Design, safety and comfort. It's all there in the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLB 250

It's the SUV re-imagined. I have to admit that my initial impressions at the launch were mixed, but after spending time with the GLB 250, this SUV really grew on me to such an extent that when I had to return the vehicle, I did so grudgingly. In short, I loved it. The GLB 250 is re-fined and certainly re-imagined which makes it impossible to notice.
