Mercedes GLC Coupe’ body shell reveals sloping roof design – IAB Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Design influenced by GLC Coupe concept.

Mercedes has released a new photo that depicts the body shell of the production Mercedes GLC Coupe being lifted by a robotic arm. The BMW X4’s rival is currently undergoing testing in its final production guise, and is likely to debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next March.

Mercedes GLC Coupe body shell revealed
The body shell of the Mercedes GLC Coupe gives an idea of the sloping roof design, despite which it will reportedly offer 500 liters of luggage space.

Mercedes-Benz Passion blog has also uncovered details on its boot space. Even with a sloped roof, the Mercedes GLC Coupe will offer 500 liters with the seats up and 1,500 liters with the rear seats folded down.

The exterior will look similar to the Mercedes GLC Coupe Concept that the company revealed at the Auto Shanghai 2015, with an arched beltline, sharp cuts on the flanks, and narrow split taillamps.

Mercedes GLC Coupe side spotted testing
The Mercedes GLC Coupe will look like a mini-GLE Coupe with the GLC SUV’s features.

Inside, the GLC Coupe is expected to be virtually identical to the GLC, featuring the same C Class-inspired design, and goodies like a freestanding COMAND infotainment system, ARTICO leather seat upholstery with contrast stitching, a Head-Up display and optional Burmester audio system.

The Mercedes GLC Coupe could also borrow the engine lineup from its more-practical brother, which include 220 d, 250 d, and 250 4MATIC (petrol) variants, capable of 170 PS & 400 Nm, 204 PS & 500 Nm, and 211 PS & 350 Nm, respectively. A GLC 350 e 4MATIC plug-in hybrid model is also on the cards, which has a 211 PS petrol engine and a 116 PS electric motor, offering 34 km pure electric range.
