The all-wheel drive Concept Coupé SUV stands at around 1.75 m (5.75 ft) tall, almost 5 m (16 ft) in length and has a width of about 2 m (6.5 ft). The four-door coupe is finished in Mercedes' chrome "Alu-Beam" in a tip of the hat to the company's iconic SIlver Arrow of the 1930s and '50s.
The Coupé SUV bears an upright sports grille flanked by all-LED Multibeam headlamps and illuminated side sills that are a step away from the GLA SUV and are designed to resemble those of a typical SUV or off-road vehicle.
The rear end emphasizes the sports and luxury factor of the vehicle, borrowing design elements from the S-Class Coupé with a slim band of rear lights and a registration plate integrated with the bumper. All of this sits atop flush-fitted 22-inch wheels fitted with 305/45 R 22 tires. A variable dynamic control system, dubbed "Dynamic Select Control," enables four different transmission modes with a programmable setup.
Mercedes hasn't revealed any performance figures, but says that the Concept Coupé SUV "illustrates the possibilities of a more sporty and dynamic 'on-road line'," and hinting at the expansion of its "previously uniform SUV off-roader family," suggesting the company is looking to more fully embrace the popularity of SUV vehicles amongst consumers who rarely, if ever, venture off-road.
