SE has replaced Classic, Elegance is Elegance and Sport has replaced Avantgarde, although I prefer Avantgarde to Sport as previously Sport was an Avangarde with some standard options that you couldn't change.

I must say........ the interior, did'nt look like a UK sport, to me.

I saw lots of CLK's ........ but little else.

Sport has lowered and stiffened suspension, Avangarde used to be just lowered.

previously W202 & W203
It's fairly common for the spec in other European countries to be lower than in the UK, which does make price comparisons rather difficult.
I believe that it may be something to do with the historical dominance of the company car market here, whereas on the mainland more people part with their own money to buy them.
Anyway what is it that les anglais have against the French? - great people - look after themselves (pensions, working hours, real lunch breaks etc) and don't take s**t from anyone ! :cool:
