Honestly, I don’t get it. I don’t mean the name; calling the 2020 GLC300 Coupe a “coupe” makes about as much sense as calling any four-door vehicle a coupe, in my opinion. No, what I don’t understand is why anyone would want this thing. The formula doesn’t make sense: Take a perfectly good Mercedes-Benz GLC300 SUV, which has been thoroughly updated for the latest model year, take away all the utility of having a hatchback cargo area, keep the high-riding SUV stance, cut the backseat headroom and charge more money. Debuting at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, it’s Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X4, itself an answer to a question nobody asked.
