The newest model to be signed by the 3-pointed star company, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Concept, will be making its public debut at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, on Monday.
If you have no clue on what the GLC is, we will remind you the renaming scheme performed by Mercedes-Benz where the ML became the GLE and it gave birth to the GLE Coupe, a true rival for the BMW X6. The GLC is the successor of the GLK and in the GLC Coupe version it is aimed towards models such as the BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan. The vehicle in question is currently coming in a concept form and it will stand below the GLE Coupe in the company’s lineup, being underpinned by the same architecture as the W205 C-Class generation.
As you can see from the teaser image which has been posted above, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Concept will be getting the wide grille design with the large centrally positioned 3-pointed star badge and it is believed that the interior design will be similar to the regular version the GLC. The engine lineup will also be shared between the two models and this will include petrol and diesel burners but don’t act too surprised if a plug-on hybrid will be offered too. Chances are we will get to see a GLC Coupe 63 AMG version too, but this hasn’t been confirmed at this time. More details on the GLC Coupe Concept remain unknown and will be announced during the automotive event in Shanghai, on the 20th of April.
