AMG® Trim


In 2020, Mercedes-Benz rolled out the GLB class SUV, offering a nice place between their GLA and GLC models. In 2021, the GLB has gotten even better! When comparing the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB vs. the 2020, what has changed? Well, for one, there’s an all-new AMG® trim, not to mention interior additions that make this one of the best Mercedes-Benz SUVs yet. Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines is going to walk you through it!


2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Interior

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is a spacious vehicle with seating for five with the optional upgrade to seven. You’ve got plenty of room to relax in Des Moines with such great features like the Mercedes-Benz User Experience. However, with the 2021 model, you’ve got voice control with natural language understanding that can adapt to the way you speak and a 64-color ambient lighting scheme that can light your GLB for any mood.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Technology


One thing that Mercedes-Benz prizes in its cars and SUVs is its suite of safety features. On both the 2020 and 2021 GLB models, you’re getting an advanced suite of safety features, such as Attention Assist, Brake Assist, and Active Lane Change Assist. In either case, Des Moines drivers will be among the safest on the road behind the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz GLB.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Performance

One big difference between the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB and its 2020 counterpart is the addition of an AMG® trim. AMG® is the Mercedes-Benz performance model line and the GLB 35, the AMG® trim for the 2021 GLB, provides you with tons of extra oomph compared to the 2020 model. For instance, with the AMG® trim, you top out at a muscly 302 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque while on the 2020 GLB, you top out at 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. That’s perfect for cruising on open roads in Des Moines.
