Mercedes GLB compact SUV under development

Mercedes GLB compact SUV under development

Based on the latest-gen A-Class, Mercedes is planning a new compact SUV called GLB, which will focus on family-oriented buyers. One of the prototypes was recently spotted at the Nurburgring and here are our exclusive spy pictures. 

With a length of 4.6 meters, the Mercedes GLB should not only offer a lot of space, but also a trunk volume of around 500 litres. There is even a version with three rows of seats and seven seats. Visually, the GLB is quite angular and closely resembles the legendary G model, albeit in a modern look.

Known under the X 247 internal code, the new SUV uses the same MFA2 platform which underpins the A-Class and B-Class model families, inheriting their engine line-up and amenities. Expected to offer an electronically controlled four-wheel drive system right from the outset, the new Mercedes-Benz GLB will likely be available in four-cylinder guise only. These diesel and petrol engines from the co-operation with Renault-Nissan will have displacement capacities of 1.4 to 1.8 litres. The range will be completed by Mercedes’ own 2-litre four-cylinder diesel and turbo petrol engines.

The GLB will be priced below the E and C-Class models as well as the GLC, which are also suitable for families.
