The GLB for the Philippine is definitely the beefiest looking Merc ever. Its total length measures at 4,634mm along with a width of 2,020mm, and a height of 1,658mm. Apart from its inherently macho looking shape, the GLB 200 for the Philippine market is also given an AMG Line look. Up front, its diamond pattern front grille is adorned with chrome pins, it rides on AMG 5-twin-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels, and its LED headlights look different.

Inside, the GLB 200 AMG Line is equipped with seven seats covered in Artico leather and Dinamica fabric, and a lot of luxurious soft-touch surfaces. It also has a wealth of features including an electronically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, an Eco start/stop function, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control with Speedtronic variable speed limiter, and active parking assist with Parktronic.

Some people will definitely need that parking assist due to how large the GLB is

One of the most notable interior features of the GLB, however, is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) in-car personal assistant, which works closely together via the GLB’s seven-inch touchscreen. It can take commands via voice and it can set up calls and many other important activities without needing to touch your phone and taking your hands off of the steering wheel.
