Mercedes GLB 2021 review - it's a half-price GLS!

12 074
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!

If you're looking for a Mercedes 7-seater, would you pick the GLB over the GLS? Let us know in the COMMENTS!

@ALAELDIN ABDALLA it’s a smaller car, for different purposes. The GLE is a mom truck. If that’s what you like then great but if I were to go for a GLE then I would buy the Audi Q7. Much better. If you want a smaller suv for a younger male with family then the GLB is one of the best in the market.
Yes GLB it’s ok , but can not compare by gle or GLC or gls , this glb economy car for family with driver , and less options. I have gle can not compare by this 😂

I’ve gotta GL500 2015 AKA GLS 550 2015 model and it’s got all electricly operated seats, and has three sunroofs, thus I suggest buy a 2015 GL500 Amg rather spending bucks in a new one with less features

I had the GLE when it was the ML500 and it only cost me 45k. I don't need the bigger version, I just like the GLB and have built mine with what I need and should be getting it in a couple of months. I've test driven it and I'm happy with it.

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 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).
