The highly anticipated 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLB is set to hit the Australian market this week, showcasing a range of updates that promise to elevate this seven-seat SUV to new heights.

Power Meets Efficiency: The Heart of the GLB

Under the hood, the GLB range boasts a 48V mild-hybrid system, a significant addition to enhance both performance and efficiency.

Exterior Facelift and Lighting Brilliance

The 2024 facelift brings a refreshed front bumper, full-LED headlights, and tail lights, contributing to the GLB's contemporary and stylish look. The redesigned exterior, coupled with the updated lighting elements, adds a touch of sophistication to the overall design.

Luxury and Tech-Driven Interior

Step inside the cabin, and you'll be greeted by the latest generation of the MBUX infotainment system. This system not only offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto but also showcases a more refined and advanced voice assistant. The core GLB models now feature an AMG Line exterior as standard, along with a panoramic glass sunroof, 19-inch AMG five-spoke alloy wheels, heated front seats, and electric front seats with memory, all while sporting metallic paint.

Drivetrain Options for Varied Tastes

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLB range offers a variety of drivetrains to cater to different driving preferences.

On the other hand, the GLB 250 4Matic is equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, producing a robust 165kW and 350Nm. Finally, the flagship AMG GLB 35 4Matic packs a punch with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that boasts an impressive 225kW and 400Nm.

Safety Upgrades for Peace of Mind
