Mercedes-Benz plans baby G-Class, to be called the GLB

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is planning to introduce a smaller version of the popular G-Class, which will be called the GLB.

Mercedes-Benz is taking yet a step forward into creating small and cheaper models and the newest one to apparently catch the production line will be a baby G-Class. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to the guys from automobilemag.com, the model in question will be named the GLB and it will be based on the same platform used on the GLA crossover. This will be offered with an all-terrain body kit and it will easily stand out from a crowd.

The upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLB will also have an extended wheelbase and this will allow it to squeeze three rows of seats. The model will be coming with a series of four-cylinder engines signed by Mercedes-Benz and these will probably include the 2.0 liter diesel and the 2.0 liter gasoline burner. An AMG version, the GLB45, is also in the books. The Mercedes-Benz GLB is apparently codenamed the X247 and it should be hitting the production line sometimes in 2019. More details on it are currently limited for the moment.
