Mercedes is putting the finishing touches on the 2016 GLC, so our artists have created a rendering of what the model could look like.

Designed to replace the GLK, the GLC has curvaceous bodywork that echoes the C-Class. We can also see a two-bar grille, distinctive character lines and a gently sloping roof.

Engine options will carryover from the C-Class, so expect an assortment offamiliar petrol and diesel units. There should also be a new AMG variant with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that develops 476 PS (350 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.

Since there have also been rumors about a GLC Coupe, our artists also created a rendering of a BMW X4 competitor. The crossover's styling won't win everyone other but it stays pretty faithful to the design of the recently introduced GLE Coupe.
