Since the BMW X6 in the late 2000's, we've seen a number of SUV based coupes pop up. BMW has their X4 and X6, Mercedes has their GLC and GLE, while Porsche recently started selling a Cayenne Coupe. With these cars, running a rear dash cam is similar to any other SUV in the sense that we have to route the wire through the factory grommets. However, where they differ is the viewing angle.
Due to the slope of the rear window and the taller height of these cars, rear visibility is not ideal. The rear lip of the trunk also typically kicks up, further impeding visibility. So the license plate of the vehicle behind may not be in view if the car is close. See our example below for an idea of what the view would be like out the back. The lower the license plate of the vehicle behind, the harder it would be to see.
Because of this, we usually recommend going with a higher resolution rear dash cam which will be able to see a license plate from further away. We installed the Blackvue DR900S-2CH which has a 4K front camera and 1080P rear camera and offers the best video quality out of any Blackvue dash cam at the moment.
