The official presentation of the German news will be held at the Shanghai Auto Show (China). The crossover is still shown as a concept.

The upcoming Auto Shanghai event in China intersects with the Beijing Auto Show, where in 2018 Mercedes introduced a rather peculiar crossover concept, the Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury. This year will debut another concept of the crossover, but it certainly will not be as controversial as the luxury hybrid sedan and SUV of strange shape, which was shown last year.

Many times seen as prototypes, the Mercedes GLB crossover is now available for acquaintance as a teaser that demonstrates much of the interior.

There is a possibility that we are dealing with an almost ready-to-produce concept, since the dashboard design is quite close to the current versions of other models of the brand.

What is GLB-Class, you ask? This is a new crossover, which, in the model range of the brand, will be located between the GLA and GLC crossovers. Test prototypes of new products, which foreign journalists spied on, every time hid the square shape of the car, reminiscent of the GLK crossover that does not exist today.

Everything, from the dual screens of the MBUX infotainment system and air vent design to the steering wheel and door card, hints that the new GLB will largely inherit the interior design of the current A-Class and CLA

Engines, gearboxes will be taken from other new compact Mercedes cars. Because of the square shape, the cabin of the new crossover will be much more spacious than that of the same GLA, and its carrying capacity will be higher.
