Mercedes-Benz Concept GLC Coupe debuts at Auto Shanghai

Mercedes-Benz Concept GLC Coupe is a smaller brother to the already unveiled GLE Coupe, which rivals the BMW X6.

The Concept GLC Coupe is based on the upcoming second-generation GLC crossover, which in its first generation is known as GLK.

The more compact GLC Coupe concept is near-production-standard study going against the BMW X4, when it arrives in production form sometimes in 2016.

The styling is very similar to the GLE Coupe just in a more compact packaging. We can see a twin-blade radiator grille, power domes on the bonnet and a four-pipe exhaust system at the rear. There are also front and rear underbody protection, increased ground clearance and side running boards. All this rides on big 21-inch tyres.

Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG, puts it in a nutshell: “With its modern and sensual design idiom, the Concept GLC Coupé gives a foretaste of future SUV models from Mercedes-Benz. At the same time, it embraces the typical values of tradition-steeped Mercedes-Benz coupés”.

The Concept GLC Coupe is 4.73 metres in length and has a 2.83 metre wheelbase. Height on the vehicle is just 1.60 metres and with a sloping roofline and recessed door handles looks very sleek.

The concept is powered by a 362bhp 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine with 384 lb-ft of torque linked to a nine-speed automatic transmission sending power to a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

The production version is expected to debut later this year or in early 2016.
