Published prices for the new Mercedes-AMG GLB 35December 19, 2019
The German automaker has announced the start of accepting orders for the “charged” version of the compact crossover GLB.
The new Mercedes-AMG GLB with an index of 35, which will be the most powerful compact model of the brand until the release of version 45, is available in Germany at a price of 54,549 euros, offering as an option a 7-seater configuration. The taller “brother” of the Mercedes A35 uses the same power plant, that is, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine developing 302 hp. power and torque of 400 Nm. It transfers power to the 4Matic all-wheel drive system via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
This makes the small Mercedes SUV capable of speeds of 100 km / h in 5.2 seconds with Launch Control and a top speed of 250 km / h. The separation of the torque of the four-wheel drive system varies from a purely front-wheel drive to an even distribution of 50:50 between the axles depending on road conditions.
The hotter version of the GLB is also equipped with special steering knuckles and wishbones at the front, along with its own subframe and wheel bearings at the rear, for even sharper steering response and better lateral dynamics. A suspension with AMG tuning (adaptive as an option), a speed-sensitive steering rack and larger brakes complete the chassis upgrade.
The GLB 35 also offers five different driving modes – Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport + and Individual. The interior has more comfortable sports seats, partially covered in leather, with red stitching, special AMG displays, a steering wheel with a sloping bottom and much more.
As standard, the new Mercedes AMG GLB 35 will come with 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, and wheels up to 21 inches in size are available at an additional cost.
