Mercedes-Benz has released a series of images direct from the New York International Auto Show showing the world premiere of the dynamic and stylish new GLC Coupé.
The concept version of the GLC Coupe was unveiled in Shanghai last year, and this is the first time we’re seeing the full production model. This new model in Mercedes-Benz’s expanded SUV range blends SUV size and performance with the design of a coupe, resulting in a car that the company believes represents the brand’s bipolarity.
On the front you can see an SUV with a large raked diamond-style grille around the Mercedes-Benz badge, large side air intakes and the distinctive Mercedes lighting. On its side, the GLC Coupé measures 1.6 meters high – obviously an SUV feature – with a rear that is built more like a coupe. Side running boards and wheels with a size of up to 20 inches are optionally available.
When it was first released, there were eight variants of the GLC Coupé with four petrol engines and four diesel options.
Daimler design chief Gorden Wagener described it as “hot and cool” and says that the car shows the Mercedes-Benz style philosophy and embodies contemporary luxury at the same time.
