Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class was spotted on winter testsJanuary 11, 2018
It will be designed for those customers who like Gelendvagen, but it does not have enough money.
On the snow-covered roads of Scandinavia, photo spies have spotted a prototype of the future compact Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class crossover. He has already received the original body, covered in some places not only with digital film, but also with overlays.
The absolutely new GLB-Class will be based on the GLA-Class and A-Class platform, which will be presented this spring in Geneva. The novelty will have a more square silhouette, unlike soplatformennikov.
Interestingly, the visually test specimen of the GLB-Class is externally larger than the GLA-Class crossover. This is especially felt in the rear of the body, which is even higher than the soplatform model. Also do not exclude that the sharp corners of the rear panels of the body can be just a camouflage, and under them are hidden more aerodynamically adjusted parts.
In the rear of the cabin there is enough space to accommodate the third row of seats. According to photo spies, it will indeed be available for the novelty. It is also reported that the proprietary 4Matic all-wheel drive system will be included in standard equipment. Motor range can include gasoline engines and turbodiesel capacity from 90 to 380 horsepower.
The expected cost of the GLB-Class will be from 30,000 euros.
