The new Mercedes-Benz GLC is the successor of the GLK, but also a smaller version of the GLE. The new GLE was this year unveiled as an SUV, but also as a Coupé SUV. This trend was started by BMW with the X6, however they have also gone smaller with the X4. Mercedes-Benz will follow this trend and will also produce a Coupé SUV of their smaller GLC.
The GLC Coupe will get the same styling as its bigger brother with longer taillamp, a sloping roofline and a Mercedes S coupe styled rear window. However the front will still be easily identified as the GLC with the same headlights and bumper designs.
