The four-door, all-wheel drive coupé study extends elegantly to a length of almost five meters and, with broad shoulders and flared wheel arches, stands a good two meters wide. The low roofline, the power domes on the hood, the unmistakable design of the rear windshield and the finned grille with its centrally positioned star embody the typical character of a Mercedes sport coupé. Conversely, its muscular fenders, substantial wheel arches, mighty 22-inch wheels, high waistline and generous ground clearance emphasize the SUV side of this innovative concept car.
Zetsche: “There are, of course, already a number of SUV crossovers on the market. But we have opted for a different, more distinctive approach: Our starting point was a thoroughly sporty coupé, to which we have added our comprehensive off-road expertise.”
Examples include the standard-fit air suspension and the intelligent networking of the drivetrain, chassis and interior. This combination delivers a highly exclusive driving experience both on and off the road. Propulsion is provided by a powerful and efficient V6 biturbo engine, coupled to the new Mercedes-Benz nine-speed automatic transmission. With four different handling programs and an individually programmable setup, the “Dynamic Select Control” system provides the best configuration for every driving situation.
