New Mercedes GLC Coupe spied
A new version of the Mercedes GLC Coupe SUV is coming soon, and we’ve spotted a prototype version during testing
The new Mercedes GLC has already been revealed, and we’ve now been able to get a first look at the upcoming GLC Coupe variant. This model will also be the second-generation model, and like the current version it’s likely to be very closely linked to the normal GLC, but with a slightly different rear-end.
Our spy shots of the new model show the Coupe version’s rear end almost completely undisguised, with just a thin layer of camouflage wrapping over the top. It’s easy to make out the sloping roofline and small boot-lid spoiler.
There’s also a clear window-line that ends in a triangle-shaped rear window at either side, plus large multi-spoke alloy wheels and big plastic wheel arches. The rest of the car looks really similar to the normal GLC that was revealed recently.
That means the GLC Coupe, which is likely to be uncovered in full later this year and go on sale soon after, will probably use the same engines and have the same interior as the GLC SUV.
The new version is likely to have mild hybrid engines alongside some plug-in hybrid models with an electric driving range of around 60 miles. AMG models with more power will arrive later, and we expect them to make use of a hybrid set-up as well. A nine-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive will be standard throughout the range, just like in the GLC.
The cabin will use the latest version of Mercedes’ infotainment system MBUX, which appears on the GLC as well as previous new models from the German maker - including the C-Class and EQE saloons. This has a central screen with all the main functions and a second screen behind the steering wheel for all the essential information you need when driving.
The new Mercedes GLC Coupe is likely to be revealed later in 2022 and be available at the end of this year or the start of next year at a price starting at around £55,000.
