    2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe Review



    It seems like Mercedes-Benz has been a little too liberal with its use of the C-word.

    Usually reserved for exceptional circumstances, the word is being thrown around by the German automaker with reckless abandon. It used to be that a coupe was a two-door hardtop with a long hood and a proper trunk.

    Those parameters were stretched when the marketing folks at the Mercedes mothership got hold of the term, using it first to describe the big-bodied CLS, followed by the entry-level CLA — both were fitted with four doors and thus undeserving of such characterization.

    If branding a pair of sedans as coupes wasn’t enough, Mercedes decided to give a couple of its popular crossovers the raked roofline treatment. And the latest is the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, a small crossover set to take on the BMW X4.

    Who says C should be reserved as a designation for coupe?

    Some people must have too much time on their hands.
    I took European Delivery and drove through four countries in my limited edition Universe Blue CLA 250.
