Mercedes-Benz’s BMW X4 rival, the GLC Coupe, is about to be unveiled. The company didn’t say when, but they confirmed that the premium compact SUV coupe is “coming soon”.
So, should we perhaps look for it at next month’s New York Auto Show? Probably, although it might debut online a few days earlier. Until its official presentation however, the automaker has brought the 2020 GLC Coupe forward in a video teaser.
The footage previews the front end and rear ends, the former appearing similar to that of the regular GLC facelift. Meanwhile, the rear appears to feature slightly updated taillights.
Just like the 2020 GLC, the refreshed GLC Coupe won’t get any dramatic visual changes, as Mercedes didn’t want to mess with a winning recipe.
Besides the usual trim updates and new wheels, the 2020 GLC Coupe will get the optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a free-standing display in the middle of the dashboard, available in two sizes: 7 and 10.25 inches. If it stays true to the GLC, then it will also adopt a new multi-function steering wheel as well, along with the touchpad on the center console and other amenities found in its facelifted sibling.
Just like the 2020 GLC, the Coupe will likely be sold in 300 RWD and 4Matic AWD spec in the United States. The former uses a 255 hp (259 PS / 190 kW) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, which makes it 14 hp (14 PS / 10 kW) more powerful than the outgoing iteration.
The AMG models are expected to join the lineup later on, in 63 and 63 S and 43 guise.
