The CLC is the cheapest Mercedes-Benz coupe on sale and offers buyers affordable access to a sporty premium car. Despite a name change and more than 1000 new components, it's essentially a facelifted C-Class Sports Coupe with revised engines.

3.5 out of 5

The CLC is the cheapest Mercedes-Benz coupe on sale and offers buyers affordable access to a sporty premium car. Despite a name change and more than 1000 new components, it's essentially a facelifted C-Class Sports Coupe with revised engines. Changes also include all-new front and rear styling and a refreshed interior. Mercedes-Benz hopes to snare younger buyers with the compact coupe and retain their custom when the time comes to upgrade.

It offers sporty styling, agile handling and good equipment levels and will rival the likes of the popular BMW 1-Series and Audi A3.

What owners say...

 Good space in the back and boot for a small coupe.

 The driving experience is, for me, brilliant. Parking sensors are the best I have experienced.

 Good flexibility with the fold flat rear seats and easier to get in and out of the back than the BMW. But do miss the remote control boot that the BMW Compact had.
