The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is being teased one last time ahead of its official debut.

Set to be introduced at the 2016 New York Auto Show, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will compete with the BMW X4 as a coupe-styled crossover. The model has been spied numerous times ever since the concept debuted last year and is expected to share its powertrain with the existing GLC. That means the base model will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque while a new Mercedes-AMG GLC43 is also likely with 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. The teaser image alludes to an AMG model (look at the licence plate spot).

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe concept originally debuted at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show last April, which means the German automaker moved quickly turning it into a production model. The concept looked production ready, measuring 186.2 inches long while riding on a 111.4-inch wheelbase. Its muscular design hinted that Mercedes wants it to be off-road capable.

The standard GLC has replaced the GLK in Mercedes-Benz’s lineup and is currently available starting from $39,875 including destination.
