Mercedes-Benz Philippines is happy to announce that the high-performance version of the Mercedes-Benz GLB is now on sale in the Philippines. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35, with its seven seats, practical interior and significantly heightened performance, is now on sale across all Mercedes-Benz dealers nationwide.
Setting the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 apart from the standard GLB is its more aggressive exterior design. Its front end features an AMG-specific grille with its vertical bars along with a sportier front bumper. There’s also a set of aggressive 19-inch five twin-spoke alloy wheels, AMG roof spoiler, AMG high-performance brake system with silver brake calipers and black AMG lettering at the front. Everything else is carried over from the standard GLB, which means it’s still a very family-oriented luxury SUV, but with aggressiveness dialed up to 11.
Likewise, the interior of the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is more aggressive than the standard model. Drivers will appreciate the three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel in Nappa Leather and those body-hugging sport seats in black leather and microfiber upholstery. In addition, the MBUX infotainment system has been upgraded, now featuring two 10.25-inch screens as standard instead of the 7-inch screens in the standard model. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, along with AMG-specific displays in the infotainment system, a Burmester surround sound system and LED ambient lighting in 64 different colors.
Of course, the main reason you buy the AMG GLB 35 is because of its performance enhancements. The 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged gasoline engine produces 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque, sending power to all four wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Zero to 100 kph happens in just 5.2 seconds, while top speed is electronically-limited to 250 kph.
Safety is also a highlight in the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 as it comes standard with automatic emergency braking (marketed as Active Brake Assist), Attention Assist driver attention warning, reverse camera and Active Park Assist self-parking system.
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is now on sale for P5,690,000.
