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
