What is it?
The Mercedes-Benz CLS's younger sibling, the CSC.
Why is it important?
The CSC is what Mercedes calls a design exercise, but we reckon it figures in the company's plans for India. It's only a concept for now, but all signs point to it being built on the next generation C-Class platform.
The CLS-Class, when it came out, took the market by storm, with manufacturers scrambling to get their own models into that segment. This smaller one hopes to do the same at a more affordable price point. The platform itself will be a front-wheel-drive based one, so this will either come with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive options.
When will India get it?
Late 2014, if our predictions are correct.
