Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The boxy shape of the GLB means there's lots of front space. Even the optional sunroof doesn’t do much to dent head room, and leg room is copious, even for tall drivers and front passengers. 

There's also plenty of space to store odds and ends. Push a button at the base of the centre armrest and it reveals a deep cubby; in front of the infotainment touchpad, there’s another lidded cubby as well as two cupholders and a dedicated area for your smartphone. Even the door pockets are big.

Seat folding and flexibility

Every GLB has second row seats that can be slid back and forth to suit your needs. However, while the Discovery Sport's three second-row seats each slide independently of one another, the GLB's only move in a 60/40 split.

This hampers versatility a little, but the seatbacks can at least all be reclined independently. And the third row seats are easy to stow and erect.
