Known simply as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz MLC up until now, there is a possibility that the BMW X6 rivalling SUV will instead by dubbed the ML Coupe.
While we’ll have to wait a little longer to see if this is correct, it definitely seems quite likely considering the German firm’s tendency to call its coupe models…you guessed it, coupes like the C-Class Coupe or S-Class Coupe etc.
What we do know for a certainty is that the new SUV will resemble the Concept Coupe SUV from the Beijing Motor Show very closely. A recent prototype was spotted in heavy camouflage, but the same overall shape was present. However, as is typically the case, the production-spec Mercedes-Benz ML Coupe 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 ML Coupe 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 ML 63 AMG Coupe and an ML 65 AMG Coupe powered by a V12 engine!
The Mercedes-Benz ML Coupe 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!
