What Car? says...
When it comes to SUVs, we’re spoilt for choice. There are small ones, big ones, rugged ones, fast ones, hybrids and even fully electric ones. But with such a great variety, it’s surprising that there are so few seven-seat SUVs with a premium badge – at least ones that aren’t the size of an aircraft carrier. That's where the Mercedes GLB steps in.
The ‘B’ in its name might lead you to think it’s smaller than the GLC, which it is, but by only a couple of centimetres. And the GLB is available with an extra row of seats, just like its chief rival in the large SUV class, the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
So, should the Mercedes GLB be at the top of your wish list, and how does it stack up against its key rivals? Read on for the answers to those questions and more, as we take you on a deep dive into the GLB model range.
By the way, if you like the look of the GLB but want something that runs on electricity, check out our Mercedes EQB review – the EQB is a seven-seat electric SUV that shares many parts with this car.
And remember, if you do decide it’s the car for you, make sure you check out our New Car Buying service, because you could potentially save thousands on a new GLB, without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
