The Concept Coupe, as it was called by Mercedes officials, will anticipate the design lines and the coupe shape of the future model. The production version is expected to reach showrooms in the second half of 2015, which means that we can see the coupe SUV unveiled at the end of 2014.

The name is still a mystery, but sources inside Mercedes are talking about MLC indicative. This will show the close relation between the new SUV and the current ML, from which it will borrow the platform.

Sharing the same platform means the production will take place at the same plant, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Unites States, the place where the actual ML is borne. To help differentiate the car from its brother, Mercedes will design a more sloping roofline, together with a raked windscreen.

Final details on the Concept, and a complete photo gallery will be available starting April 20, the first day of the auto show.
