What’s Newly Include in 2022 

The new upgrades in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class include the following features:

  • SiriusXM satellite radio and a 115-volt power outlet are now included with the premium package.

Engine, Transmission, and Fuel Efficiency

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 221 horsepower lies behind the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class’s big, grille-mounted three-pointed star. The engine is paired with either front- or all-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An all-wheel-drive example scored a 6.0-second zero-to-60-mph time at the test track.

The EPA estimates that front-wheel-drive GLBs will get 23 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined; the all-wheel-drive version will get the same ratings except on the highway, where it will get 30 mpg. With a 32 mpg result, the GLB250 4Matic outperformed its EPA rating, exceeding a comparable X1 by 1 mpg.

What is the seating capacity?

The GLB seats five people, but it has a third row accommodating seven passengers, unlike many of its rivals. The first- and second-row seats are comfortable and give enough head- and legroom even for taller occupants. On short trips, the optional third row is roomy enough for little children but not for adults.

Interior Quality

Although the entry-level GLB-class isn’t very well furnished, it features front power seats, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel as standard equipment. Heated seats and ventilated seats are additional, and the third row of seats is optional. Most buyers will spend money on premium items like leather upholstery and interior ambient lighting for their GLB250.

Cargo Space

The GLB-class has a roomy interior, with 20 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats and 62 cubic feet when those seats are folded down, nearly matching the size of the BMW X3.

Safety Features

Cruise control, active brake aid, and adaptive braking are standard on the GLB-class, and safety features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and active blind-spot help are optional.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

While the GLB-class lacks a lot of standard interior equipment, it makes up for it with its infotainment and technology upgrades. A 7.0-inch digital gauge display and 7.0-inch touchscreen are standard, while the Premium package has dual 10.3-inch screens, and a color head-up display is an optional extra. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four USB-C connections, and Bluetooth are all options for connecting your phone to the GLB250. A wireless charging pad is a $200 option for charging your phone wirelessly.
