Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Review
By satya sruthi On 13 Aug, 2016  


We have already driven the GLE Coupé and that car's been launched in India too. Now we are all set for the smaller coupé SUV from Mercedes-Benz - the GLC Coupé. And I am in North Italy's Aosta valley to test the car. There are a lot of these coupé SUV's that are set to make an appearance very soon, and not just from the premium brigade but also from the mass brands. Mercedes-Benz and BMW have the lead over everyone else with Land Rover and Audi scrambling to catch up. The GLC Coupé already has one direct rival in Europe - the BMW X4 - a car we are not going to be getting in India anytime soon. But the GLC Coupé will come, so that's something to look forward to.
The car I've got with me is the GLC 300 4Matic Coupé (it's the petrol variant, and is the one to be launched in India). Now, I have to say, this is the most proportionate coupé SUV that I can think of and it is really nice to look at, especially at the rear (yes, I am saying that!).
Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Rear
The roof comes down nice and gentle, it's a short stubby boot and yet it's not too tall. The rear incorporates what's becoming a hallmark of all coupés from Mercedes-Benz - and that's the signature tail light treatment, that looks really sharp. I don't love the exaggerated chrome strip on the boot lid though, and think it's a little overdone. It stands 1602 mm high and 4732mm long. That means it is 42 mm lower and 80 mm longer than the regular GLC. The fact that the car sits lower than the GLC is intentionally done by both the stylists and the engineers, because the lower height also gives the car a sportier dynamic.
