BMW X4 versus M-Benz GLC Coupe

The formal four door SUV coupe body type has spread from mid-size level (check out X6 vs GLE Coupe comparrison) to compact with the introduction of BMW X4. And now, as expected, Mercedes-Benz has stepped into the game with the GLC Coupe.

Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is longer and taller than its direct competitor. It also offers two engine variations to compete against the BMW X4.

Both entry level models, GLC300 4MATIC Coupe and X4 xDrive28i, are equipped with 2-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engines. GLC300's engine produces 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, which is one hp and 13 lb-ft more than that of X4 xDrive28i's.

And there's an even greater gap between sportier models, AMG GLC43 Coupe and X4 M40i. GLC43 Coupe's engine is rated at 362 hp and 384 lb-ft, which is compared to 2017 M40i is 7 and 41 units more, respectively.

Mercedes is expected to release more data, particularly interior room, fuel economy, and performance specs, on the GLC Coupe closer to the market launch of the model which is scheduled for early next year.
