Although many will eternally associate the Mercedes-Benz badge with their pedigree for performance and luxury automotive engineering and design seen through its range of coupes, roadsters and sedans, the power the brand has quietly exuded in the SUV segment shouldn’t go understated. From the compact and urban-friendly GLA SUV all the way up to the trail-conquering Invictus that is the G-Class, Mercedes-Benz has not just an award-winning lineup of utility vehicles, but one that has never lost sight of the silver star badge on its grille
This year, the Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup is growing even further. The 2020 model year brings a brand-new contender to the small luxury SUV space, the rugged, off-road SUV space and the third-row family/friends-focused SUV space. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is a game-changing entry that brings the robust, trail-friendly performance of the G-Class into a smaller segment. It also has three rows for fun and excitement that can be shared.
As versatile as luxury SUVs come, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB promises more than just comfort and capability. With shorter overhangs, off-road-friendly elements that go far beyond aesthetics and a cavernous interior that can seat seven, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is an homage to everything the SUV can be, but too often chooses not to be.
Slotting perfectly between the GLA and GLC SUVs, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB has a 111.4-inch wheelbase with shorter overhangs for better approaches and departures. Up to 62 cubic feet are on hand for those looking to the GLB as a cargo-hauling answer on their quest for the perfect camping or outdoor activities spot.
Inside, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is built to not only uphold the legacy of Mercedes-Benz luxury engineering and design but reveal its future direction. Aluminum details adorn the composed interior, while the brand-new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) dual-screen setup welcomes drivers to enjoy the future of automotive infotainment technology.
As far as performance and capability go, you won’t be wanting for power. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 features a powerful and efficient 2.0-liter engine that outputs 221 horsepower, 258 lb-ft. of torque and can hit a top speed of over 120 miles per hour. 0-60 acceleration comes in at 6.9 seconds in the 4MATIC® variant.
We expect to see the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB in our showroom by the end of the year. If you’d like more information on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB or any of the SUVs in the Mercedes-Benz 2019/2020 lineup, contact us today!
