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.

The entire Edge lineup receives new wheel designs, and two new gray colors join the palette. All models also receive acoustic-laminated glass on the front side windows for extra sound deadening as well as standard rear parking sensors. The infotainment system gets upgraded to the Sync 4 interface and gains a 12-inch display. The top-level ST model adds a six-way power-adjustable passenger's seat and a heated steering wheel as standard.

Pros
Accommodating interior, smooth and quiet ride, well-equipped even at the base level.

Cons
Cabin fit-and-finish needs polish, nondescript handling, rival SUVs look and feel fresher.
