Review

The Mercedes GLB is similar to the Land Rover Discovery Sport in lots of ways, but gutsier and more efficient if you opt for our favoured 220d model. It will work well for many families, although the firm ride is a concern.

get the best price

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.

We're yet to try this engine out.
