2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB Indianapolis IN
Mercedes-Benz is at it again, adding yet another intriguing model to their lineup. With five SUVs currently holding up the brand (GLA, GLC, GLE, GLS, and G-Class), some may wonder what the GLB could possibly bring to the table that isn’t already present. If you know anything about Mercedes-Benz, though, you already know that they aren’t ones to play by the rules of convention. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB, which will soon be made available here at Mercedes-Benz of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN, is a compact SUV that is set to deliver fresh new technology and infotainment as well as some compelling power and performance under the hood. It’s not just an effort to freshen up the brand; rather, it’s a way of expressing to drivers that they do not, in fact, know all they think they know about Mercedes-Benz and their innovative mindset. *European Model Shown
Specs and Features in the 2020 GLB
Combining excellent versatility with an aesthetic off-roading design, the GLB fits comfortably between the smaller subcompact GLA and the larger compact GLC. It seats seven passengers and houses a variety of infotainment features, most notably the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system. This system, already found in models such as the A-Class and the newest GLE, is an advanced voice recognition system. No, we’re not just throwing around the word “advanced” to sound cool. This system is unique in that is recognizes your everyday speaking voice and delivers results appropriately without the need to articulate more clearly or louder than normal. You can ask the MBUX system to play music, find a location, or even ask about the score of a sporting event.
The athletic build of the GLB is proof of its off-roading intentions. It has an optical underride guard on the front and rear to protect the body as well as well as MacPherson suspension struts with adaptive adjustable damping. Standard in the 2020 GLB is an eight-speed automatic transmission as well as a power output of 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. 4MATIC® all-wheel drive is also available for the 2020 GLB.
As Mercedes-Benz evolves, they offer vehicles that more closely resemble not just what drivers are looking for now, but what they’ll be looking for five years in the future. The 2020 GLB is a perfect example of that. Learn more about the newest SUV available by contacting the team here at World Wide Motors!
