Mercedes GLB (Concept)
Besides the weird/macho bits for the New York Auro Show, this is basically the new Mercedes GLB we will be seeing later this year as a production car.
This is similar to what Kia did with the Telluride and that off-road “concept” version they had shown just a few weeks before the production model.
This will please people who miss the square look of the old GLC. I guess.
And it does seem that Mercedes is kind of doing something similar to what Ford is doing with the new Escape and that “baby Bronco” model.
One is basically a car, and the other one has a more rugged look.
The car one for Mercedes will be the next GLA.
I am glad they made an effort to come up with a few new bits for the interior. (It is not a straight A-Class interior)
But who picked and approved the concept’s interior color pattern and textures??
The whole thing makes it look like the interior of a cheap room off the main strip in Las Vegas.
And this is from a “luxury brand”??!!
