Mercedes Benz GLB 200
Modern styling in a compact body, class, comfort, safety and performance all in one car. The all-new seven-seater Mercedes Benz GLB 200 is a long-awaited model in their compact SUV lineup.
Exterior Of The Mercedes Benz GLB 200
The new Mercedes Benz GLB 200 SUV is an extremely practical vehicle that can be used both in a city setting and on the highway. Parking is easy and the vehicle can carry up to seven passengers, so it is more than adequate for larger families.
Elegant headlights flank the three-point star grille with a perfect fit. It features a modern, aggressive bumper in the lower portion of the front end. The more rectangular silhouette is offset by soft bends in all the right places.
A Real Head Turner
In this way, a compact SUV looks both imposing and elegant at once. This is how a small SUV can look both imposing and elegant at the same time. The rear boasts more recognizable Mercedes styling features that make the Mercedes Benz GLB 200 look bigger and bolder than it really is.
This Mercedes Benz GLB 200 looks the part and performs like a top-of-the-line model.
Engine Specs and Powertrain
The Mercedes Benz GLB 200 engine produces 161hp and 250Nm from a 1.3L turbocharged unit. The dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission directs power to the front wheels.
As a result, this new Mercedes Benz GLB 200 is able to deliver all that torque instantly when you press the pedal, allowing you to take off right away. This is because the gearbox shifts quickly while maintaining the best revs for performance and efficiency.
So How Does This Translate To The Driving Feel?
The top torque figure comes from just over 1600 rpm and you can see that. Moreover, the dual-clutch gearbox reacts quickly and always keeps you in the best possible section of the rpm range.
This means that the power delivery is next to instant. 1600 rpm is not far from idle speed, so when you press the pedal it takes just a very short time to get all that torque at once and the Mercedes Benz GLB 200 is ready to take off. The gearbox plays a big role in this as it shifts quickly and it keeps you at the best revs for performance or efficiency.
We were also pleasantly surprised by the comfort and road handling of the Mercedes Benz GLB 200. While it is a compact SUV, Mercedes Benz seems to have found the sweet spot between comfort and control and it is just great.
Feel The Power
You can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in less than 9 seconds and all the way up to 207km/h with that power.
Its fuel economy is excellent for a car of this size with a reported 14.2 km/L.
Interior Of The Mercedes Benz GLB 200
The interior of this new Mercedes Benz GLB class is also a prime example of quality, practicality and style, adorned with great materials, futuristic tech and ergonomic design.
There is more than sufficient legroom for both the driver and front passenger.
The centre console twin screens are designed using the latest styling direction from the company. It oozes a sense of elegance and futuristic technology while making navigation very practical with its multi-gesture touchpad controls.
Of course, this kind of tech allows for loads of personalisation that can be saved in seven different profiles. Moreover, all the tech in the Mercedes Benz GLB 200 is designed to make the best use of machine learning to adapt to your preferences and habits over time and make your Mercedes Benz GLB fit like a glove.
Spacious And Versatile
The Mercedes Benz GLB class offers spacious and ergonomically pleasing interior space upfront but has ample space at the rear as well. The third row also has two additional seats. Even though they’re only for children or the occasional use, they’re a welcome addition to a vehicle in this segment.
There is 130L of boot space available with all 7 seats occupied. You will have 500L of space once the third row is folded. With the second row folded, you will end up with 1055 L.
