Serving Louisville, KY

Are you trying to decide which small luxury crossover is perfect for your expectations? The Mercedes-Benz lineup holds two premium possibilities for you to consider, including the subcompact GLB crossover and the compact GLC crossover. Both of these exciting options are mid-generation models that are loaded with class. At Mercedes-Benz of Louisville, we always have an incredible selection of options in stock for you to explore, and we are thrilled to help you compare the options. What can you expect from the GLB and the GLC?


The 2022 GLB is offered with two powertrains across its three trim levels. The first two trim levels have a 221-horsepower, four-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. The primary performance-based difference between the first two trim levels is the drivetrain. One has front-wheel drive, and the other has 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This model is the GLB 250. The other GLB model has an enhanced version of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It draws 302 horsepower from this engine, and it comes with standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This model is known as the AMG® GLB 35.

The GLC, on the other hand, comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission in its first few trim levels. This 255-horsepower system comes standard with front-wheel drive, and it’s available with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This model is known as the GLC 300. The top GLC model is known as the AMG® GLC 43. This model uses a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 385 horsepower, and it comes standard with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive.


The GLB has a small stature with an upright, confident profile. The nose is relatively tall and flat. A black grille enhances it with vertical bars and rectangular LED headlights. Black molding runs from end to end. Aluminum roof rails, a power liftgate, and heated side mirrors are standard for all trim levels. The GLC is slightly larger than the GLB, and it has more curvature and definition throughout its façade. Like the GLB, the GLC has vertical bars on its grille. This grille extends farther out to connect with the LED-outlined headlights. The sides have scooped contouring. Power-folding side mirrors and a power liftgate are standard exterior features for all GLC’s trims.


You will find many of the same features in the GLB and the GLC. These two-row crossover SUVs are available with features like the MBUX infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, simulated leather upholstery, keyless entry, a push-start ignition, an auto climate control system, and a variety of advanced driver’s aids. There are several trim-specific differences in standard and available features that our sales reps are happy to tell you about.
