2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB Drivetrain Options and Drive Modes
All 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Each engine is paired with a standard front-wheel drive system and offers an available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system* as an available upgrade. Models equipped with the 4MATIC® AWD* upgrade are also outfitted with three DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes including Eco/Comfort Mode, Sport Mode, and Off-Road Mode.
Eco/Comfort mode is the preferred selection for daily driving in nice weather. With 80-percent of the power distributed to the front axle and 20-percent distributed to the rear axle, Eco/Comfort mode offers the best balance of performance, handling, and fuel economy.
Perfect for joy rides, Sport Mode increases power to the rear wheels to optimize handling and on-road performance. While Sport Mode will sacrifice fuel economy and is not recommended for daily use, it’s a great option for winding roads or sharp maneuvering.
When the going gets tough, off-road mode delivers equal power to the front and back axle and the clutch performs like an inter-axle differential lock. Off-Road Mode increases the SUV’s versatility and ensures that drivers can confidently go where they need to.
Starting at $36,600**, the 2020 GLB is the most affordable in the Mercedes-Benz SUV family.
