After our first video analysis of the GLB 2021, there was only one detail to know, and that was its price. Thus, today we can already discover what the prices of the Mercedes GLB 2021 will be in the Spanish market, rates that allow us to more accurately locate this Mercedes GLB among its rivals SUVs of up to 7 seats. With an unprecedented recipe to date in the Mercedes range, this GLB aims to take a part of the market where we find rivals such as the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace or the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
The new GLB represents Mercedes’ commitment to creating a family-friendly vehicle in a segment where until now the firm had not offered this type of recipe. Based on the same platform as the Class A or the future GLA, the main characteristic of this GLB is in the increase of its battle to 2,829 mm to offer as much space as possible inside.
In this way, we find the possibility of opting for 5 or 7-seater configurations, with a trunk that in a 5-seat version offers 570 liters of volume.
In the Spanish market, there will be 5 engines that will offer the new Mercedes GLB, although the top-of-the-line variant Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 will not be available until later. Thus, the Mercedes GLB will have a starting price of 42,675 euros for the 150 hp GLB 200d diesel version (2.0 turbodiesel) and the 163 hp GLB 200 petrol version (1.33 Turbo).
Above these engines that for the moment will sign the access of range we find the GLB 200d 4MATIC from 45,000 euros, the GLB 220d 4MATIC (2.0 turbodiesel of 190 CV) from 47,350 euros and the GLB 250 4Matic (2.0 Turbo gasoline of 224 CV ) from 55,000 euros.
All engines have a C emissions label, although at the registration tax level we find that GLB is taxed with 4.75% on all engines, except for the most powerful gasoline propeller that makes the jump to 9, 75%.
Those interested in adding the third row of seats to the Mercedes GLA will have to make an extra payment of 1,037.45 euros on engines taxed with 4.75% of the IM or 1,078.69 euros on engines taxed with 9.75 % of IM. This sixth and seventh place offers a retractable design that allows it to be folded on the boot floor, adding two additional ISOFIX anchors, two USB Type-C sockets, and the longitudinal adjustment mechanism for the second row of seats (140 mmm).
