Following our previous scoop on the 2020 Mercedes GLB, we received fresh spy shots of the upcoming German company SUV but this time during daylight.
The test car is still covered with heavy camouflage, including fake bulges on both the front end and at the rear, masking its true shape quite successfully. The GLB will play the role of the more practical sibling of the GLA and that means a more upright roofline and even possibly a seven-seat option.
Mercedes is keen on keeping the also upcoming GLA as the more affordable SUV in its lineup, meaning that the GLB will be positioned one step above it. The two SUVs will share the same underpinnings, meaning the company’s MFA2 architecture which is set to debut in Geneva this March.
The interior will of course be closely related to that of the new A-Class, meaning a nice blend of cutting edge technology with a very premium but light design. The GLB will get the same twin-display setup, as well as the new MBUX infotainment system with its advanced voice recognition.
Mercedes is expected to reveal the new GLB towards the end of 2019, with a market launch in early 2020.
