Elegant styling featuresA clear rival for the BMW X6, the Mercedes-Benz's Concept Coupe SUV is described as being as 'sensual as a coupe – visionary as an SUV.' It features muscular wings, large wheel arches, massive 22-inch wheels, high beltline and generous ground clearance.
The four-door, all-wheel drive coupe additionally has a height of just 1.75 metres, a length of almost five metres, and an imposing width of a good two metres thanks to its broad shoulders and flared wheel arches.
The Concept Coupe SUV is also emphasised by the design of the rear end with elements of the design line first presented with the S-Class Coupe, which the company says will be prominent in future models.
The upright sports grille with single louvre is framed by three-dimensional designed all-LED Multibeam headlights which were fitted along with a permanent 4MATIC all-wheel drive system working with a nine-speed automatic transmission with torque convertor lock-up.
Engine specificationsUnder the hood is a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine producing 245 kW at 5 500 rpm and 480 Nm of torque available between 1 400 and 4 000 rpm. The concept uses a double wishbone front combined with a multi-link rear setup and benefits from air suspension with selective damping and an Active Curve System active roll stabilisation.
The production version of the Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV is expected to be unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, in Detroit next year.
