N The Mercedes-AMG 35 is still heavily camouflaged, but the prototype already reveals some information about the optics and technology

Drive and transmission

The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is the entry-level model into the AMG world. The two-liter turbo gasoline engine known from the Mercedes AMG A35 works under the hood. It achieves 306 hp and applies 400 Nm to the crankshaft. The unit is coupled with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. This comes with a race start function, a type of launch control that optimizes speed and power transmission for maximum acceleration from a standing start. The AMG GLB35 has 4-Matic all-wheel drive as standard. The 45 AMG version then comes with 408 hp.

This is what the new Mercedes GLB could look like.

Similar to the A-Class, a system with a multi-plate clutch distributes each the engine power between the axles depending on the driving situation. Under normal driving conditions, the 35-GLB is on the road with front-wheel drive, but up to 50 percent of the engine power can be directed to the rear axle as required. The driving dynamics system knows a total of five driving programs. In addition to “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport +” and “Individual”, there is also a “smoothness” mode, which is supposed to lead to safe driving behavior on slippery surfaces with reduced power, gentle gear changes and early upshifts. Internally ventilated and perforated disc brakes ensure negative acceleration.

Exterior and interior

The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 should be recognizable as a member of the AMG family. These include the grill with double lamellas and AMG lettering, bumpers with spoiler flaps and side sill panels. The rear is dominated by an apron with a diffuser and large, round tailpipes on the right and left. As standard, the GLB 35 rolls on 18 inches, 19 inches are available for extra eurosAlloy rims inside. The Mini-GLS can also be upgraded with the aerodynamics package.

As with the A-Class, the GLB customer will grab a sports steering wheel and look at a fully digital cockpit with MBUX infotainment system. The wide, free-standing display allows three AMG display styles to be displayed. In supersport mode, the rev counter is centrally arranged and draped around it, driving dynamics displays. Otherwise, the driver and front passenger sit on contoured sports seats and can enjoy the various AMG logos.
