A Guide to the All-New 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB

Mercedes-Benz GLB

The Mercedes-Benz GLB is all-new for 2020, and it’s already available at our dealership! This compact luxury crossover sits between the even more compact GLA and the larger GLC, which qualifies as a full-blown SUV. Before you get behind the wheel of a new GLB for sale in Fairfield, take advantage of our guide to find out exactly what it’s offering.

Mercedes-Benz GLB: An Overview

Wondering if it’s the right choice for your daily drives and adventures? Here’s what you should know off the bat:

  • Dimensions and Seating: The GLB exterior dimensions qualify it as a compact crossover, and its chassis is based on that of the A-Class sedan. However, the Mercedes-Benz GLB can be configured with two or three rows of seating, so you can travel with up to seven passengers.
  • Engines and Performance: Currently, the GLB is only available with a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4. It has more than enough power to propel this lithe and lightweight crossover, but performance enthusiasts may wish to wait until the Mercedes-AMG® GLB 35 is released in MY2021.
  • Features and Appearance: The all-new GLB is one of the first models to receive MBUX–an intelligent multimedia center with next-generation natural language voice commands. Visually, the GLB looks a lot like a classic, boxy SUV, causing some reviewers to compare it to the off-road-ready G Class.

Like what you’ve seen so far? Let’s dig a little deeper.

Mercedes-Benz GLB Specs and Features

2020 GLB Pricing

2020 GLB Performance

  • The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine, which offers 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • Models with front-wheel drive get 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. With 4MATIC® AWD equipped, you’ll do even better with 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
  • All models are paired with the 8G-DCT® 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

2020 GLB Dimensions

  • Although it measures just 182.4 inches from bumper to bumper, the GLB can seat either five or seven passengers, with an optional third row. The wheelbase is 111.4 inches, and with a height of 65.3 inches, you’ll enjoy excellent visibility.
