announcing the possible expansion of mercedes-benz’s uniform off-roader family during the 2014 beijing motor show, the concept coupé SUV illustrates a sporty and dynamic study of the german manufacturer’s ‘on-road line’ – GLA, GLK, M, GL and G-class. designed with a flowing side line, stretched greenhouse and radiator grille with central chrome louvre, the compact all-wheel drive sports utility vehicle places emphasis on the rear-end styling of the S-class coupé. the concept is finished using an ‘alu-beam’, which is reminiscent of the silver arrows of the 1930s and 1950s.

  • Love my Mercedes but the back of this concept, not the one in the last rendering, looks like the latest Lincoln.
    Unappealing. The last rendering looks like a Passat
