2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB Review
One of a growing collection of reasonably-priced compact vehicles from the luxury automaker, the new Mercedes-Benz GLB crossover offers the functionality and affordable price Centerville drivers are looking for.

Mercedes-Benz GLB Price: What the Experts are Saying
The front-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 starts at $36,600* MSRP. You’ll find broad agreement among critics that despite its affordable entry-level luxury price, the GLB is a full-fledged member of the family that feels and drives like a Mercedes-Benz:
- Autoblog.com: “The precise steering is consistently and appropriately weighted, road holding is commendable (perhaps a testament to it not being raised further off the ground), and we were genuinely surprised at how chuckable the little GLB is through corners..”
- Motortrend: ‘The engine’s 221 horsepower is more than adequate. With a pair of adults on board, the GLB 250 doesn’t feel strained getting up to speed when merging with interstate traffic. Give credit to the new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which never has a stumble when smoothly picking the proper gear.”
A common theme in Mercedes-Benz GLB reviews is its roomy interior space — despite a compact appearance from the outside. In fact, there’s so much room you even get a third-row option for those times you need to pack in an extra kid or two. A high-mounted seat and abundant headroom ensure even tall adults have plenty of space riding in the first two rows.
- Jalopnik: “ With the first two rows in place, luggage capacity is cavernous and you should have no problem getting two kids to grandma’s without a roof box.”
- Autoblog.com: “ There’s a whopping 62 cubic feet of maximum space, which outdoes the X1 (58.7), Q3 (48.0) and XC40 (47.2).”
Mercedes-Benz GLB Interior
Critics note that the well-designed GLB interior makes efficient use of space, with thoughtful-placed storage consoles throughout the cabin and plenty of standard convenience features:
- Power cargo access remote release
- MB-Tex leatherette or soft-touch rubber-appointed cabin
- Remote keyless entry
- Full floor console with covered box
- Overhead console
- Mini overhead console with storage
- 3 driver and passenger memory seat settings
