2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB review – Merc's new 7 seat SUV is a mini GLS | First Drive | Autocar India 2022

January 2, 2023

The Mercedes-Benz GLB is an interesting new option for luxury SUV buyers. It’s got three rows of seating like the larger GLS, it’s about the size of a GLC and it’s got the youthful vibe of a GLA. Nikhil Bhatia tells you how it all comes together.

  1. Why would one choose this product over the GLA? No spare tire, compromised 3rd row of seats, same interiors and same interior compromises as the GLA(no rear sunblinds, no rear A/C controls) and although turbocharged, the same low displacement turbo petrol engine used in the petrol GLA(it's ok for the GLA but the GLB should've had a better petrol engine. Reusing the same diesel engine is ok as it is very powerful). In my opinion, the GLA makes for a much better buy than the GLB unless you require require the length and that extra pair of compromised 3rd row of seats.

  2. Buying this car in India is ridiculous!

    – Does it have adaptive cruise control? Probably not.
    – Does it have lane keep assist? No
    – Does it have all the features that’s available in the US?

    In US, the base GLB On-Road price starts at $38k (i.e. 32 lacs INR), and the GLB 250 4-Matic is just about $40k, whereas in India the base variant GMB starts at 70 lacs ex-showroom!

    That’s just stupid! I can afford to buy this, but I’m not a moron. 😅

  3. Hopefully a CKD will come a year later like the S class and GLS at around 50 lakhs……

  4. Not a good product

  5. Is it the same 1.3 turbo in Nissan kicks?

    It should have been assembled in India, the import duty has made the prices mad. 84 lakhs onroad Mumbai for a glb is just insane. Most of them would be better off with the glc at lesser price. And when there good 7 seaters like scorpio n, fortuner, meridian, innova hycross, xuv700 at less than half the price then this doesn't make sense.

  7. No spare, only a puncture repair kit. No thanks

  8. 7:28 tire is off the ground😯

  9. Ye Kitnaa dethaa hai……?

  10. No cup holders in rear armrest? How do I car-o-bar?

  11. Question is now a days and future Electric technology in automobiles is happening but is it risk to buy petrol or diesel cars or bikes from now ?

  12. The Mercedes-Benz GLB has been launched at Rs 63.8 lakh (ex-showroom). Variant-wise prices below –
    GLB 200 Progressive – Rs 63.8 lakh
    GLB 220d Progressive – Rs 66.8 lakh
    GLB 220d AMG Line – Rs 69.8 lakh

  13. After seeing the price tag, I feel that My earnings are way too less 😢😅

    The video shot at 6m 30s is awesome! Great location!!

  15. Summarising my All new Tucson is far superior in terms of features, specifications, comfort, better leg room and even the boot space.

  17. But not worthy 😢

  18. The only mercedes i dont like 🤮

  19. GLB is like Škoda Yeti by Mercedes Benz!
    It is way more expensive in its segment than its rivals.

  20. Mercedes new designs are just off colour. The old GLE and GLS used to look much more macho. These curves and swooping lines make it look like a crossover

  21. Why don't car manufacturers add the thigh support extenders to the back seats like they do for the front seats?

    Is there any specific reason?

  22. without a spare wheel is a big demerit.

  23. Had a test ride of this last week. Linear power delivery though. They will be marketing this as a Family car rather than pitching it was a 7 seater. Last row space is for kids only. A full adult won't sit for long journeys.
