Mercedes' New Concept Coupé Shows Off in a Fresh Batch of Selfies and Video

If you wanted a better look at the new Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupé, here’s your chance before the sporty SUV bows to the crowd of the 2014 Beijing Auto Show on April 20, as a fresh assortment of press images made it online this morning. The Concept Coupé is a thinly disguised version of an upcoming production SUV from Mercedes based on the ML-Class’s underpinnings that will bring the fight to the BMW X6, itself preparing for a second generation within the next year. Earlier this month, Mercedes announced the concept during the Annual Shareholder’s Meeting of Daimler AG in Berlin, where company boss Dieter Zetsche said: “With the Concept Coupé SUV we aim to secure new customers by opening up new segments for Mercedes-Benz. We see a great deal of potential for Mercedes-Benz in the combination of coupé and SUV.” Very few details have been shared about the car at this point, but a short press statement from Mercedes mentioned that, “the sportily styled coupé study with the added value of an SUV provides a realistic glimpse of a series-production vehicle expected next year, which will boast very dynamic handling.” By John Halas
