2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Three Rows In A Compact Size
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Three Rows in a Smaller Size for LA SUV Shoppers
The Mercedes-Benz saga starts long before the brand itself. Ever since Karl Benz developed the Benz Patent Motor Car in 1885, it’s been a story of continuous evolution, with old models continually getting new technology, and new models like the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB occasionally joining the family at dealerships like Keyes European.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB Details
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 comes in either FWD or 4MATIC® AWD guises, each driven by the same 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine. It’s larger than the Mercedes-Benz GLA, smaller — just barely — than the Mercedes-Benz GLC, and offers an optional third-row seat. Despite the relatively compact size, it still manages to offer a maximum of 62 cubic feet of cargo space.
Its long wheelbase leaves practically no rear overhang and results in driving dynamics closer to a wagon or shooting brake than an SUV. Ask your Los Angeles Mercedes-Benz dealer about the optional adjustable suspension (which improves ride quality) and the Off-Road Engineering Package (which is standard on 4MATIC®-equipped models).
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB Safety and Special Features
Here’s where things get interesting. As with other new Mercedes-Benz models, you can pick and choose among option packages to outfit this SUV to your liking. We suggest starting with the Driver Assistance Package, which adds enhanced radar and sensing capabilities plus a number of active assist aids (lane keep, active steering), active noise reduction that protects hearing in a crash, and active cruise control.
The Premium Package, which bundles blind spot assist with dual 10.25-inch displays (one for the MBUX infotainment system, one for the instrument cluster), is also high on many folks’ lists. Talk to your Mercedes-Benz dealer about other innovations like Crosswind Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST®, and the AMG® Line Package that provides a dash of AMG®-inspired style.
