Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV rival of BMW X6
Mercedes-Benz is going to exhibit a direct rival of the popular BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe. The Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV will be previewed at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show starting this month.
BMW X6 has been unveiled back in 2008 and already has received a minor facelift in 2012. The German manufacturer is preparing a 2nd generation of it, but Mercedes-Benz still hasn't launched a direct rival of it. However, the long-rumored MLC is going to be introduced to the audience in a couple of weeks.
2016 Mercedes-Benz MLC is scheduled to begin production next year in the US at the Tuscaloosa, Alabama factory alongside the M-Class. It will look considerably more aggressive than a regular M-Class and will have a "very dynamic handling". Practically, Mercedes-Benz will create a X6 with different headlights, grille, badges and some other elements. The engine range will be taken from the M-Class except, of course, the smallest power units.
Stay tuned for more photos and information, which will be available on April 20th during the press day of Beijing Motor Show.
