Scheduled to debut in 2015, the BMW X6 competitor from Mercedes-Benz was teased today during an event at the company’s Tuscaloosa, Alabama plant.

The Twitter photo reveals a silhouette with coupe roofline similar to the X6.

Dubbed MLC, the Mercedes Coupe Crossover is built on the ML-Klasse platform, but with design cues inspired from the current CLS.

The BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe opened a new segment where multiple premium automakers are expected to introduce their offerings in the next years. Mercedes is reportedly favoring form over function for this crossover, with a bold, daring design that will steal away customers.
