Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV revealed ahead of Beijing Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on April 9, 2014

Ok, the news about the Mercedes-Benz MLC are not quite new as we know that the German carmaker wants to take on the BMW X6 due to the impressive sales of the SUV. Today, Mercedes-Benz revealed the so-called Concept Coupe SUV, a vehicle that previews the upcoming MLC. The new concept was unveiled by Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche at the annual shareholders meeting and according to the reports.

It appears that a production version of this new concept will arrive in 2015. Codenamed C292, the new SUV will be built in the United States, alongside the M-Class. Just like the BMW X6 is based on the X5, the new MLC will be based on the M-Class.

Still, the design of the upcoming MLC will be far more aggressive than the M-Class and listening to Mercedes-Benz, the production version will not be far away from the concept’s looks.

According to Dieter Zetsche, the Concept Coupe provides a realistic glimpse of a series-production vehicle that is expected next year. The Concept Coupe SUV from Mercedes-Benz will make its debut at the Beijing Motor Show later this month, which means that we will reveal you more details and photos very soon.

The production version of the Concept Coupe SUV is expected to use the same petrol and diesel engines found on the M-Class. We do expect a high-performance MLC63 AMG as well as a V12-powered MLC65 AMG.
