Features To Love About The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB

June 26th, 2020 by

 

There’s fierce competition out there when it comes to compact crossovers and from the outside looking in, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB may appear to some that it is no different than any other luxury SUV. However, one only needs to take a quick test drive in order to truly understand the unmatched Mercedes experience. This year’s GLB has a prime and ritzy interior design, a high-ranking performance and first-rate technology that one can only expect from this 94-year-old German automobile powerhouse. 

All in all, the intelligent fusion of usefulness and adaptability makes the GLB the obvious choice to lead the pack in its segment. Here are some Features To Love About The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB!

Lavish Interior Design and Features

Mercedes-Benz offers a generous amount of goodies for its interior, such as with its strategic storage for the passenger section and cargo area, which provides much needed practicality. Drivers will also find much comfort in their seating and plenty of support. 

The GLB has a look that is so posh that one would never guess that it came at such a budget-friendly price. Of course, more deluxe items will push up the price, but most should be satisfied with or without these additional features.

Another fan favorite that loyal buyers will be excited to see its the newest version of the brand’s MBUX infotainment system, which is operated by a central touchscreen that comes at a standard size of 7-inches and an available 10.25-inches. The system is also controlled by a touchpad, as well as buttons on the steering wheel and commands through natural-language. 

As always, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration are both standard, and the same goes for the five USB Type-C ports. Optional features include driver memory settings and a power liftgate.

Spaciousness

Mercedes is being quite modest when it says that offers 24 cubic feet when the second-row are seats up, but in actuality, it gives us much more, especially opposed to its rivals. Whether or not the last row is put up, there is more enough room to house any of your large items.

The extra length is also very beneficial for second-row passengers, as they can easily recline and slide their seats as they choose. Moreover, the GLB has available third-row seating, which many of its competitors lack. 

Excellent Performance and Fuel Economy

The GLB 250 is powered by a forceful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that fosters up 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. As a standard, the luxury subcompact comes with front-wheel-drive and is rated at 23 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. However, with the optional 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive, it only gives up 1 mpg on the highway with 23/30/26.

Both the 250 and 250 4MATIC® are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, pushing the GLB from 0-60 in 6.9 seconds.

Those who crave a bit more power will be excited to know that an AMG® variant of the GLB close at hand and will produce 302 horsepower, running 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds. Buyers only need to hold out for its release in the fall of 2020.

An Array of Advanced Standard Features And Options

The 250 SUV offers plenty of features both standard and optional. Standard equipment includes MB-Tex synthetic leather seating, a touchscreen-powered infotainment system with natural language control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, dual-zone climate control, heated side mirrors, driver memory settings, and a power liftgate. The AWD would add on an extra $2,000.

Optional features include adaptive suspension ($990), Burmester premium audio system ($850) and wireless device charging with one-touch NFC pairing ($200) and many others.

Shoppers can even enhance the GLB’s appearance even more with the AMG® Line and Night packages ($3,000 if put together). This would add on bumpers, blacked-out exterior trim, a flat-bottom steering wheel and five-spoke, 19-inch wheels.

Multitude Of  Safety Equipment

An SUV is nothing without its safety features and Mercedes doesn’t disappoint. Standard safety features include forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, a warning system for the inattention of the driver and a stability control system that reacts to crosswinds.

Second-row passengers aren’t without, the back seats have side airbags and a blind-spot warning system as individual options. The Driver Assistance packages come with adaptive cruise control system cross-traffic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, evasive steering assistance, and crash preparation. A Parking Assistance Package is also available and adds on surround-view cameras and automatic parking.
