Mercedes-Benz has revealed its next coupe - the GLC - in form of a concept car at the 2015 Auto Shanghai. However, the Concept GLC Coupé is a near-production-standard study that carries the successful GLE Coupé formula over into a more compact segment. Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Concept measures 4.73 meters in length with a wheelbase of 2.83 metre, while riding on large 21-inch wheels with 285/45 R 21 wide-base 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." Talking about the exterior design, it flaunts a twin-blade radiator grille, powerdomes on the bonnet, daytime running lamps, front and rear underbody protection, LED tail lights and a four-pipe exhaust system. Also, it comes with increased ground clearance and side running boards to boost the off-roading capability. The elongated roof line of a sports coupé with integrated roof rails and fully recessed door handles further accentuate the stunning appearance of the new Coupe.

Under the hood, Four-door, four-seater GLC coupé concept vehicle has a 2,996cc V6 biturbo, direct injection engine. It generates a maximum power output of 367bhp and peak torque performance of 520 Nm. This engine is linked to a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system. Apparently, the tailpipes give off either a commandingly subdued rumble or the passionate sound of a high-powered sports car - Depending on the transmission mode setting.
