A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque sits behind the three-pointed star on the GLB’s grille. For 2024, a 48-volt hybrid system is added, although total output stays same.
2024 Mercedes Benz GLB-Class –
Life is full of choices, and Mercedes-two Benz’s subcompact crossovers reflect an endless one: beauty or utility? The 2024 Mercedes Benz GLB Class is the boxier counterpart of the GLA-class, although whether that makes it smarter or dorkier is a matter of personal preference. Both Mercedes-Benzes are powered by the same 221-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available, as are a slew of upgrades that may transform the interior from business to Club RGB with an optional ambient lighting kit with lighted vents.
Despite its lack of horsepower, which is reserved for the AMG GLB35, which is examined separately, the GLB-class has superb driving characteristics that make it comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The GLB has more cargo room than the hotter GLA-class because to its squarer rear end, and it may even be purchased with an optional and extremely snug third row. The GLB isn’t a tiny G-class, but it’s a viable alternative to other small luxury crossovers like the BMW X2, Audi Q3, and Lexus NX.
Mercedes-Benz has given the GLB-class a facelift for 2024, with new bumpers, headlights, taillights, and an improved interior. Mercedes’ updated software now includes the previously optional 10.3-inch infotainment touchscreen.
Mercedes has also added an AMG Line interior with a heated steering wheel as standard. The GLB’s new 48-volt hybrid-assist electrical system, hidden behind all the new metal and leather, might boost the GLB’s EPA estimations.
