Mercedes launches its Answer to the Coupe-suv CRAZE
matic transmission. Mercedes claims that these factors combine to provide a superior ride comfort with decidedly sporty agility.
“The GLC Coupé reflects our iconic Mercedes-benz coupé design while symbolising the bipolarity of our brand – it is ‘hot and cool’,” said Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG. “With its design idiom of sensual purity, it perfectly embodies our styling philosophy while at the same time representing contemporary luxury.”
The Coupé is almost eight centimetres longer and some four centimetres lower than the standard GLC, with which it shares its basic architecture. But the A-pillar is less steeply raked, while the continuation of the roof outline is lower, terminating in the elegantly flowing, muscular rear end typical of a coupé. The rear window dispenses with a wiper, as the airflow does not break away until after the spoiler lip, which means that water is unable to strike the rear window.
