Mercedes-Benz CLC.

If you're reading this in the United States, odds are you have never heard of a Mercedes CLC. Yet look at the photo below and you'll think "wow, this looks oddly familiar."

It's actually the old generation C-Class coupe. It was discontinued in the U.S. but kept around and vaguely redesigned in Europe. This particular one is equipped a 2.2 CDI engine.

what a failure of an automobile. Who buys this garbage?

Twenty-some-odd year olds who want to be seen in a new Benz without paying for a proper one.

It's also a very nice to drive hatchback. There are precious few rear-drive hatchbacks out there, particularly if you want something that you can actually have a chance of getting parts or service for.

You have a good point on the RWD, but in my experience with them they are not very well built.
