The recently unveiled Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Concept has been recently rendered in a production-ready version.
After it has been officially presented to the public during the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, in a premiere, the newest model to be signed by Mercedes-Benz, the Concept GLC Coupe, is being highlighted once again, this time with the help of a render. The image posted above has been signed by X-Tomi Design and it is showing us how the model may look like in a production-ready variant. This is expected to go on sale next year as a rival for the BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan and it will be following the same path as the GLE Coupe does with the GLE.
The brand new GLC is the renamed version of the GLK, which is in its second generation, and the concept variant stands at 4.73 meters long, with a 2.83 meters wheelbase and 21-inch alloy wheels. The model can be easily differentiated thanks to its evolutionary design, to the LED headlights, the solar beam paint, the matte gun metal plastic body cladding, the recessed door handles, the stacked quad stainless steel pipes, the LED taillights and, of course, the sloping roofline. Under the hood of the concept we can find the 367 HP (270 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque 3.0 liter bi-turbo V6 engine, connected to the 9-speed automatic transmission and sending its power to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
