2019 Mercedes GLB: Here’s Our Best Look Yet At Compact SUV’s Interior

We’ve had quite a few sightings of Mercedes’ GLB compact SUV this year and this latest one is likely the most revealing so far — at least as far as the interior is concerned.

The boxy GLB was spotted during a fuel stop in Sweden where Mercedes-Benz engineers are subjecting it to cold weather testing. The photographers managed to take some clear shots of the exterior from up close, as well as the best snaps of the SUV’s interior yet.

As you can see, the dashboard looks very similar to the one in the new A-Class and B-Class, which is not surprising given that the GLB shares its platform with the compact hatchback/sedan and MPV. However, a notable difference is the center console that appears more prominent than in the A-Class and B-Class.

The rest of the dash, with the big screens, three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, and turbine-style air vents, looks very familiar. Obviously, Mercedes’ latest infotainment system, the MBUX, is present in the GLB as well.

On the outside, the Mercedes-Benz GLB looks significantly bulkier than the A-Class and even the B-Class. The boxy appearance sends the message that the GLB is more than just a high-riding hatchback such as the GLA. Expect the new SUV to share engine options with the A-Class and B-Class, including a wide selection of gasoline and diesel power plants in Europe.

The U.S. range will be gasoline-powered only, although an electrified powertrain is said to be in the works. As more recent spy shots have shown, the GLB will also be available as a Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 version, powered by a 301 hp (306 PS) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

Mercedes is expected to lift the veils off the all-new GLB in mid-2019.
