Higher boost and lower friction are two ways AMG raises the output of the 2.0L inline-4 to 302 hp, 295 lb-ft and 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. A liquid-cooled twin-scroll turbo and high-pressure Direct Injection help quicken its pulse, and yours.
Along with multiple modes and manual shift paddles whenever you want them, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT® 8-speed's dual clutches mean quicker shifts anytime. Rev-matched downshifts add to the fun.
AMG Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive tracks acceleration, cornering and your driving inputs. Light and agile, it can quickly send power where traction can become action. ESP Dynamic Cornering Assist can torque-vector for more secure cornering.
The AMG Sport Exhaust is tuned for optimal flow, and to express the power within. Internal valving can vary the sound to match its fury, with the twin tailpipes growling the revs yet mellowing out for comfortable cruising.
For enduring stopping power, the AMG High-Performance Braking System reins in the speed with 4-piston fixed front calipers on substantial 13.8-inch perforated discs.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you tune performance settings to suit your mood. Modes range from Slippery to Sport+, plus a custom Individual setup. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT adds performance controls with color displays to the steering wheel.
Standard 3-stage AMG RIDE CONTROL® can adapt each wheel's damping in milliseconds. The double wishbone front/multilink rear suspension turns rigid, light components into flexible, tight handling.
An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
Purposeful, precise and poised, AMG® wheels are available in seven styles. Standard 19-inch wheels and options up to 21 inches include three designs with bold matte black centers. AMG GLB 35 in Patagonia Red with 21-inch AMG multi-spoke wheels pictured above.
Upright GLB lines get downright sporty with AMG styling. From the deep front apron and vertical grille bars to a rear spoiler lip and lower diffuser, it's attitude at any altitude. The black-accented AMG Night Package takes it all to a deep, dark side.
A rear spoiler is one of numerous details that help make the upright GLB surprisingly aerodynamic. AMG GLB 35 in Mountain Grey with 20-inch AMG twin 5-spoke wheels pictured above.
From its deep front apron to its sleek roof rails, the GLB 35 is eye-catching yet sneaks through the wind. AMG GLB 35 in Polar White with 19-inch AMG twin 5-spoke wheels pictured above.
Like every member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family, the GLB takes its shape from its capabilities, from sizable wheels to the functional roof rails. Solidly upright styling and a long wheelbase maximize cabin space, allowing seating for up to seven in a compact footprint, while short overhangs enhance maneuverability in town and off-road. Ruggedly appealing details include black wheel-arch trim, a bold grille, and wrap-under doors to help you exit without touching dirty side sills.
The GLB and AMG join forces in style. The vertical-bar AMG grille is underscored by a deep front apron with large air intakes, black outer flics, and a matte chrome splitter. Black fender flares and side sills bridge the standard 19-inch wheels. The deep rear valance embraces the four round AMG tailpipes and black diffuser. The rear liftgate integrates a functional spoiler lip.
Supportive seats, intuitive controls and clear readouts never go out of style. More specifically, neither do power sport seats, dual reconfigurable 10.25-inch displays, three touch interfaces, an advanced voice assistant, and 64-color ambient lighting.
A vivid 10.25-inch screen lets you reconfigure the AMG instrumentation. To its right, a touchscreen of equal size places a world of multimedia content for easy reach, easy viewing, and easy comprehension.
Gear changes, cabin features, and vehicle settings are easy to grasp with your hands on the sport steering wheel. An even sportier AMG Performance steering wheel is available in Nappa leather, grippy DINAMICA microsuede, or a combo.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 12-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power side mirror positions. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort.
The 2nd-row seatbacks fold down in a 40/20/40 split, offering a variety of cargo and passenger configurations. Folding the center section independently can help you fit longer items like skis between two rear passengers. The seatbacks are adjustable to multiple positions from a comfortably gentle recline to more upright settings to add cargo length while still seating passengers. The second row also slides fore-aft up to 5.5 inches for a range of legroom and cargo space.
Available 3rd-row seating provides room for two additional passengers to ride in the GLB. Suitable for average-sized adults but ideal for children, the seatbacks can be folded down in a 50/50 split to enhance the versatility of the cargo area. Also included is an EASY-ENTRY folding feature for the 2nd-row seat, along with an additional 5 inches of forward sliding adjustment to ease 3rd-row access.
A groundbreaking concept in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming, and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods.
A highly advanced system takes voice control to a fascinating level. Memorizing fixed commands is a thing of the past: Artificial intelligence makes the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) a future you can live today. Vehicle functions for a wide range of features respond to natural, conversational phrases. For example, say "I feel cold" and MBUX can adjust the climate control. It even learns new phrases over time, and responds with more flexible and friendly language as well.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For added protection, the Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers continued peace of mind with prolonged coverage tailored to your needs.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
A camera in the windshield can record activity occurring in front of the vehicle, and let you save it for playback using your own compatible USB flash drive. Potentially useful for documenting an accident or other event, the 1,280x720-pixel video with a 30-Hz frame rate can also include vehicle speed and the time of day. Playback can be viewed on the car's multimedia display or on your own computer via your USB flash drive.
A system of interconnected elements work together to help protect the occupants in a collision. High-strength/low-alloy (HSLA), ultra-high-strength, and press-hardened sheet steel are used in critical areas such as the roof pillars, floor and roof crossmembers, door beams and various body reinforcements. Advanced front and rear crumple zones deform progressively to help absorb the energy of an impact, while the front bulkhead helps channel some impact forces under, over, and around the cabin.
Whenever the front wipers are on and you shift to Reverse, the GLB's rear-window wiper automatically sweeps to clear your view out the back. The wiper can also be switched on to its intermittent setting at any time by the driver, and includes a washer.
Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help get the GLB-Class noticed, for added safety and in modern style. Their distinctive angular design accentuates the subtle forward lean of the grille.
When traveling above approximately 20 mph, radar technology can help sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist can then alert the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. An audible warning sounds if the driver activates a turn signal while a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. After parking, Exit Warning Assist can alert the driver or passengers to vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians that could be at risk if the door is opened.
