First pictures of the new BLS!
Link: 2013 Mercedes-Benz BLS spied for first time
BLS is a really bad name. Because, it reminds me of one of the most pointless cars ever made.
BLS,GLS,SLS,CLS,GLK,SLK,SLC.BLK, .. i think Mercedes should clean this naming mess. One letter should inform about class/size , and other about version (coupe,sport, offroad) otherwise nobody will understand this
I just hope it doesn't stray too far from the concept version. The interior must be on point also.
Looks very small hey...Again it looks a huge overhang.
Merc which concept you mean..
MB F800 Style Concept

That will work for a FWD Mercedes. The interior is critical though, it can't be a cheapout special.
F800 yeah if its simalar to that then wow..That would pick up a lot off youg customers no doubt.
FFranek those look very good...
wow nice chop.. that name has to go though
Couldnt this be the next c-class ???
according to AutoBild it will be called CLC coupe, and cars from this new platform should start from 20.000 euro
Stunning. An A5 Sportback rival. Those tail lights are brilliant and probably the most distinctive I've seen from MB in the past year or so. I smell a gold mine though I have to admit that I didn't expect to see mules this year.
i think those pictures from first post shows CLC mule
Mercedes is really going to milk this platform for all its worth to recoup what must be a huge initial investment. A 3-door hatch, 5-door hatch, B-Class breadvan, a small SUV and this...a smaller CLS. I see only the small SUV and CLS coming to the U.S. Maybe the 3-door hatch in AMG trim, maybe.
It will be called CLC
It's far too small to be an A5 Sportsback rival. The A5 is a behemoth.
The mule's proprotions look WIERD! Still I'm hoping this is a very attractive little 4 door coupe. If it is it will FLY out the door. NO ONE has yet brought coupe style with 4 door practicality to this price point. The VW CC doesn't count because its a blatant CLS rip off and barely looks like a coupe.
Being front wheel drive I hope the dynamics are as well resolved as they should be on a Benz. They seem to be nailing it with their rear drive vehicles, I hope we don't have to put up with a whole generational learning curve before they get this right.
BLS sounds like a sandwich. Bacon, lettuce and salami. ukeface:
The Auto Bild images of the red car are just an artist's rendition commissioned by Auto Bild (though Auto Bild usually has a bit of insider information to guide the artist's design).
I have a hard time believing they would add a 4-door model that is "almost as long as the C-Class" (per Auto Bild) just around the time the all-new C-Class is due.
I think it is much more likely that what we see here is in fact an early version of the next C-Class, and that there is no "BLS" or "CLC".
