Less powerful in the model range of the Mercedes-AMG version of the new compact crossover GLB 35 is likely to debut in the coming months. The car will receive a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine at 302 hp.

Unveiled just a few hours ago at a special event held in Utah (USA), the Mercedes GLB compact crossover will initially go on sale as a “250” with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 221 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. A 7-seater car will also be available in the “200” version with a smaller 1.33-liter engine producing 163 hp. (250 Nm). If you want more power, you will have to wait for the version from Mercedes-AMG.

Journalists captured a test prototype of the high-performance crossover GLB 35, the official presentation of which can take place before the end of the year. Seeing the standard GLB and knowing how AMG modernizes cars for the “35” specification, it is easy to imagine what is hidden under heavy camouflage. Large front air intakes are already peeking through the masking film, and double rear exhaust shows even more that this is not the usual version of the GLB crossover.

The compact crossover got a tighter suspension setting – the car has less ground clearance. You can also notice big brakes. Under the hood can be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 302 horsepower (400 Nm), which will transmit torque to both axles. A 7-speed automatic transmission with double clutch will be installed as a gearbox.

  According to rumors, the novelty will be able to travel from 0 to 100 km / h in about five seconds, and the maximum speed will most likely be electronically regulated 250 km / h. Already seen GLB 45 S, which is likely to be released in 2020, will receive 416 hp power and 500 Nm.
