GLC Coupé

Assuming Merc’s GLS-Class and the S-Class Coupe got married and had a kid, it’ll be the GLC Coupe. Despite being jacked up a couple of inches and being termed SUV, the GLC Coupe oozes x-factor.

It also has more pronounced AMG Line exterior, adding a greater sense of sportiness while setting it apart from the rest. The LED headlights on the GLC Coupe are Merc’s Intelligent Light System, which includes active light and dynamic range adjustment with cornering light function as well. 20″ inch AMG wheels completes its physique.
