Fuel consumption 7.8 – 11.1 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 66%(view ratings)
Introduced in 2020, the new Mercedes-Benz GLB may be a compact SUV, but it offers seating for up to seven, which puts it in a unique territory. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive system as standard equipment. A high-performance AMG variant will eventually join the GLB lineup, so keep an eye on that one, too.
