The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé is the Three-point star’s next generation of SUV as it combines the sportiness of a coupé with the functionality of an SUV. The GLC Coupe is part of the GLC line-up, which include four other major Mercedes SUV line-ups, including the GLA, GLE, GLS and G-Class.
The GLC Coupe’s front end is more aggressive aided by contoured radiator grille, air intakes, LED headlights and chrome details on the underride guards (front and rear). Its coupé character shines through in the squat silhouette with the dropping roof line and rounded rear window.
Profile of the GLC Coupe is accentuated by the dropping roof line, chrome strip on the high beltline, broad shoulders and rearwards-ascending light-catching contour. And of course, the high ground clearance.
