Mercedes Concept Coupe Previews MLC SUV

This is the first photo of the new Concept Coupé SUV Mercedes-Benz will unveil at the Beijing auto show.

Based on the ML, the Concept Coupe is Mercedes-Benz’s answer to the BMW X6, with a shallow glasshouse and steeply raked backlight. The high-riding SUV aims to appeal to customers in emerging markets such as China and other BRIC markets, where wealthy consumers are keen to accept a vehicle that places more emphasis on style over substance.

Codenamed the C292 internally, the production version will likely be called the MLC when it makes its debut in 2015. And as with other recent concept cars from Mercedes, we expect it to look near identical to this concept precursor.
