The new Mercedes-Benz GLB

The new Mercedes-Benz GLB

Powerful proportions with short overhangs and off-road-oriented design as well as optional 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a special off-road light which helps detect obstacles in front of the vehicle at low speeds – the new Mercedes-Benz GLB is a versatile SUV. And a spacious family car: it is the first Mercedes-Benz in this segment that is available as five and optionally a seven-seater.

Spacious, elegant and powerful

With an efficient four-cylinder engine, the latest driver assistance systems for driver support, the intuitively controlled infotainment system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) and the comprehensive charging comfort system ENERGIZING Comfort, this car features all of Mercedes-Benz's latest technological advances. But there is no alternative to the particularly sporty Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 4MATIC in the compact SUV segment.

With the new GLB the compact car family from Mercedes-Benz now consists of eight models: the A-Class, A-Class Saloon and long-wheelbase A-Class Saloon, B-Class, CLA Coupé, CLA Shooting Brake and the GLA.

Ready for boarding: up to seven seats

The GLB is the first compact vehicle from Mercedes-Benz to offer a third seat row on request with two additional individual seats. The seats offer people up to a height of 1.68 metres a comfortable amount of space. 

The extensive safety equipment includes extendible head restraints, seat belts with belt tensioners and belt force limiters on all outer seats, a side window airbag which also protects the passengers in the third seat row plus ISOFIX and TOP-Tether anchorages for suitable child seats. These can be used to fasten up to four child seats in seat rows two and three.

“Mercedes-Benz customers are already familiar with the intuitively controlled infotainment system MBUX, which is equipped with Mercedes-Benz cars. GLB is no exception. The main advantages of MBUX are a powerful computer, great screens and graphics, customizable content navigation with augmented reality, training software and voice control, which is activated with the slogan Hey Mercedes, ”says Jānis Dambītis. In turn, the capacity of the GLB cargo compartment is equivalent to a station wagon - for a five-seater it is from 570 to 1805 liters. Optionally, the second row can be moved back and forth, increasing the luggage compartment by up to 190 liters and opening up a wide range of applications.

Safety is just as important as visual appeal

The Mercedes-Benz GLB's iconic design reflects the genes of the SUV family - robust thoroughness combined with perfect surfaces and clean lines. 

The new Mercedes-Benz GLB can be perfectly adapted to the taste of each customer, and emphasizing its sporty character, special two-tone leather interiors are offered, while an exclusive atmosphere will be created by linden or walnut in the interior.

The latest 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system and a special off-road light function will also be a reliable driver's guide, allowing you to detect obstacles in time and adapt to different off-road scenarios for a reliable and comfortable ride on a proven holiday route or on expeditions on unknown roads.
