Sentiment Score 59%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The GLB's overall profile is much boxier than anything else we've seen spun off the architecture that underpins it. Inside there are dashboard flourishes that are designed to mimic the G-Class's grab-handles. The UK range of GLBs makes use of the extensive line-up of engines available to Mercedes on the MFA platform. It all starts with the GLB 200, which uses a 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment
Cons
  • Lacklustre handling
  • Lack of standard kit

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It has plenty of power for overtaking on highways, but it's no sports car. The GLB is a comfortable, quiet cruiser that feels like a proper luxury car.
