Brand New Mercedes GLB

Brand New Mercedes GLB
13 Jun 2019
By Ross Wild
The GLB has recently been unveiled as Mercedes-Benz’ brand new versatile SUV and is expected to be released in autumn 2019. Although it appears to be such a large vehicle it actually sits somewhere between the Mercedes GLA and GLC. It features a spacious and futuristic interior with advanced technologies and comfortability with bold, curved exterior lines to give it its distinctive shape. One of the real selling points to the GLB is the fact that it has the option of having seven seats, meaning that it is a great vehicle for larger families whilst still retaining a fairly agile and small size, similar to that of its rivals, the Volvo XC40, Volkswagen Tiguan and BMW X1.   

Mercedes are yet to release further information on the GLB closer to the launch; like specific driver assistance systems and engine specifications... However, we do know that there will be four four-cylinder engine options. The petrol engines consist of a 1.3L(161bhp), and 2.0L(221bhp) as well as, two 2.0L diesels, one with 148bhp and the other with 187 bhp, all of which featuring automatic gearboxes. The GLB will also have a variety of different driving modes to choose from with the included Dynamic Select switch; which modifies torque-distribution to better suit road conditions, making the GLB perfect for long motorway-hauls as well as off-road adventures.

Mercedes-Benz GLB Interior

The Mercedes GLB has an interior similar to that of the Mercedes A-Class, with features such as the connected MBUX infotainment system (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) including a 7.0 inch centre touchscreen display. This is used for navigation, phone calls, music and AppleCarPlay/Android Auto if your mobile phone is compatible; as well as a 7.0” instrument screen which works as a virtual cockpit. In terms of seating, as mentioned before, you also have the choice to make the GLB a seven-seater, which makes it the first of its class to accommodate so many passengers. The second row of seats can also be adjusted to further increase loading space. Another benefit to the Mercedes GLB is its standard safety equipment, such as retractable head restraints, side window airbags, ISOFIX points for car seats and seat belts with belt tensioners. The maximum load capacity of the vehicle is 1755 litres and can be enlarged by a further 179 litres due to the adjustable second row.
