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.

The AMG 35 comes with everything the AMG Line Premium has, plus adaptive suspension, 20in alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, electric front seats with lumbar adjustment, AMG styling, real leather trim and a panoramic sunroof.

With 302bhp this 2.0-litre turbo in the AMG 35 hits 0-62mph in just 5.2sec, aided by its standard-fit launch control system and four-wheel drive.
