Mercedes GLB was presented in the form of a concept a few days ago at the Shanghai Motor Show, where his appearance of field attracted much attention of the public.
The model will be a platform with other Mercedes "kids" – a class A, CLA and class B hatchback. However, here is the emphasis given to space and sturdiness, so the GLB will be the smallest Mercedes with three rows of seats.
The interior will be as in the models mentioned, including the excellent MBUX information and entertainment system with the advanced "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant.
With regard to the final layout, it will be different from the concept because we do not expect the production version of the terrain tires as well as the lights and the ramp on the roof.
Under the concept hood is placed a two-liter gasoline turbocharged engine with 224 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. The energy is transmitted to all four points through the eight automatic axes. Customers will be offered another gasoline and diesel engine, as well as an electric version, called EQB, which was confirmed to arrive in 2021.
As for the debut of the regular model, we assumed that it would appear at the next Geneva Motor Show. However, as it broadcasts the portal Motor1, The GLB in the final version will appear annually.
The famous manufacturer will not wait for the September auto show in Frankfurt but will probably host its own gala event to present this "missing link" in its SUV / Crossover portfolio.
