Performance SpecsMercedes-Benz GLB

When you’re commuting into the city, it’s important to have a powerful vehicle that can get you there in no time. The 2022 GLB can be that model for you. When you get behind the wheel, you’ll find yourself operating a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine.

This engine delivers 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s also mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which will provide smooth shifting. You could also use paddle shifters with this transmission.

When it comes to driving, you’ll also have four standard DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes to choose from. Plus, you can keep the standard front-wheel drive or upgrade to get the available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system, which includes:

  • Loose-surface mode
  • Downhill Speed Regulation
  • Off-road graphic display & more


As a compact SUV, the 2022 GLB has a smaller stance without compromising on comfort. While you’ll find a standard 2-row configuration and room for five passengers, you can also opt for an additional third row. This will up your passenger capacity to seven.

Wondering how much room you and your passengers will have to stretch out? Let’s look:

  • Headroom (first/second/third): 40.7 inches/39.3 inches/34.8 inches
  • Legroom (first/second/third): 41.1 inches/38.1 inches/29.1 inches
  • Shoulder Room (first/second/third): 55.9 inches/54.9 inches/43.8 inches

This is enough room for everyone to spread out no matter how long the drive is. When it comes to cargo room, you’ll find 22 cubic feet behind the second row, though this can be extended to 62 cubic feet when you fold that row down. So, if you need to stop at the gym or elsewhere after work, you can easily pack your bag in the back.

As for other interior amenities, you’ll enjoy the standard power front seats with 3-position memory and dual-zone automatic climate control. You could also add available:

  • Panorama roof
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Ventilated front seats

With all the stopping and going during rush hour, you’ll want some entertainment to keep you motivated. The standard central in-dash color touchscreen is seven inches and can be controlled in three different ways:

  • Right Touch Control Button on steering wheel
  • Touchpad on the console
  • Directly touching the screen

You can play your favorite music and connect your smartphone via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility. If you’d rather discover new songs and artists, you could go classic and use the HD Radio® technology to listen to both AM and FM radio.
