The Mercedes-Benz GLB isn't just a good looking crossover with a desirable badge, it is a practical choice for those looking for more space and seats, too.

Review
Went to C&C to test drive this 7 seater SUV.

First looks, nice curves for a compact SUV meant to have 7 seats. Looking like a Land Rover Defender.

Inside, interior is a new look whereby the "Glass" Dashboard, with MBUX incorporated in it. Front seats kinda uptight and back not as spacious comparing with other 7 seater like Audi Q7 or Skoda Kodiaq or even a 5 seater SUV like Subaru Forester.

The Drive, moving off in COMFORT mode was ok but somehow gearshifts were a little slow in engagement. Then in SPORTS mode, the pushy is not there at all and tends to be noisy when revved hard.

There is no lane departure assist fitted too which is pretty essential in the city roads we have here and somehow is already a norm in many out there.

Otherwise, the full auto parking (reverse only) is a good to have where you do not even need your hands to engage gears or your foot on the brake. This car does it all the moment you engage the feature, got a lot and engage to R. Strange is does not come with parallel parking.

Overall, if you are not that particular in the drive and only want a Mercedes, this can be considerable, else for a fitting 7 seating SUV, there are others that serves better and lower price tag too.

What I like
Full auto parking (reverse only)
1.3L does save road tax

What I do not like
1.3L too draggy
No lane departure assist
Tight back cabin
Pricey
Many other things are "options"
