Mercedes-Benz has added an AMG variant of its latest compact SUV to its lineup for the 2021 model year.

The new 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 injects the broadly acclaimed Mercedes-Benz GLB compact SUV with world-class performance and eye-catching styling flourishes.

The Mercedes-Benz GLB arrived just last year as a compact SUV that bridges the gap between the Mercedes-Benz GLA and Mercedes-Benz GLC. The versatile, handsome model earned praise from critics and buyers alike.

Now, the brand has taken this model a step further with a new powertrain, new looks, and a high-performance personality that's sure to thrill enthusiasts.

Sporty Styling Cues

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 gets an array of cosmetic upgrades compared to the standard model. A more aggressive front fascia features a new grille design and black trim pieces. Various chrome and black trim pieces across the body give the model a sleek appearance overall. Inside the cabin, red accents and a smattering of piano black and chrome likewise create a sporty feel.

Potent Powertrain

Performance is where this model really differentiates itself. The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 comes with a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 302 horsepower. It's mated to a standard AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT eight-speed automatic transmission. Together, they propel the SUV from zero to 60 mph in just over five seconds and on to a top speed of 155 mph.

Performance Tech

It's not just the powerful engine and slick-shifting transmission that gives the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 a performance edge. The model also boasts technology to help maximize its performance potential.

For starters, these models come with AMG DYNAMIC SELECT featuring five selectable drive modes.

  • Slippery
  • Comfort
  • Sport
  • Sport +
  • Individual

Drivers can toggle through the various performance modes to adjust to the conditions at hand. Whether you're commuting, traversing snow, or simply enjoying a back-road cruise, these modes can help you maximize your experience.

Finally, the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive system will come standard on all 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 models. This popular system can vary power delivery across all four wheels to maximize traction and handling in a variety of conditions.

The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 also offers an upgraded suspension system that's designed to balance direct handling with long-distance comfort.

Refined, Yet Practical Cabin

You'll find classic Mercedes-Benz style and comfort inside the cabin of the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35. But alongside this refinement, you'll also get plenty of practicality.

Standard features inside this model include sport seats wrapped in MB-Tex and DINAMICA microfiber. Red accent stitching and red seat belts are added for extra visual flair. A ream of creature comforts like automatic climate control come standard.

On the utilitarian side, the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 does well. Its rear liftgate and folding rear seats mean you'll have plenty of cargo space to access. Plus, it's available with an optional third row of seats that expands passenger capacity to seven -- an impressive distinction for this segment.
