Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled the photos of its Concept GLC Coupe. A teaser image of the concept SUV was also shown through a tweet of the Stuttgart-based auto manufacturer hours prior to the vehicle’s official public debut.
The upcoming compact SUV certainly showed a striking resemblance with the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, which production just started at the Tuscaloosa plant of the three-pointed star marque. The GLC Coupe is more like a toned down or more compact form of the GLE Coupe.
According to the press release of Daimler, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will measure 4.73-meter long with a 2.83-meter wheelbase and 1.60-meter height. It is designed to be fitted with 21-inch wheels for off-road travels.
The hood of the standard Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will house a 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine with 367 hp and 520 Nm of torque. The power of the crossover will be distributed through a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission gearbox mated with a 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system.
The company revealed that the Mercedes GLC Coupe will be offered in seven models. Among the mentioned plans for the variants of the SUV is a Shooting Brake unit that will join the likes of the CLS and CLA series of the brand.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is scheduled to make its first public appearance at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show this week.
