2020 Mercedes Benz GLB features
The 2020 Mercedes Benz GLB features a boxy profile, and a rugged stance that make the car look ultra modern. The car features 18″ alloy wheels, a short front and overhang. It also has a unique door arrangement.
The doors cover part of the side bar and open wider than conventional doors. This design prevents dirt from collecting in door openings. The car also features a protective cladding fitted to the underbody at the front and rear of the GLB. The wheelbase is shorter than the wheelbase of the Mercedes Benz GLC but longer than that of the GLA. Mercedes say this has resulted in a more spacious cabin and third row seating. The second row seats are set in a 40:20:40 split folding-style offering easier access to the rear seats.
Other features present on the 2020 Mercedes Benz GLC are electronically adjustable driver and passenger seats, keyless entry, a rear view camera, dual zone climate control, fog lamps, cruise control and a power lift gate. The car also features Active Brake Assist, Adaptive Braking, Hill Start Assist, Crosswind Assist, and Mercedes’ Attention Assist System. The GLC is powered by the M260 engine.
