The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB SUV has just had its first appearance in the spotlight. The automaker recently released several design videos displaying exterior and interior features on the new SUV, to whet fans' appetite for the actual release. Here are just some of the amenities you can expect on this handsome new addition to the brand.

Optional Adaptable Third Row Seating

The 2020 GLB model's most interesting new feature is the optional third row, allowing up to seven passengers in a compact SUV. This spaciousness is a rare quality for the luxury compact SUV segment, giving the model an edge on its rivals.

The third row is adaptable and provides all the conveniences of the other two rows. Passengers in the rear-most seats will have their own fold-down cup holders and access to USB ports for charging devices. The SUV includes all of the safety features and airbags needed to help keep passengers safer. The third-row seats also fold flat if you need more space for transporting larger belongings on your next road trip or relocation.

Sleek and Tech Savvy Interior

The interior of the GLB takes its cues from the A-Class, from the style of the air vents to the console touchpad. Most striking is the new dash panel that also comes in the A-Class, a long horizontal HD touchscreen that houses both the instrument cluster and infotainment center design. It's safe to guess that the technology options will be on par with the newest Mercedes models.

Efficient Four-Cylinder Engine

The 2020 GLB is predicted to have similar powertrains to the previous generation, with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. But some are guessing that only all-wheel drive will be available on this iteration, with no front-wheel drive option, due to the third-row design.

Luxurious Trim Options

One trim portrayed in recent promotional videos is the special Edition 1. This edition looks highly luxurious inside and out, with top-of-the-line leather arrangements and electronics. This exclusive offering will be available for the first twelve months of production.
