Mercedes-Benz is raising the standard to a higher level in multiple respects with the new Concept Coupe SUV.
This extremely sporty study is a typical representative of the long-standing coupé tradition at Mercedes-Benz, with a flowing sideline, stretched cabin and striking radiator grille with central chrome louver.
At the same time, the Concept Coupe SUV stands out with its muscular wings, large wheel arches, imposing 22-inch wheels, high beltline and generous ground clearance.
Its dynamic handling on the road is also of a superior level.
The variable dynamic control system “Dynamic Select Control” provides four fundamentally different transmission modes and an individually programmable setup.
“Sensual as a coupe — visionary as an SUV,” is the succinct choice of words used by Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz, to describe the design of the Concept Coupe SUV.
The four-door, all-wheel drive Coupe has a length of almost five meters, and an imposing width of a good two meters thanks to its broad shoulders and flared wheel arches.
At the same time, it has a modest height of around 1.75 meters, exhibiting the flat, extended roofline that is typical of a sports coupe.
“The Concept Coupé SUV stands out thanks to its extreme proportions and in doing so interprets our hallmark Mercedes coupe design idiom perfectly. With its superior sportiness it conveys a sense of modern luxury and aesthetic aspirations of sensual clarity,” said Wagener.
Like the recessed door handles, frameless side windows blend perfectly into the vehicle flanks to accentuate the coupé-like character even further.
