This is the impressive and high performing Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 4Matic which is the flagship for the range and will arrive in showrooms in the summer.
With prices starting from £48,665, drivers will get to enjoy a well-designed and well-crafted car that will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just over five seconds.
Unlike the GLB sibling, the GLB 35 has five seats as standard, though a third row can be selected from the options list so it becomes a seven-seater.
Other options worth considering include the firm’s electronic adaptive suspension if you really fancy putting this impressive car through its paces.

This is the same unit that is found in the A 35 hatchback and saloon and there’s also the firm’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
Speed is controlled by the eight-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and the all-wheel-drive delivers the grip necessary to enjoy the power.

Other kit includes aluminium accents and an AMG flat-bottomed steering wheel that has gearshift paddles.
The seats are more supportive and sportier and as well as been electrically adjustable, they are available in either two-tone or black leather.
The interior ambient lighting system offers 64-colour choices and there’s a premium stereo system to enjoy.

Drivers also get rear cross traffic monitoring, blindspot monitoring as well as evasive steering assist to help drivers avoid an unseen obstacle.
