With less than 24 hours until the Concept Coupe SUV will be able to be seen from all angles at the 2014 edition of the Beijing Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz decided to preview the car with a short teaser.
Sure, you already know how the concept car looks from the front and three-quarter view, but what about from the side and from the rear? Is is a true BMW X6 clone with a Mercedes-Benz star or is it something a bit more special?

Well, the short teaser doesn't show much, and whatever it shows is only available for fractions of seconds, but we managed to take a few screenshots of the most important bits for your viewing pleasure.

The side view is as expected, very similar to that of the BMW X6, but the details are entirely different, starting with the fact that there is not a single hint of a wedge shape in there.

As you can see, the rear is where things get really interesting, as the taillights seem to be united like on a Porsche 911 Targa, while the overall shape is narrow, like on the new S-Class Coupe C217.

Thing is, the teaser shows a side and rear design that is more similar to an SUV version of the Mercedes-Benz F800 Style concept car than the BMW X6, come to think of it. We will expect the actual official photos to see the car in all its splendor tomorrow, but this is the current vibe it has given us so far.

Either way, the production version of the Concept Coupe SUV is to be called the Mercedes-Benz MLC and will be launched at the beginning of 2015, with production to exclusively take place at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
