Serving Fort Mitchell, KY

Many of our esteemed customers at Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell are excited to drive home in a luxury SUV soon, but they need more information about our top models to make a savvy vehicle selection. The Mercedes-Benz GLB is one of the newer SUVs in the lineup, and it is a compact crossover SUV. The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a midsize SUV that has been available since the 2015 model year, and it received a beautiful facelift for the current model year. These are only a few of the essential differences that could influence your SUV selection.

Performance

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is offered with one well-designed powertrain. This is a 4-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine that generates 221 horsepower. You can choose between the base model or a 4MATIC® variation. If you prefer to drive the GLC SUV, you can appreciate up to 255 horsepower from an inline 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine. As is the case with the GLB, the GLC is available in a standard and a 4MATIC® variation. The GLC is also offered with a hybrid powertrain. This hybrid design pairs an electric motor and regenerative braking with the same 2.0-liter powertrain, and it provides you with 315 combined horsepower.

Appearance

The exterior designs for these two SUVs are noticeably unique. In addition to the size difference between the smaller GLB and the larger GLC, you will notice that the GLB has a prominent stance that is defined by a stable, sculpted hood and a roof that fades only subtly downward as it reaches the rear tailgate. The front end has a 2-bar grille design, and both the headlights and the grille have a rectangular style with rounded corners. In comparison, the GLC’s profile is more tapered, and the hood rolls more dramatically toward the front. The grille and LED headlights have visible curvature that is not present in the GLB’s design. For both vehicles, you may appreciate power side mirrors with heat and turn signal integration, a power liftgate, a sunroof, foglamps, and numerous other items.
