Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2020 marks the first year for the GLB-Class, a compact SUV slotted between the GLA-Class and GLC-Class. It comes standard in a two-row configuration but has a three-row option that offers seating for up to seven.
The 2020 GLB-Class starts at $37,595 including destination fees, and has a few deals to sweeten the pot this month.
If you want the latest model year, the 2021 GLB-Class is hitting showrooms now and has a cash rebate.
Current offers are available nationally and expire on September 30, 2020. We expect no new GLB-Class offers for Labor Day.
Financing-free loyalty rebate on 2021:
The 2021 GLB-Class has a $1,000 bonus for current Mercedes owners. Unlike the loyalty bonus on the 2020 GLB-Class, this doesn't require special financing.
Promotional financing continues:
The 2020 GLB-Class continues with 2.99% APR financing for 72 months.
On top of this new financing, existing Mercedes owners may qualify for a $1,000 loyalty bonus when financing through Mercedes-Benz Financial.
There are no APR offers on the 2021 GLB-Class yet.
The 2020 GLB250 Premium's 36-month promotional lease offer starts at $429 ($10 increase) per month with $3,723 ($10 increase) due at signing. This lease allows up to 10,000 miles per year.
With an effective monthly cost of $532 ($10 increase), this offer is not a good value relative to the vehicle's MSRP.
There are no promotional lease offers on the 2021 GLB-Class yet.
