2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class Overview

The Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class debuts for 2020. It competes with the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

The GLB-Class slots neatly between the GLA-Class and GLC-Class. Inside, you’ll notice the same floating surfaces, aircraft-inspired air vents, and rich material choices as in other recent Mercedes-Benz vehicles. By default, the GLB-Class seats 5, with reclining and sliding rear seats that fold to expose up to 62 cubic feet of cargo space. You can opt for a third row that expands seating to seven and includes tether attachments for an additional two child seats. Both the second- and optional third-row seats fold flush with the cargo floor.

The GLB-Class comes in a single GLB 250 trim, which sports a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine with 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power for a 6.9-second run to 60 mph and a top speed of 130 mph. The GLB 250 also gets an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) standard and the option of 4MATIC all-wheel drive (AWD). As of this writing, no fuel-economy figures are yet available.

Among the list of features included in the GLB 250 is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, which includes navigation, customizable graphics, learning capabilities, and advanced voice control. Other tech features include LED high-performance headlights and LED fog lights.

The GLB-Class benefits from a healthy list of safety systems. These consist of a reversing camera, adaptive cruise control, lane-tracing assist, lane-changing assist, automated parking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class packs plenty of utility and technology into an efficient, traditionally shaped package.
