Mercedes-Benz Breaks the Mold with Concept Coupe SUV

2015-08-13T09:28:46+00:00August 13th, 2015|Mercedes Benz|

Mercedes-Benz continues to redefine new driving experiences with an innovative new concept vehicle that melds the functionality of an SUV with the luxury performance of a coupe.

Imagine, redefine, push limits, remove barriers: these are the goals of the Mercedes-Benz design team when it is time to create something new. While other automakers are simply updating existing models, Mercedes-Benz is committed to developing vehicles that are simply the best. To do this, they have to break out of existing molds and expectations to bring together the latest automotive advancements in an entirely new way.

Mercedes-Benz Coupe SUV

The Concept Coupe SUV from Mercedes-Benz

Each model in the Mercedes-Benz Future Vehicles line-up is an expression of this commitment to innovation. One of the freshest examples is the Concept Coupe SUV. This vehicle melds the popular and sophisticated coupe design with the functionality and athleticism of an SUV. The design features a streamlined side line and an assertive front grille that speaks to its powerful capabilities.   Furthermore, the wheels and lift of the vehicle give it greater functionality on different terrains. Pair this with the “Dynamic Select Control” and drivers have the means and capability to adjust the transmission to the environment and driving style for additional control and handing.   The Concept Coupe SUV features a 9G-TRONIC PLUS nine-speed automatic transmission with twin-turbine damper and DIRECT SELECT® gearshift.

With the Concept Coupe SUV, designers worked to create a dynamic driving experience that could be personalized to the needs of the driver to provide a more personalized drive. Powered by a 333hp V6 engine coupled with 4Matic® permanent all-wheel drive, the Concept Coupe SUV doesn’t shy away from an adventure.

The 2016 GLE-Class Coupe

While the Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV is still being designed and tested, drivers can look forward to a similar concept vehicle that will be released later this year: the 2016 GLE-Class Coupe. The athletic styling of the 2016 GLE-Class Coupe pairs the agile design of a coupe with the function and power of a premium SUV. The commanding front grille is partnered with a muscular body style and large premium 21” standard wheels or optional 22” wheels. Sporty, sophisticated, and fun, this one-of-a-kind coupe exudes confidence and responsiveness.

The interior design of the GLE-Class Coupe offers the same luxury standard drivers have come to expect from the Mercedes-Benz brand. Sports seats and a compact steering wheel speak to the athletic nature of the vehicle. Intuitive control and infotainment elements are similar to those in the C,E, and S-Class. The information display is partially integrated into the instrument panel for the optimal viewing position. Materials throughout the dash and cabin are of the finest quality and craftsmanship and surround occupants in luxury and comfort.
