Here is a list of products that will be unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo.
Mercedes-Benz GLB, the seven-seat SUV is expected to be introduced in the Indian market. Post launch, the SUV will be positioned between the GLA and the GLC. The third row of seating is likely to be optional. Codenamed the X247, the GLB uses the same MFA II platform as the new A-class, B-class and CLA.
In terms of dimensions, the Mercedes-Benz GLB measures 4,634mm in length, 1,834mm in width and 1,658mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,829mm. With the third row seats, the SUV will barely offer any boot space. With the third row down, it offers 560-litres of boot space. The SUV will get familiar interior elements in the form of all-new MBUX dual-screen system, turbine-like air-con vents and more.
Mechanically, the Mercedes-Benz GLB is expected to be offered with two four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines – a 1.3-litre that produces 161bhp (GLB 200), a 2.0-litre that generates 218bhp (GLB 250). The diesel version is expected to get a 2.0-litre engine which will be available in either 148bhp (GLB 200d) or 188bhp (GLB 220d) guise. All except the base GLB 200 which gets the old 7G-DCT, the rest will use Mercedes’ new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The model might also offer a 4Matic all-wheel drive option.
