Mercedes-Benz to extend GLC model lineup with Coupe variant

Mercedes-Benz will not only be revealing an AMG variant of the GLC it seems. With just a few days before the start of the 2016 New York International Auto Show, the automaker recently revealed a design sketch of the GLC Coupe.

The company did not reveal much about the upcoming model but Mercedes-Benz did state it will be the 'sports car of SUVs'. Based on the image itself, it gets the brand’s distinct diamond radiator grill, wraparound projector headlights and what looks to be an AMG-derived front bumper.

Over to its side, it gets a set of large black alloy wheels, defined wheel arches and character lines. Its roofline, on the other hand, is reminiscent of the GLE Coupe’s design.

It is set to make its world debut on March 23, 2016 alongside the refreshed CLA and Mercedes-AMG E43.
