The new-look Mercedes CLC two-door coupe is in European showrooms next month, featuring new engines, modernised chassis and revised interior, dpa reported.

Two diesel and four petrol engines are available. The diesels come either with a 90 kW/122 hp motor or 110 kW/150 hp engine. Fuel consumption is listed at between 5.8 and 6.3 litres with a carbon dioxide emission of 152 to 166 grammes per kilometre.

The petrol engines range between 105 kW/143 hp to 200 kW/272 hp. The most powerful version has a top speed of 250 kilometres an hour but with a fuel consumption of only 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres.

According to Mercedes, fuel consumption has on average been reduced by 10 per cent compared to the outgoing model.

Mercedes designers have completely redesigned the front and rear so that the Sports Coupe embodies the new Mercedes design with a distinctive coupe radiator grille featuring the large Mercedes star in the centre.

The interior comes with sports seats offering better lateral support, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, automatic climate control and brushed aluminium trim elements.

The entry level model in Germany is priced at 28,113 euros (44,800 dollars).
