The GLB is also equipped with the permanent all-wheel system 4MATIC, with fully variable torque distribution. This sporty all-wheel-drive configuration allows the driver to use the DYNAMIC SELECT switch to influence the characteristics of 4MATIC.

The latest driving assistance systems from the S-Class are also onboard the new GLB. Thanks to improved camera and radar systems, the GLB is able to see up to 500 meters ahead and drive in a semi-automated mode in certain situations.

This includes, for example, the convenient speed adjustment ahead of bends, junctions or roundabouts carried out by Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC.  The Active Lane Change Assist also features as a new function of the Active Steering Assist in the GLB, and if the Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC is additionally on board, it is included with the extended automatic restart function on motorways.

Speaking on the arrival of the new GLB, Mr. Mirko Plath, MD/CEO Weststar Associates Limited, said;

“We are proud to introduce this brand-new addition in the Mercedes-Benz family to this market. The new GLB caters to a growing demographic which we have also identified here in Nigeria. We strongly believe that our customers will embrace this new product as they have with our better-known products.”
