Default 2020 Mercedes GLB

The long rumored, boxier and larger sister car to the GLA (based of the same platform), gioving Mercedes finally a proper X1/Q3 competitor (The GLA is just slightly too much of a raised hatchback size wise for that mission).

Interestingly, it looks like a more modern version of the GLK, that was replaced by the much more conventional and car like GLC, probably also giving an alternative to those who were missing the boxy ute in the Mercedes line up. Underneath of course it you usual FWD/AWD optional A-Class running gear, likely sharing most of teh engine line up and, by what little we can see form the interior, most of the dashboard with the A-Class/GLA as well.

Funny considering just how large the whole A-Class platform has grown since the first, tiny 3.5m long "I don't like elks" first generation appeared 20 years ago....
