Fuel & Gearbox
Mercedes-Benz is pushing its environmental credentials with a new range of Hybrid engine options for its line-up of cars and SUV's, and the 2020 Mercedes GLB will benefit from this with the GLB 250e Hybrid. It's the same tech as seen in the A-Class, with the 1.3 litre turbocharged petrol engine mated to a gearbox-mounted electric motor the kicks in at lower speeds, with a combined power output of 215 bhp, allowing either rapid acceleration off the line (0-60 in around 7 seconds) if both the petrol engine and electric motor are used in tandem, or electric only use, switching off the petrol engine entirely when in traffic and at lower speeds. The large 13.6kWh battery gives an electric only range of around 30 miles depending on speed, and is a plug-in hybrid model so you can charge it up overnight and have incredibly cheap commuting daily, with the petrol engine kicking in for longer runs. The GLA Hybrid will suit those who have home charging facilities (and remember to use them!) and those who do a low speed commute every day of maybe 10-15 miles sat in traffic and occasional longer journeys. If you mainly use the car for long distances and regular faster motorway work then the diesel will probably work out better for you.
