Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Spied Up Close

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is looking like it’s getting ready for its debut.

AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers have caught the upcoming GLC Coupe up close, shedding some of its camouflage and looking production ready. The German automaker previously confirmed the GLC Coupe would be produced after debuting a concept in April 2015 and rumor has it the production model will make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show or the 2016 New York Auto Show.

With the crossover and SUV segment becoming increasingly popular worldwide, it’s no surprise that Mercedes is looking to take advantage by introducing a revamped lineup of models starting with the GLC and GLE from last year.

The GLC Coupe will compete with the BMW X4 and will share its powertrain with the existing GLC, which replaced the GLK in the automaker’s lineup. In the U.S., the GLC is offered in the form of a GLC300 sporting 241 horsepower from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
