CLE is very old news, i would say about a year old..but i doubt this even was a real model, it makes less sense since CLK is primarily the same thing, until they dicontinue the CLK or start using CLS as the base for the next CLK...

CLS is based on E-class

CLK is based on C-class

Yes,

But if that might not be correct news, then what IS this car seen testing?


What's the point of a coupe-like C-class, if the CLK is aldready there?

It's like the B-class, filling no segment, and answering nobody's question.

the car that was seen testing was the W204 c-class sedan the CLE that i posted about was supposet to follow in the footsteps of the cls class but based on the next gen C. they already have a c-class coupe so this might be a replacement for that.
