Review

Despite some quibbles with its refinement levels, the fact that the GLB is a seven-seat SUV with the three-pointed star on its nose – along with the technology, driving qualities and an interior that lives up to the expectations that the famous emblem inspire – will be a deciding factor for many. Yes, the Q5 remains our preferred large SUV, but it lacks the option of a third row of seats. And while the Discovery Sport just gets the nod over the GLB, that’s primarily because it’s more spacious. Mercedes has produced a highly commendable all-rounder with no real weaknesses.
