Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé OverviewFew other creations in the motoring world divides opinion more than the inception of the Coupé SUV. Pioneered by the BMW X6, the idea of trimming off the roof from a practical SUV for a more desirable coupé-like silhouette is nothing short of an abomination to some, but well received by many others. Automakers, including Mercedes-Benz, soon jumps onto the band wagon of the niche Coupé SUV segment, first with the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé, which made its appearance in the Jurassic World movie, and soon with the smaller Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé.
In 2019, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia introduced the facelifted C253 GLC Coupé in the sole GLC 300 Coupé AMG Line trim. Based on the same platform that underpins the Mercedes-Benz GLC, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé is essentially the SUV equivalent to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé, with two extra rear doors. Locally assembled in Malaysia, the facelifted model features revised exterior and updated interior equipment. Prices starts from RM 403,536 (OTR without insurance and 0 % sales tax) and rivals the likes of BMW X4, Audi Q5 Sportback and the Range Rover Evoque.
