Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz recently added two new products to its luxury SUV portfolio. These are, namely, the GLB and the EQB. In this news article, we will briefly talk about the GLB 200.

The GLB is the epitome of the characteristic appearance of an SUV with versatility and dynamism. GLB’s striking design, flexible seating positions, legroom, and load compartment, make it a highly practical urban SUV for daily usage.

The SUV gets a generous amount of space and a maximum boot capacity of 1680 litres.
The GLB also offers a third-seat row with two additional individual seats. Mercedes-Benz says that the third row is ideal for families with kids and pet lovers. GLB ensures space variability as the second seat row has a 40:20:40 folding split. There are three powertrain options available. These are Petrol 4×2, Diesel 4×2 and Diesel 4×4.
MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) gives high-resolution screens and graphics, a customizable display, learning-capable software, and Voice Control with natural language recognition. All of this takes the user experience up by a notch.
