Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class hides station-wagon virtues behind its charming SUV-like body.

Pros
Handsome cockpit
Chunky body
Sliding second-row seat
Lots of technology
Right-sized

Cons
Tight third-row seat
Some features force you to buy other features
Infotainment needs a primer
Priced at a premium

Blind spot monitoring is now standard, but otherwise the GLB is unchanged for 2021. Mercedes is launching a high-performance, AMG-branded GLB35 model (reviewed separately) this year.

Pros
Compelling base price,
cool infotainment setup,
roomy for first and second-row passengers.

Cons
Not much in the way of standard equipment,
sluggish throttle response,
tight passenger space in optional third row.

For 2021 A blind-spot monitor and household power outlet now standard on GLB 250.

Pros
Spacious for both passengers and cargo
Strong overall performance
Exceptional ride and seat comfort
Lots of the latest tech and convenience features

Cons
GLB 250 isn't particularly exciting to drive
Options can quickly run the cost up

The Q2 is pleasingly bold on the surface, but plays with a very safe bat beneath it

Pros
Bold styling (for Audi),
should be a doddle to live with

Cons
Not especially fun to drive, few real benefits over an A3

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Huge scope for personalisation
Stylish, high-quality interior
Great range of engines

Cons
Many rivals are cheaper
Limited kit on entry-level model
Large wheels affect ride comfort

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Pros
Spacious interior
Impressive safety kit
Good build quality

Cons
High price
Firm ride on larger wheels
Best features are optional

By: 
autoexpress.co.uk

It can rumble with hot hatches, but does Audi's youth-focussed compact SUV warrant its $50K-plus price tag?

Pros
Performance aplenty
Nice road manners...
... and adroit handling
Silky smooth dual-clutch auto

Cons
Asks for Q3 money
Misses key safety tech
Second row not the last word in comfort
