It has only been less than a month since Mercedes-Benz revealed its GLC Coupe Concept through a sketch, official photos, and a live model at the Shanghai Motor Show. Just a few days ago, IndianAutosBlog featured spy photos of the prototype standard SUV of the same range with only a little camouflage.
According to the source, the Mercedes-Benz GLC spy shots came from one of its readers. It also mentioned that the pictures were taken along the Stuttgart headquarters of Mercedes.
As seen in the photos above, only the headlights, taillights and bumpers of the Mercedes-Benz GLC were hidden from view, thanks to the camo wrap. However, the rest were visible to the eyes.
Based on what we are seeing so far, its styling really does look pretty much the latest C-Class of the brand, and less boxy than the existing GLK. The prototype appears to use a rear wheel drive MRA architecture, and its body armor consist of lighter but more resilient combination of steel and aluminum.
Though we have no clear view of the SUV’s interior, it is expected to carry the same elements found on the C-Class. Even the engines options and gearbox available to the C-Class are likely to be adopted by the GLC.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC might be launched before the current year ends. So, it will certainly be carrying a 2016 model year.
