2020 mercedes-benz GLC coupé dynamically drops its roofline rearwards

following the launch of the new ‘GLC‘ SUV, the mercedes-benz ‘GLC coupé’ continues with a more muscularly sculpted exterior but with an added essence of elegance. its more compact form combines the sportiness of a coupé with the functionality of an SUV. the resulting car is distinctive in its pairing of off-road capability and a luxury ride.

the mercedes-benz ‘GLC coupé’ is defined by a dominant front end that matches a powerfully contoured diamond grille with equally as shaped LED headlamps and even standard-fit chrome details like the mudguards. its muscular form continues along the side and shoulders with a feature line and chrome strip. these elegant lines act as a contrast to highlight the smooth surfaces by catching light. starting from the pronounced slope of the A-pillars, the car styles a squat silhouette with a dropping roofline towards the compact rear.



luxury is the main focus in the interior, where flowing lines continue to define its design. the cockpit is aligned to the dashboard and center console, with the latter made from a large, one-piece panel that sweeps from the central air vents to the armrests. its user-friendliness is also showcased with a mutlifunctional steering wheel, touchpad and even infotainment system. this includes larger displays on the instrument cluster and central console. the latest generation of MBUX (mercedes-benx user experience system) provides intuitive interaction and a wide range of sensorial controls.



like the ‘GLC’ SUV, the coupé will be equipped with updated driving assistance systems, which includes exit warning, emergency-corridor, and tail-end-of-traffic functions. their petrol engines will be electrified with the integration of a 49-volt on-board electrical system. this will reduce consumption and CO² emissions whilst enhancing both comfort and performance. mercedes notes that more engine options will be revealed as the coupe’s market launch gets closer.
