Fancy a high-riding SUV but not a fan of their boxy behinds? Well, the Mercedes GLC Coupe combines a lofty driving position with a sleek, fastback styled rump that certainly catches your attention.

Under the surface, it shares components with the firm's C-Class saloon, just like the regular GLC on which it’s based. However, the Coupé is actually lower and slightly longer. Unsurprisingly though, the Coupe’s boot isn’t quite as commodious, owing to its angled rear window. Rear head room also takes a bit of a hit – something worth knowing should you have tall chums.

Facelifted in 2019, the GLC offers a pair of four-cylinder diesels, along with a four-cylinder petrol, and other engines will arrive in the fullness of time. If you’re in need of more firepower, the AMG GLC 63 gets a mighty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with up to 503bhp.

If you’ve an eye on style, you’ll be pleased to hear that all models get aggressive AMG add-ons inside and out, with wheels of at least 19in in diameter. However, jump up to the second trim up and you’ll get whopping 20in wheels as standard.

The GLC Coupe’s arch rival is the BMW X4, the coupe version of the BMW X3. However, we’d argue the Porsche Macan’s shapely rear will also please the image conscious, as will the Range Rover Evoque. We’d also recommend taking a look at the Audi Q5, even if it doesn’t look quite so sporty.

But should you buy one?
