Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the 2017 GLC Coupe at the ongoing New York Auto Show 2016. We had the chance to have a look at the car at the German carmaker’s booth and the live images can be found below.
The GLC Coupe will go up against the Porsche Macan and the BMW X4 and will sit alongside the GLE Coupe in Mercedes-Benz’s SUV Coupe range. The cabin is similar to the standard GLC crossover, but on the exterior there are several new body panels totally unique to the vehicle. That said, the bonnet, front wings and lower doors have the exact same proportions.
Meanwhile, there are no changes under the hood, so the GLC Coupe comes with the same engine options as the normal GLC. This means the customers will be able to choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 201 hp and a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel motor which comes in two states of tune: 168 hp and 201 hp. Later on this year, more powerful engine variants will be added to the line-up, including the range-topping 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 generating 362 hp, and a plug-in hybrid version.
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive come as standard in all the models.
