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!

    • 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.

    • Who’s going to take a Mercedes nowadays should know that the engine will be Renault as this is confirmed by Daimler AG !!!!

  • 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).
