Mercedes-Benz India has launched two new SUVs in the country - the Mercedes GLB and Mercedes EQB.

Mercedes-Benz GLB

The Mercedes-Benz GLB is designed to look like a baby GLS with its boxy proportions, single-slat front grille, squared-off LED headlamps and split LED taillights.The cabin gets a familiar look with dual screens for the instrument console and infotainment system that runs the latest generation MBUX interface. The model comes equipped with ventilated powered seats, panoramic sunroof, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, seven airbags and more. More notably, it gets an additional third row of seats and is only the second SUV in Mercedes’ stable after the GLS to offer the same. Considering it comes at a highly attractive price point, the automaker is targeting young families with the GLB.

Mercedes-Benz EQB

The Mercedes-Benz EQB is the electric equivalent of the GLB and carries over several elements from the petrol and diesel powered version. The model is instantly recognisable as part of the GLB family but bringing the ‘EQ’ quotient with the blacked-out closed-off grille, while a horizontal LED strip above connects the headlights. The EQB rides on new 18-inch alloy wheels and the rear continues to sport the split LED taillights albeit connected by a chunky red bar on the tailgate. The cabin gets dual-screen set-up as well with the two 10.25-inch screens. There’s also powered seats with memory function, ambient lighting, a wireless charger, USB Type-C ports and more. The third row in both cars is best suited for kids or pets, while a full-size adult will be quite the squeeze.

Power on the Mercedes-Benz EQB comes from the single electric motor with 225 bhp and 390 Nm of peak torque. The motor is powered by a 66.5 kWh battery pack that offers a range of 423 km (WLTP Cycle) on a single charge. The EQB can be charged from 10-80 per cent in just 32 minutes using a 110 kW DC fast charger. However, an 11 kW AC charger takes about 6.5 hours.
