    Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe official images emerge

    Mercedes-Benz is working hard on a competitor for the BMW X6 and it will likely be derived from this concept. It has just about the same body shape as its Bavarian rival, trying to combine the silhouette of an SUV with a roofline that you typically find on coupes. The Concept Coupe received a short rear overhang together with a pair of slender interconnected taillights.

    If the production MLC looks like that, it might actually be the first SUV-coupe thing I like.

    Preeeeeetty, I like it.

    But yeah... BMW is did that on the Gran Lusso, Lincoln does it on all their cars. Stick to the ribbed taillights.

    It's an interesting look. I always wondered why Mercedes didn't follow BMW into that segment.
    That being said, the rear tail lights aren't Mercedes -- a look that has been fashioned over the last couple decades.
    It's concept, true, but that needs to change.

    Rear says "Lincoln."

    I like the overall car.

    I like the X6, but hate BMW... I like this, and I like Mercedes. Good and good.

    This is a segment that I simply don't understand. If I want a performance sedan I would be better served by a lighter, lower CG sedan. If I want a pretend SUV I would be better off with a CUV. If I want a performance sedan SUV I would be best served by a trip to the shrink.

    All the disadvantages of a sedan without any of the benefits of a CUV! It's gonna sell like crazy!!

    I've always like the CUV Coupes. They're unique. They have some utility and a lot of power in some incarnations.
    Go ahead and drive an X6M. If you don't smile, you're pretty much soulless.

    This CUV looks to be based on the next-gen E-Class. That means it has the ability to have at least 579HP.
    If I had $120,000 to spare, I'd buy it. Simple as that.

    The idea is a good one from Mercedes. Bring back a Mercedes-style taillight and call it a day. This thing would probably find a nice niche between ML and GL.

    I like BMW but I'm beginning to hate them because of vehicles like the X6.

    Diff' strokes.

    I like the X6, but hate BMW and hate BMW even more for building the X6. Not that far apart.

    I like the concept of the X6. The MLC is more my cup of tea.

    I'm sure I'd love the X6 M for its performance, but its exterior is unappealing IMO and the interior too boring. This though, in concept form, is more interesting to me. Wouldn't it be based on the W166? Anyway, even though I like this I'd probably prefer the GL-Class. Despite being unique, if I was really going for any type of utility vehicle I'd want good utility, otherwise I could achieve much the same thing in a sedan or wagon. My personal taste of course, since many/most buyers reject wagons.

    Audi Q8, anyone?

    I still think that Cadillac should do the worlds 1st truck based SUV 4 door coupe off of the Escalade, with it the LT4, 2" lower suspension, some concave 24" wheels styled exactly like the original ATS sport wheels with a price of about $135,000 and it will sell like hotcakes, I promise.
