The Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class is a five-door compact luxury crossover SUV built by Mercedes-Benz. It was revealed by the German carmaker Daimler AG in 2019 in Utah. It was previously exposed as a concept vehicle to the people at the Shanghai Auto Show in April, the same year.
The GLB is located among the GLA-Class crossover and the larger GLC-Class SUV in size, and unlike those two, the GLB-Class has seven seats due to better space distribution.
The GLB comes in three trim levels: GLB 250, GLB 250 4Matic, and AMG GLB 35. The GLB 250 and GLB 250 4Matic are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (221 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The GLB 250 is front-wheel-drive, while all-wheel drive comes standard on the 4Matic. The AMG GLB 35 employs a high-performance variant of the same powertrain (302 hp, 295 lb-ft of torque) and eight-speed transmission. All-wheel drive comes standard.
