Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV was unveiled in the beginning of the month with a first picture and some details. Now, the German company is releasing a package of images as well as detailed information around this extremely sporty study concept. At first glance, the SUV impresses as a typical coupe with its flowing sideline, stretched cabin and striking radiator grille with central chrome louvre. At the same time, it stands out with its muscular wings, large wheel arches, 22-inch wheels, high beltline and generous ground clearance. Not to mention its dynamic handling on the road.

The four-door, all-wheel drive Coupe has a length of almost five metres, while its width is of two metres thanks to its broad shoulders and flared wheel arches. However, the height is around 1.75 metres, thus exhibiting the flat, extended roofline that is typical of a sports coupe. The concept sports recessed door handles and frameless side windows that blend perfectly into the vehicle flanks.

Mercedes Benz' new concept SUV is painted in the "Alu Beam" paint finish, which is also reminiscent of the technically ground-breaking Silver Arrows of the 1930s and 1950s. Other highlights include upright sports grille with single louvre, framed by the three-dimensionally designed all-LED Multibeam headlamps.

Soft cubes dominate the grille insert. Harmoniously integrated illuminated side sills are reminiscent of the running boards found on classic SUVs or off-roaders. The direction indicators work with a moving digital light band whose lighting elements light up sequentially from inside to outside. In this way they indicate the change in direction in two ways.

The coupe nature of this concept SUV can be seen also in the design of the rear end with the slim band of rear lights and the registration plate incorporated into the rear bumper. Another feature is the typical shape of the rear window, which is rounded off at the top.

The tailpipes of the dual-flow exhaust system are integrated into the simulated underguard. Polished aluminium dominates here, as on the integral door handles, the side sills, the front air intakes and the edging of the cabin. At last, Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV runs on wide 22-inch wheels with tyres in size 305/45 R 22.
