The *second* best SUV Mercedes makes: 2020 Mercedes Benz GLB 250

MotoMan drives a baby sized baby buggy from Mercedes, the 2020 Mercedes Benz GLB 250 and is completely surprised. Not because it’s a Mercedes. Not because the GLB250 is somewhat affordable. And not because this Benz is a wonderful contestant on our famous #OptionsGame. Rather, because this Mercedes Benz GLB SUV is really good in most areas - some beyond what Mercedes intended. Make certain you watch all the way to the end for a glimpse at Season 11 in this, our Season 10 finale . . .

    I totally agree with you about Mercedes steering. I learned to drive on my dads GL, and I struggled immensely. I ran over so many curbs because I couldn’t read where the wheels were pointing. I did really love that car though, and I eventually got the hang of it. I wish there was a little more steering feedback

    GLB.... B stands for BOOB.

    It seems quite noisy inside. How is it compared to Glc in terms of quietness and comfort? Any big difference?

    Less in both regards. Tested both. The GLC feels more refined. The GLB drove fine, but there was some noise as it’s fairly boxy. It’s actually smaller looking inside and out when you’re actually with it. If you’re looking for a family vehicle though you can find a dozen better options though. You put 3-4 people in it and you feel like you’re in a Honda Fit.

    Normally I agree with your opinions. But I respectfully completely disagree with you on the GLB... you see this car on dealership lots is so close in price to the GLC which is a vastly superior vehicle to drive, makes no sense to buy the GLB. On the other end the Mazda CX-5 grand touring reserve or the Signature would completely blow this atrocious excuse of a 3 pointed star. The GLB is WAY over priced. The handling dynamics are garbage. The only thing saving this car is the engine power. Everything else you can get for a better value in the Mazda CX-5 with the SAME amount of power FOR LESS. Dare I say the interior quality on the Mazda is superior to the GLB! This car is simply for a brand snob and cares about nothing else. And if you need a 3rd you’re better off with a Tiguan. Again both the Tiguan and the Mazda give you so much more equipment for the money and the refinement in the Mazda is better to the GLB.

    We took the GLB out for a test drive this past weekend. We also drove the Hyundai Palisade. Personally, I found the Palisade too big for me. I like the room, but I don’t feel comfortable driving huge SUVs. We also have an elderly parent living with us. So the height of the vehicle has to be taken into account. I think the GLB checked off all the items on my list. First, the car does not feel like a big SUV. Second, it’s the right height- you don’t have to climb into the car. Third, I have a short reach (not tall person) and not having to lean forward to access the touch screen was a big plus. MB offers (standard) a kind of mouse pad right were your right and rests. So I can access everything without having to move from my driving position at all. MB also offers like a Siri OS for the car. So you can do a lot of things via voice commands. Fourth, the 3rd row seat option means you don’t have to get into a larger SUV in order to get extra seating. I felt comfortable driving it and I though the handling and shift transitions were very smooth. I think MB did a great job with this vehicle and we’ll be leasing the GLB within the next couple of weeks.

    Lol. I literally just did the opposite of you lol. We took the GLB out for about 30 minutes and drove it around. I’m 6’02” and had to put the drivers seat all the way back. This pretty much removed any leg room for the left side rear seat. I found the seat too narrow and it dug into my thigh on the left side to the point it went from uncomfortable to hurting. My wife and I also fought over the seemingly 6” of center armrest. The third row...well, that’s just a joke. There’s no way any adult of average size is going to go back there and you’d even struggle to put anything but the smallest kid(s) in it. Plus with a third row up there’s practically no cargo space. Went and drove the palisade and that was just crazy room. No problem putting nearly any person in any of those seats. Not to mention I got it for less than the GLB and it came with so much more. V6, real leather, sunroof, 3 years maintenance, long warranty, the insurance was lower and it runs on regular gas. I’m not knocking the Benz. We all liked it, but it’s just not very practical unless you’re only ever going to have 1-3 people in it and still don’t mind feeling a tad cramped. I also drove the Tiguan SEL premium RLine. That felt much larger than the GLB as well. They say these start around $36k or so, but realistically you won’t find one under $41K or so and that’s still not with real leather, navigation, sat radio etc. if you want stuff like that you can quickly get to upper $40s. Buy what you like though I always say.

    We drove one the week the dealers got them. Liked it a lot, it drove really well and the interior is nicely done. But $30k+ change over from our perfectly fine 2015 GLK was too much.

    Looks good, but the price is no bueno. Just get a used gle for much less and enjoy the cliff depreciation that is a Mercedes hallmark as much as their paint quality.

  • Pete TheHawk

    Yea the price is hard to swallow for the size and overall what you get. Especially if you’re trying to keep the MSRP lower. To get it with just the upgraded screens and ambient lighting and heated front seats you’re around $41500. When you’re over 40grand and still not getting satellite radio, real leather, premium audio, a sun/pano roof, upgraded wheels, all the safety tech etc, it’s hard to swallow when you know you can get most if not all of that in many other vehicles. I’ve had Jaguar and BMW before and that’s just the luxury badge game. The day after I test drove a GLB we bought a Palisade.

    This is not intended for US market but the European market. We don't like nor need too big car. It cots a lot in here. Plus here we have the 2.0 diesel engine which is quite good and has enough power even to tow a trailer. I own a BMW Gran Tourer which is a 7 seat and I have the 2.0 diesel engine. It has enough power and torque, also it is a very economical engine.

    I am an SUV Guy and appreciate you reviewing and giving your expert opinion for this segment. Thanks for your take on the MB GLB 250 as this is an important new vehicle to consider among the competition. I think the Night Package gives this model a striking look especially with the all black Rims and Grill. The Up front In Your Face very large gage and infotainment screen may be a good reason to put the GLB on ones short list. Zero to Sixty time appears to be adequate and will all of the options to customize your preference most all of your concerns are addressed.

    answer: GLB for me shape wise. truly not a fan of coupe-shaped SUVs, whoever had the idea got a special place in hell hehehe. also don´t make us wait too long for that 992 vs m8.... I got something for those 992s, specially that interior. thanks to you MotoMan, in my opinion all the new things going on in the channel are helping it grow and get into more and more people, not only that but in some way also educate and teach other more about how great the auto world is and obviously the amazing people behind it, thousands of amazing stories behind. Happy holidays to u too. thanks for being there with the good work.... let´s continue in 2020 :)
