Mercedes-Benz will be previewing at this month's Beijing Motor Show its BMW X6 competitor with the Concept Coupe SUV.

The BMW X6 has been on sale since 2008 and is getting ready for a second generation but Mercedes-Benz still hasn't launched a direct adversary. However, the three-pointed star company is on the right track as in a couple of weeks in Beijing they will unveil this Concept Coupe SUV, previewing what will probably be the long-rumored MLC.

It's scheduled to come out next year and will be built in United States at the Tuscaloosa, Alabama factory alongside the M-Class. Promising to offer "very dynamic handling", the new model will look considerably more aggressive than the regular M-Class and will adopt a more sloping roofline together with a raked windscreen.

More photos and details will be available on April 20 during the press day of Beijing Motor Show.
