With the Mercedes-Benz GLC having officially been revealed recently, attention turns to its four-door “coupe” variant.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe made its debut in concept form in April as a competitor to the BMX X4 and now AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers have caught it testing for the first time. The prototype undergoing testing doesn’t stray very far from the concept, although it does have softer lines. The front is similar to the GLC-Class, which replaces the outgoing GLK. It features a rounded front end, a massive grille and sleek headlights. Where the GLC Coupe changes in style is behind the B-pillar, where the roof slopes dramatically towards the rear windshield and liftgate.
The back of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe spied is heavily camouflaged, but it does appear to borrow some design cues from the S-Class Coupe, with wide tail lights and a flat rear end. Expect powerplants to be shared with the standard GLC when the GLC Coupe makes its debut, meaning in the U.S. it will launch with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Eventually joining the lineup will be a GLC250d diesel and GLC350e plug-in hybrid. Look for the model’s official debut to take place early next year.
