    • If the C117 CLA45 AMG were "true" coupe - 2-door CLA45 AMG rendering

      The new C117 CLA-Class takes the Mercedes "four door coupe" niche started with the CLS-Class and takes it to the entry level. The car is a four door coupe but what if it were to be a two door? What would it look like? Well, the rendering shows what the CLA would look like were a two door. In all honesty, the sloping rear design just does not seem to work as well with the two door. Like the CLS, the car simply seems to work best around the four door coupe design.

      Some designs simply work better with four doors. The CLA seems to be one although the thought of an entry level high performance Mercedes-Benz coupe certainly is appealing and a good idea.

        MB should do a CLA coupe and a CLS coupe to pin it against the 6 series

        This is trying too hard, the C63 coupe looks a lot better

        Apples to oranges. The CLA Coupe would be more like a 1 series/2 series coupe. The C63 coupe is targeted at the M3

        He's just referring to the overall look not which one is going up against which.

        Too much going on with the rear. IMO it would have to be shortened to look right.

        I agree. The design just doesn't transfer well to two doors.
