Sentiment Score[*] 49%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
Mercedes-Benz's new GLB compact SUV is a direct challenge to the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The GLB has a range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines to choose from. A plug-in hybrid, a couple of hotter AMG models, and a fully electric version are all in the pipeline.

autoexpress[2]

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Mercedes GLB 220 d doesn't quite score a direct hit on the Discovery Sport, but it's certainly the most competent rival yet for Land Rover's baby seven-seater. It offers strong performance and refinement, along with a better-finished cabin and more coherent in-car tech, but you will have to forego some boot space to get it.

Pros[**]
  • Strong performance and refinement
  • Decent infotainment tech
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 45%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The Mercedes-Benz GLB offers more headroom and cargo space than the GLC. A pair of 10.25-inch screens run Mercedes' excellent MBUX infotainment tech. The driver-assistance technology loadout is also impressive, though you have to pay to play.

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is the second crossover in the Mercedes compact lineup, alongside the GLA. Despite the vehicle's relatively small footprint, Mercedes offers the GLB with a third row of seats, bringing the total number to seven. The GLB gets the same MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system as the 2020 CLA.

  • Lots of standard driver assist tech
