GLB Configurations & Performance

The GLB 250 and the GLB 250 4MATIC® spearhead the GLB SUV lineup, and both are outfitted with a 2.0L Inline-4 Turbo engine that makes 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) offers precise shifting, while a comfort suspension absorbs the rough spots on Chicago roads. Want added traction to take on Chicagoland winters? The 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system on the GLB 250 4MATIC® model gives you the grip needed for our ice and snow.

GLB Safety Features

When it comes to safety, the GLB doesn’t leave anything to chance. The ATTENTION ASSIST® driver attention monitor quickly uses over 70 parameters to learn your driving habits, and will then alert you if you appear to be getting drowsy. Active Brake Assist and Adaptive Braking Technology work together to help you stop when needed in Cook County traffic. Other safety features delivering comfort of consciousness include:

  • Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call Service
  • Crosswind Assist
  • Rearview Camera
  • Antitheft Alarm
