2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB

Serving Fort Mitchell, KY

Luxury and functionality blend together beautifully in the Mercedes-Benz SUVs. For 2020, the SUV line is robust and filled with exciting possibilities. At Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell, our customers who are in the market for a smaller crossover SUV often debate between the GLA and the GLB. The GLA is a compact luxury crossover that recently blazed into its second generation with exciting updates. The GLB is a subcompact luxury crossover that is a new addition to the Mercedes-Benz line for 2020. Before selecting your next SUV, spend a few minutes learning more about the differences between these two impressive options.


The GLA for 2020 is outfitted with a 2.0-liter, inline-4 engine that may impress you with 208 horsepower. This engine is connected to a 7-speed auto dual-clutch transmission, electric steering, a multi-link rear suspension system, a MacPherson front strut, front-wheel drive, anti-locking brakes, and other items. The GLB has the same gas-powered engine as the GLA carries, and it pairs this with an 8-speed auto transmission to produce 221 horsepower. Its supporting mechanical features are comparable to those in the GLA SUV.


The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA has a confident presence thanks to its lowered stance and sleek, set-back profile. While the hood lines trend toward the grille, the side contouring trends firmly over the front fenders toward the rear. The grille carries a defined, dual-bar design, and robust headlights flank it with an edgy LED ribbon. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB, on the other hand, has a compact yet proud stance. Its hood and roof have relatively level angles. The sides have smooth surfaces with a straight definition above the rocker panels. The GLB shares its grille design with the GLA. The headlights have a more rectangular shape, and dual-LED ribbons highlight this. The GLB also has a skid plate at the front end.


The 2020 GLA is a 5-passenger SUV that is well-appointed with luxuries and technologies throughout its cabin. The GLB is a 5-passenger SUV that is loaded with features as well, and it is available with an optional third row. Across both of these SUVs, you can appreciate easy access to items like leather material, heat and memory functions, a power liftgate, keyless start, a navigation system, smart device integration, steering wheel touch controls, Bluetooth® technologies, USB-C ports, and many other desired features.
