The first-generation Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class is available in two trim levels: the GLB 250 and the GLB 250 4MATIC. The former gets a front-wheel drivetrain, while the latter gets a 4MATIC all-wheel drivetrain. Apart from this difference, the two models are identical, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox to develop 221 hp and 258 lb-ft.
The crossover rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and comes equipped with fog lights, LED head- and taillights, and LED daytime running lights. Inside, the cabin comes upholstered in MB-Tex synthetic leather with 12-way power front seats that offer four-way lumbar and position memory.
The infotainment suite comprises a seven-inch MBUX touchscreen with a supplementary touchpad, supporting Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD Radio, and five USB ports. The only standard safety features are a rearview mirror, a driver attention system, active brake assist, and crosswind assist.
These features can be further enhanced with multi-contour or sport front seats with heating and ventilation, a third row of seats, a panorama roof, leather upholstery, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless charger, and a 12-speaker Burmester surround sound system.
