Specs and features in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB SUV
Few people would say that the Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup was missing something. With five options to choose from in 2019 from the tame and subcompact GLA to the military-based off-roading G-Class, there is something for everyone. Even so, Mercedes-Benz drew the attention of fans everywhere with the announcement of a sixth SUV in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB. What does this SUV have to offer, and is it worth considering? Follow along as we go over the specs and features below!
Size-wise, the GLB fits between the GLA and the GLC. Even with its smaller size, the GLB is made to perform well off roads with the help of thick and durable 17-inch off-roading tires. The muscular, aggressive exterior profile is a fitting image that represents the efficient yet powerful 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Achieving top performance requires more than just a powerful and efficient engine, which is why the GLB includes an eight-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, CAMTRONIC® variable valve timing system, and 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.
The hype surrounding the Mercedes-Benz-exclusive voice command multimedia interface has started to die down a little, but that doesn’t make it any less exhilarating. The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system is available in the GLB and allows drivers to select music or navigation as well as answer general inquiries, such as the score of a local sporting event. Multibeam LED headlamps and exterior paintwork in designo® cashmere white mango add a nice aesthetic touch, while the interior nubuck leather and milled aluminum give a retro look to an otherwise contemporary design.
The GLB promises to be a valued addition to the Mercedes-Benz SUV family. Learn more about it by getting in touch with us here at Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay or schedule a test drive on our website today!
