The Mercedes-AMG GLB35 4Matic has been revealed ahead of an Australian release in the second quarter of 2020.
Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 225kW and 400Nm. Power is sent to the AMG calibrated 4Matic all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The torque split ranges from purely front-wheel drive to a 50:50 distribution between the front and rear axle.
In terms of performance, Mercedes-AMG claims the car can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds.
Underneath the AMG suspension has been tuned to minimise body roll during high-speed cornering. The steering knuckles and transverse control arms at the front axle, as well as the model-specific subframe and the wheel carriers at the rear axle have been redesigned.
The front axle is fitted with four-piston fixed calipers clamping 350mm discs, while the rear gets one-piston floating calipers with 330mm discs.
The GLB35 is distinguishable by an AMG-specific radiator grille, a rear apron with two single tailpipe trim elements, an AMG roof spoiler and 19 to 21-inch wheels.
Moving to the inside, buyers get the latest AMG steering wheel and the MBUX infotainment system that comprises two 12.3-inch screens.
Like the standard GLB, the AMG35 will be offered with seven seats. Depending on the configuration cargo space varies between 560L and 1755L.
The AMG GLB35 is scheduled to arrive locally in the second quarter of 2020, specifications and pricing will be confirmed closer to the launch date.
