This is the new Mercedes GLB, which will make its debut in 2019. Don’t you think that there is a small air of the GLK ?
Despite a range already well provided side the SUV, Mercedes plans to expand again, with a new GLB. Placed between the GLA and GLC, it could be unveiled as early as the end of the month of November at the salon of Los Angeles.
Currently, Mercedes account not less than 7 SUV in its range and is one of the manufacturers with the broadest offer in the area. However, it seems that there is still room for an all-new model… Baptized GLB, it will be placed between the GLA and GLC are already existing and should measure a little more than 4.50 m.
A close look of the G-Class ?
Although it is still covered with camouflage on its entire body, the new photos “spy” which we have allow us to have an idea of the silhouette that he wears. Unlike the GLA and GLC, whose forms are rather rounded, the GLB opt for a style more cubic and could be modelled on the G-Class recently renewed. Seen in profile, it reminds even the GLK, which was replaced in 2015 by the GLC.
Based on the new platform MFA2 inaugurated by the recent Class A and Class B, the GLB will also have a vocation more family than the GLA and GLC, as it will be available in two versions, 5-and 7-seater. In addition to conventional petrol and diesel engines, it could have a variant hybrid, but also slumming with AMG.
If it should not be on the market until the summer of 2019, it is possible that the new Mercedes GLB is presented at the salon of Los Angeles in 2018, by the end of the month of November. In fact, the u.s. market will be its main target, all the more that it will be assembled in Mexico, in the framework of a joint-venture between Daimler and Nissan.
