There were photos of the crossover Mercedes-AMG GLB in the charged version 45July 4, 2019
So far, we can consider a novelty on “spy” pics – the journalists who made them claim that they caught a more powerful AMG GLB 45. This prototype was captured at a gas station not far from the Nurburgring race track.
Mercedes-Benz presented its new GLB-Class compact crossover at the beginning of June this year, but we have to wait a little while until a high-performance version from AMG appears.
From a technical point of view, we cannot say with certainty whether it is the GLB 45 or a slightly less powerful version of the GLB 35.
Usually, we could notice the difference with a quick glance at the back of the car, where a set of four exhaust pipes would show that it is version 45. We have only two connections on this car, although they are obviously not standard for GLB 35. The wheels also do not help to identify the car.
Ultimately, both powerful versions of the crossover will have a similar appearance with a more aggressive appearance – a modified front and rear bumper, as well as the brand-name false radiator grille Panamericana. Crossovers will also receive upgraded brakes and suspension. The GLB 35 should get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a power of 302 horsepower, and the more powerful GLB 45 will probably also have the same engine. Only its power will be higher – 416 hp is expected. At least it should offer at least 383 hp.
We haven’t heard from Mercedes about when the AMG version of the GLB crossover will debut. According to logic, the GLB 35 should appear sometime at the end of this year, perhaps in September or even earlier. GLB 45 may appear either very late this year, or, most likely, in early 2020.
