Last year, Mercedes-Benz introduced a brand-new entry-level utility vehicle, a subcompact luxury crossover sliding into the lineup just a bit smaller than the GLA. Now in its sophomore year, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB is available here in the Savannah GA area. Mercedes-Benz introduced a couple of subtle enhancements to the GLB for the new model year, but the big news is the introduction of the brand-new AMG® GLB 35 trim level as the young vehicle gets its own high-performance variant.
New for the 2021 model year, Mercedes-Benz has added Blind Spot Assist and a 115-volt outlet as standard features in the GLB 250 and GLB 250 4MATIC®. As for the new AMG® GLB 35 trim level, it’s powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine enhanced by AMG®, making it capable of generating 302 horsepower.
The AMG® GLB 35 also features the next-gen AMG® steering wheel with Touch Controls, widescreen dual displays that include two 10.25” screens – one the Digital Instrument Cluster and the other a touchscreen Multimedia Display featuring next-gen Touchpad, LED lamps up front and in back, the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 8G dual-clutch transmission system and, of course, the AMG® Performance 4MATIC® variable all-wheel drive system.
In addition, people shopping for the AMG® GLB 35 can also opt for a host of available features. These include a third row of two individual seats, the AMG® Night Package, AMG® RIDE CONTROL® Sport Suspension system, AMG® Performance Steering Wheel in either Nappa Leather or DINAMICA®, AMG® Drive Unit Steering Wheel Controls and the AMG® Track Pace App.
