Based on second-gen model

A recent report indicates Mercedes-Benz is preparing a coupe version for the GLK.

Known internally as the GLC, the three-door GLK will be based on the second-gen model and is expected to come out sometime in 2016. Apparently Mercedes-Benz will drop the boxy look of the first-gen model in favor of a more stylish and sleeker body which will be more eligible for a three-door coupe.

It will be one of the firm's first models based on a new RWD platform known as MRA. In terms of engine lineup, we should expect to see 2.0- and 2.2-liter gasoline and diesel engines, while a possible GLC AMG could get a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter producing 462 hp (344 kW).

Pricing should start from 29,000 GBP (about 45,924 USD or 34,426 EUR). The lesser variants will be optionally available with the firm's 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, while the higher-end versions will get it as standard.

Even if they throw a thick blanket over it regardless of the number of doors, it still won't make it good looking.

It might not look sexy, but it is definitely neat and practical.

Hear! Hear! What a missed opportunity at a time when Crossover fever is spreading like wildfire in the image-conscious UK market!
