Just a few days after the premiere of Concept Coupé SUV in Beijing, first prototype of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC has been spied testing in its production form.
Even under heavy camouflage, it’s easy to see that the shape of the MLC. Specific elements like the front fascia design and S-Class Coupé inspired tail lights have carried over from the concept.
As it shares its underpinnings with the M-Class, we expect that it will be offered with the same suite of engines. We wouldn’t rule out a hotter AMG version with twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine.
Production and global sales of the MLC should start in the second half of 2015.
