Remember when tight jeans reappeared a few years ago? Largely out of fashion since the heyday of the “era of the 80s when punk and metal scenesters adopted hugging jeans calf pants as a reaction to the brim 1970 elephant bell, its origins, often done at home resulted in what appeared to be a pair of denim jodhpurs well adapted carelessly, which comically undermines its purpose as a fashion statement. -jeans adjusted century, by contrast, they are the product demand of the mass market. offer elegant tailoring and right relatively conservative grid, these wipes offer buyers a painless way to enter the latest trend, while enhancing profits for their manufacturers.
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is largely a product of the same philosophy. Based on the popular crossover GLC compact luxury coupe GLC brand factor style and modernity directly from the factory, when trying to fulfill its core utility mission and people carrying things.
BMW rival test these waters with its X6 most called four-door coupe in 2008, and the fashion consumer obediently fell in line with cash in hand; BMW X4 coupe when the four-door compact echoed similarly in 2014, it was observed that a real change in consumer tastes was at hand. Even better, from the point of view of the manufacturer, it is that most of the heavy work for the coupe development was done; they could simply deriving a second model of an existing architecture. It is not a peculiar anomaly, the GLC coupe is the latest model in crossover-coupe action with four doors.
As often is the case of the pants, the point of the GLC Coupe is a stylish cut. While the GLC ceiling height is designed to provide maximum headroom and cargo space, the coupe GLC cuts a more relaxed profile telling the world: “Hey, I’m a practical guy, but not entirely they resigned.” To 63.0 inches high and 186.2 inches long, 1.6 inches which is lower and more than 3.1 regular classes inch GLC. Most of the extra length of designers is the need for extending the line slightly tilted toward the ceiling hind legs, keeping the proportions preventing Pontiac Aztek comparison. He works here, looking for a better integration of some of these exercises in style.

Front lighting elements also follow the line of the mark size, while the pillars are slightly more vertical than the standard GLC.
The same engine turbo four-cylinder 241 horsepower that drives the CGL provides motivation for GLC300 coupe. An automatic transmission with nine speeds tabs, natch-deck 273 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels through a standard system 4MATIC all-wheel. (At this point, coupe two-wheel drive GLC is not in the United cards, although it appears that the setting in the standard model, we can not make us call the “sedan” version.) Mercedes says the full euro style on board to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds; We pushed a standard 4MATIC GLC300 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and has every reason to expect the coupe version will match this rate.
If you hold the idea that the appeal of the crossover segment is based on all about practicality and usefulness, these coupé variant makes no more sense than a pair of jeans can not be used to work on a Work of construction. However, like most other consumer products of the last century, designers and marketers finally working to broaden the appeal of the individual product core.And the GLC coupe is just that, an intersection of more stylized expression. Why bother with the hassle of reduce adjustment when you can buy a more elegant cutting grid? Look for the GLC coupe to hit dealerships in early 2017, just in time for fashion week.
