part of a grand plan, says M-B boss Dieter Zetsche. The Mercedes-Benz 2020 strategy is aimed at getting it to overall leadership – in sales, too – of the premium sector.
