Mercedes-Benz MLC Continues Testing

The upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC has been spied testing again and while hiding under camouflage, looks remarkably similar to the Concept Coupe SUV from the Beijing Motor Show last month.

As the above image shows, the prototype is wearing heavy camouflage across pretty much every body panel. As a result, it is hard to determine just what visual changes will be included in its final design to differentiate it from the concept and make it more viable for everyday road use.

However, as is typically the case, the production-spec Mercedes-Benz MLC will feature redesigned bumpers both front and rear as well as larger wing mirrors. It is also likely that slightly tweaked headlights and taillights will feature.

The production-spec Mercedes-Benz MLC will rival the BMW X6 and is expected to be available with a host of different engines. For starters, both petrol and diesel V6 engines are expected alongside a very economical hybrid. At the top of the range, we can expect to see a V8 powered MLC 63 AMG and an MLC 65 AMG powered by a V12 engine!

The Mercedes-Benz MLC will of course be just the latest model in the German firm’s ever increasing stable of SUVs which could soon spawn a GLA Coupe as well as a line of ‘on-road’ SUVs!
