Mercedes-Benz has revealed that its new GLB will be launched in both gasoline and diesel engine variants. The four-cylinder units have been completely updated for the compact SUV.

The gateway to the gasoline-model range is the GLB 200, which is fitted with the 1.3-liter M 282 engine. The combined fuel consumption for this unit is between 6.2 and 6.0l/10km, while combined CO₂ emissions are between 142g/km and 147g/km. This engine has cylinder shut-off for efficient operation in the partial-load range.

Mercedes’s 2-liter M 260 engine in the GLB 250 – which has a combined fuel consumption of 7.4-7.2l/100km and combined CO₂ emissions of 169-165g/km – has cast-iron cylinder liners in its engine aluminum block, widening at the lower end.

Thanks to optimized exhaust gas aftertreatment, the 2-liter OM 654 diesel that sits at the heart of the GLB 200 d and GLB 220 d with the 8G-DCT dual-clutch transmission already meets the RDE level 2 and is certified in accordance with Euro 6d.

The engine outputs combined fuel consumption of 5.0-4.9l/100 km, and combined CO₂ emissions of between 133-129 g/km.
