With the Concept GLB at Auto Shanghai , Mercedes-Benz shows what SUV ideas on the company’s compact car platform might also be realised alongside the GLA. The concept car has space for up to seven occupants thanks to its long wheelbase (2829 millimetres).
“We asked ourselves whether there is still space between the GLA and GLC in our successful SUV range. The Concept GLB is the answer to this question. With it we are demonstrating the creative ideas we have for this segment, too”, says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales. “The Concept GLB is a durable and practical SUV with nonetheless compact dimensions. Whether it is a generous, seven-seater family vehicle or a versatile leisure time companion: we are certain that this concept will be of great interest to our customers.”
