Despite the fact that Mercedes wants to simplify the pattern of recognition, the idea behind the change remains unclear, as they have not yet announced the future names of the two-doored and Cabriolet of the A-Class model. It is possible that one of these variants can get the name of CLB. The letter «B» theoretically will be used for models such as the A- and B-Class, which are built on a modular platform. In addition, according to the publication Car, «four-door coupe» CLS will retain its current name, despite the fact that this model is based on the E-Class.
