Mercedes Benz joins the crossover race with the charming Concept GLC Coupe

When you come to think of it, a crossover is a perfect vehicle to hit the road in. These come with a mixture of car-like drive quality and the looks and power of an SUV, making crossovers an attractive segment in the automotive world. Jumping aboard the crossover bandwagon is German automaker, Mercedes Benz, with plans to give its rival, the BMW X4 a run for its money! The company has unveiled the swanky new GLC Coupe, a muscular and intimidating mini-beast that’s packed with enough punch to make SUV as well as sedan fans happy. The concept Coupe SUV on which the GLC Coupe is based, was unveiled in China last year and the latest three-pointed star release looks ready for the production line.
