The highly anticipated 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLC sedan is scheduled to make its world debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show according to Mercedes-Benz company officials. The 2013 CLC sedan will have a sloping roofline giving it the coupe styling used by the larger Mercedes CLS sedan.

The CLC’s entry into the market will be the beginning of a push by Mercedes-Benz to enter into the higher-volume, entry-level luxury market that falls just below the current Mercedes C-Class. Executives at Mercedes were quick to emphasize that the 2013 CLC will not be a stripped-down model. “This will be a real Mercedes-Benz,” one executive stressed.

A compact SUV is expected to follow shortly after the CLC and may be called the GLC, although not confirmed. Both the CLC and GLC are expected to ride on the new Mercedes Modular Front Architecture (MFA), an all-new front-wheel drive platform introduced on the latest B-Class hatchback.
