Auto Nation Group, Inc. launched the Mercedes- Benz GLB back in 2020, offering the AMG Line for buyers looking for a versatile premium compact seven-seater SUV.
This year, they follow up their smallest seven-seater offering in the local market with a new variant – the Progressive Line.
The Mercedes-Benz GLB 200 Progressive sports a slightly different look from the existing AMG Line variant. From the front, the crossover wears a two-liner front grille that matches the design of the simulated underguard below for a more rugged look. In addition, styling cues unique to the GLB 200 Progressive are the LED foglights and 19-inch ten-spoke alloy wheels.
Step inside and the GLB 200 Progressive greets you with ARTICO man-made leather seats compared to the black Dinamica microfiber upholstery found in the AMG Line. The dashboard is comprised of two screens that make up the digital instrument panel, as well as the media display itself. For the new Progressive variant, it now has a bigger 10.25-inch MBUX multimedia system that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, as well as USB.
It is still powered by the 1.3-liter inline-four turbo engine with 163 PS at 5500 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1520-4000 rpm. Power is transferred to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
As for its safety features, the GLB 200 Progressive is packed, and consists of things like Active Brake Assist, Active Parking Assist with 12 ultrasonic sensors, and Cruise Control as standard. It is also equipped with safety technologies including seven airbags, Attention Assist Drowsiness Detection, and ISOFIX child-seat mountings.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB 200 Progressive sits below the AMG Line in terms of pricing and starts at PHP 3.990-million. Interested? Auto Nation Group, Inc. says the compact SUV is now available for viewing in all Mercedes-Benz showrooms in Greenhills, Bonifacio Global City, Alabang, and Cebu City.
