Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe AMG 43 4Matic Review
The Upside of Confused

Compared to BMW’s X4 Series, the GLC Coupe does look very tidy

Mercedes-Benz has seriously raised the bar for what can be deemed a crossover. Have they nailed it? Or just added more confusion to their model line-up…

The lesser 43 Series of AMG cars is Merc’s way of making more ‘attainable’ AMG vehicles. The GLC Coupe, surely is an oddball of just about every C Class Mercedes model, sans the Cabriolet, tossed into the product development pot, with a few good stirs added in for good measure.

Frontal sculpting on this car is a fair mix of sports sedan and SUV, while the flared out black wheel arch trim, which is just slightly squared off in shape shouts all SUV. The roofline of the GLC Coupe which stretches to the tail of the car casts a coupe-like silhouette… a very tall one.

Unlike the regular GLC, which has a more upright tail end, and identifiable Mercedes striped tail lamp styling, with a space in-between for the licence plate, the Coupe gets a wing which sits at the top of the boot lid, and a set of tail lamps, sitting flush against the rear sculpting. At the base of the rear bumper, a pair of chromed dual tail pipe covers hint of the cars sportiness.

Without the larger 'E-Class' GLE Coupe beside it, you could mistake this car for being its larger sibling, as they are quite similar in styling… Maybe someone in the styling department got a mouse, held down on the ‘SHIFT’ key, clicked on the corner and scaled down a little to produce this car…

Compared to BMW’s X4 Series, the GLC Coupe does look very tidy, with plenty of thought penned into where sheet metal should be folded, and where it should not. The X4 on the other hand does look like a car developed with just too much input from too many designers.
