Throughout the exciting show, the team showcased their exciting new Concept GLB. This new model is a crossover SUV, which has been one of, if not the most popular, vehicle segments with drivers today.  

Where the crossover segment has plenty of positives such as affordability and efficiency, some drivers wish these kind of models offered a bit more space and power. With the new Concept GLB from Mercedes-Benz, the team is hoping to combat those concerns by offering a powerful and spacious new model, all while remaining sporty and compact.
