You've seen the redesigned 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC. Now, get ready for its slopier-roofed sibling: the 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

Sporting a beltline that's slanted upward and a rear-end design more reminiscent of the brand's two-door cars, the new GLC Coupe is, in Mercedes' own words, the lifestyle model in the company's SUV lineup.

The GLC's AMG Line appearance and equipment package is standard when you go Coupe. This means 19-inch wheels (20s are an option) and painted fenders. encompasses wireless charging, heated seats, and Burmester 3D audio. Also standard is a 360-degree camera system with a "transparent hood" function, assisted parking, as well as sport suspension featuring a new four-link front, and variable-ratio steering.

Not that many GLC Coupe drivers go off-road very often, but Mercedes has added an off-road drive mode and "Downhill Speed Regulation." Off-road mode turns on the transparent hood camera setting, letting drivers see more obstacles.

Inside, it's all projected on an 11.9-inch infotainment touchscreen accompanied by a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

The new Coupe GLC is more aerodynamic and boasts more cargo room than the vehicle it replaces. The car as a whole is also physically bigger than the last GLC Coupe, being 1.2 inches longer, 0.2 inches taller, and running on wider tracks.

In GLC300 4Matic Coupe form, power comes from a 48-volt mild hybrid system paired with a 2.0-liter turbo-four making 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That hybrid system can add up to 23 hp and 148 lb-ft of additional forward thrust. Zero to 60 mph happens in a Mercedes-estimated 6.2 seconds and the top speed is a perfectly sufficient 130 mph.

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe will hit U.S. dealerships sometime later this year.
