Mercedes GLB 2021 review - it's a half-price GLS!
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the Mercedes GLB! And we’ll be the first to admit, we’re a bit confused… The new GLB sits below the GLC in the range of Mercedes SUVs, but it’s actually bigger and more practical than the ‘C! Confusing? We’d have to agree.
But given you can pick up this seven-seater from just £34,500, will it make the MUCH bigger GLS obsolete?! Well when you consider that the top-of-the-range petrol engine (the GLB 35) is a 2-litre turbo that produces 306hp and 400Nm, it just might! So is it the smarter choice for your family? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

      @kuhne i liked sedans until i saw the lexus 450 years ago. I got the lx470 and got sold on SUVs. I look forward to my glb250.

    • kuhne

      GLB. I don’t like the bigger SUV’s, in fact I don’t like suvs at all I would rather have a sedan but I occasionally need to fit 7 so the GLB is the perfect car for me, I would get it even if it was more expensive.

    Same price as as an X3 Xdrive, which already includes Moonroof, ambient lighting, keyless entry, hands free trunk access, as standard. Also faster and sportier.

    I am glad someone finally see the resemblance of GLB vs GLS. Many called it the baby G-Wagon, I totally disagree!!!!. GLB exterior looks exactly like a baby-GLS, from any angle!!!

    I find the GLB far more appealing than the GLC. Regarding the 1.33-l turbo engine, I feel it gets a lot of hate from people who have never driven it. My father got a new B200 earlier this year with that motor and I am impressed with the smoothness and silence and the power. It’s powerful and torquey and definitely not underpowered. The fuel economy which my father achieves with his B200 is also incredible. With a soft foot and intelligent driving (in ECO Mode), he can get as low as 4.8 L / 100 km - impressive for any modern car, and this also includes some Autobahn driving (but he never drives faster than 120-130 km/h anyways).
