Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 GLB-Class is the smallest Mercedes that can be equipped with three rows of seats.

Pros
Chunky styling
Lots of tech
Right-sized

Cons
Third row looks tight
Too many Mercedes SUVs?
Bound to be expensive

Slotting into the narrow space between the GLA-Class and the GLC-Class is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class compact crossover, but this mini-ute pulls its boxier styling from the vaunted GLE- and G-Class SUVs. We saw the concept in April at the Shanghai auto show and Mercedes-Benz unveiled the production model, in all its mini-ute glory, at an event in June; we expect the GLB to be on sale by the end of 2019.Behind the GLB's big, grille-mounted three-pointed star is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 221 horsepower. The engine is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. Mercedes-Benz estimates a zero-to-60-mph time of 6.9 seconds.
