What Mercedes Has in Store for Their Upcoming 2024 C Class – It should be interesting to wait for the upcoming 2024 C Class, which is dubbed as a completely new design that would replace the cabriolets and coupes in the E-Class as well as the C-Class. This isn’t precisely a C-Class, but more like a recent CLE, a completely new name within the lineup.
Take a Peek!
From its looks, the so-called 2024 C Class seems like a convertible type and a mid-size ride from Mercy. But then again, it isn’t precisely a C-Class. The CLE would be designed as an all-new ride that would meet the requirements of the premium small (and also mid-size) convertible section. The German brand somehow planned the CLE for their production, and they just had the chance to put the label in the right place.
The Reason for the New Design (and New Name)
The brand has always manufactured premium-quality vehicles, especially with the E-Class Cabriolet, C-Class Cabriolet, and SLC, as the models seem highly likable. Naturally, there are always reasons why a company would have a new model and a new name. But then again, the company needs to figure out a way to offer flexible arrangements without dealing too much with the fuss and production complications.
For premium brands (especially like Mercy), the cabriolet and coupe models are super crucial. These models have their own market in business. They have their purposes as well as niches. And this is why Mercedes wants to create a new name that can combine both models just perfectly without compromising performance, premium reputation, and convenience. With the new CLE on its way, it’s not difficult to see that this new name may be a trending hit when it’s finally launched.
The Upcoming Plan
The CLE is designed as the 2024 model, but before that, Mercy wants to reinvent their (full size) SL as a more purposeful and sportier model. This one would be constructed on a new platform that was developed and managed by AMG.
What about the new CLE? Aside from being completely (and totally) further, it is expected to bring fresh air to the industry. If the previous model was considered less profitable and more cluttered (so people said), the new one is supposed to transform such a condition. BMW had previously dealt with the same issue, and now the BMW 4 Series is entirely different from the 3 Series.
Construction and Design
Likely, the CLE would still be constructed on the MRA-2 platform, which is similar to the new C-Class as well as the S-Class. It won’t be using the AMG architecture (which is used by the SL). The MTA-2 is pretty flexible, meaning that you can enjoy six and also four-cylinder units.
If the C-Class inspires the CLE, the CLE would likely come with a four-cylinder engine with a 2.0-liter capacity. It’s also possible to have a straight-six turbocharged unit with a 3.0-liter capacity. Since there is no detailed info about the 2024 C Class, we need to wait and see.
