2019 Mercedes-Benz GLB Compact G-Class SUV - infant G-Class with all the tough looks, however, underpinned by a regular system-- it sounds practically too great to be true. The Germans are reporting that it will be found in 2019, however several of the information regarding the GLB isn't making that much feeling. Mercedes risks with the GLB a reinterpretation of the G-Class: an edgy and also rustic option to the existing GLA. Naturally, the little G-model lacks the technological background to become a certified climber. But at least aesthetically, the way of life SUV imitates well its ancestor.
The stylistic hints from the original are all there: the wrinkled fenders mounted front directional signal, the virtually vertical grill or the body-coloured door structures. The GLB (growth code X 247) will certainly be offered in two versions: as a reasonably compact five-seater and a seven-seater with an extended by 120 mm wheelbase. The high roofing and also high rear end develop enough area for large travel luggage. Revolutionary is likewise the interior of the GLB: highlights consist of the steering wheel with both touchpads extracted from the brand-new E-Class plus a brand new touchscreen in the centre console to change the Comand controller.
This model will have a large boot, probably extra clearance than the GLA as well as back seats that move forwards as well as in reverse. This feature is common to MPVs as well as tourers, suggesting that the GLB is a close cousin of the B-Class.
The basis for the 2019 Mercedes GLB is the MRA front-wheel-drive architecture. Because the existing generation of A-Class and its counterparts offered in greater than 600,000 copies a year, the Benz accounting professionals have greenlit almost all innovations from the greater classes, from hybrid powertrains to state of the art support systems that make semi-autonomous driving possible.
Still, no three-cylinder engines will be included, as Mercedes remains real to the four-cylinder design. On the gasoline front, a 1.6-liter unit and also three two-litre engines will certainly be available, while diesel followers will be catered by 1.6 and 2-litre engines in two power levels.
We have actually lately test owned the B and also could inform you it sits even reduced to the ground compared to it appears. While you could get all-wheel-drive, there's inadequate clearance or body defence. So it's good that the Mercedes-Benz GLB will enter manufacturing, no question concerning that.
As for the supports, they will contain the 2nd generation front-wheel-drive platform, otherwise referred to as the MFA2. Its very first application will certainly be in 2018, a year previously compared to the GLB. Rumor has it that it will certainly be a little lighter as well as a lot much more modular. Mercedes have gotten so good at making these small cars that Infiniti also hired them to craft the QX30.
