It is expected that the new compact crossover, which will share many components and assemblies with the current generation of A-class, officially debuts later this summer. And its more powerful version will seem closer to the end of this year.

A couple of minutes ago, automobile publications published “spy” pictures of the “charged” German crossover Mercedes-AMG GLB 35. It is easy to notice the differences between the regular version of the model and the “charged” modification from Mercedes-AMG – wheels, massive brakes. In addition, the camouflage film hides the more aggressive farthing bumper and the Panamericana false radiator grille. Behind you can see the AMG brand exhaust pipes, despite the fact that the guys from Mercedes are trying to hide them with a small camouflage. TO

In addition, additional camouflage is created by nature itself – adhering snow hides some elements of the exterior.

Based on the current A-class generation, the compact GLB-Class will be built on the MFA2 platform. In theory, the composition of the motor range will be borrowed from the same place. This may mean that in the case of a “charged” version of the crossover under the hood there may be a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine from the A35, with a capacity of 302 horsepower, connected to the all-wheel drive system. A double-clutch gearbox with 7 speeds will be installed as a transmission. In addition, the GLB 35 is likely to get a reconfigured suspension to give the crossover a sporty character.

Like the sister 5-door hatchback A45, with a power of more than 400 hp, the GLB-Class can eventually get a similar power rating.

The usual version of the GLB-Class crossover will appear this summer, respectively, the “charged” GLB 35 will be presented at the end of this year.
