We reveal the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, seen here for the first time in production guise. Latest spy pictures.
Set to join its recently launched GLC sibling right at the top of the mid-size premium SUV segment, this is essentially the production version of the similarly called concept revealed at this year’s Shanghai motor show.
From the side, there’s no mistaking the GLC Coupe for anything other than a fully-fledged SUV coupe, complete with an elongated roof which flows seamlessly towards the beautifully sculptured back. In C-Class Coupe fashion, the taillight design apes the S-Class Coupe with its two LED upper strips that act as turn indicators.
Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe doesn’t hold any tech surprises up its sleeve. Set to inherit the same platform shared with its GLC regular SUV and the C-Class, it will also feature an identical engine line-up. Initially, the GLC Coupe will be available with four and six cylinder diesel and gasoline powered units.
Also earmarked for the all-new GLC Coupe is a plug-in hybrid version. Power for the new GLC Coupe 350 e will come from what is essentially the same powertrain used by the C-Class’ eco version: a 2-liter turbo with 211 HP matted to a 60 kw electric engine, for an electric range of 30 km.
