Though the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB stands as a compact option in their SUV range, its size doesn't hold it back when it comes to space and capability. It is the first car in its category to be available with a seven-seat option and it can be equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel-drive for those who need off-road capability in a smaller footprint. The 4MATIC variant will also be accompanied by an Off-Road Engineering Package that tweaks the engine and ABS control when the off-road mode is activated through their Dynamic Select system.
The compact SUV will be offered in a GLB 250 (and 250 4MATIC) model that's powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and will get from 0-60 in 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph. Additional features include driver assistance systems that can detect cars at up to 1,641 feet for semi-autonomous driving, available adaptive adjustable damping, and a widescreen cockpit display that features their MBUX infotainment system.
The new 2020 GLB will arrive at dealers later this year.
