The Mercedes GLB is similar to the Land Rover Discovery Sport in lots of ways, but a bit cheaper and with a punchier engine if you opt for our favourite 220d. It comes with seven seats, it’s pretty comfortable, easy to live with and will work well for many families.get the best price
Trim: AMG Line
AMG Line alone doesn't bring a lot more to the table, other than 19in alloy wheels, a rear armrest, privacy glass and more aggressive styling, so we'd go for AMG Line Premium, which adds 10.3in screens for the infotainment and instruments, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, augmented reality sat-nav, power-folding door mirrors, keyless entry and front and rear parking sensors. That makes it our pick of the range.
Engine: GLB 200
The entry-level 1.3-litre petrol has a seemingly healthy 161bhp, which is just dandy if you're pootling around town. But, as most of its power arrives high in the rev range, you'll be stretching its legs up hills or with seven people on board, and its seven-speed automatic gearbox isn't very crisp on kickdown. It's also quite coarse when you rev it out.
