The upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLB has been spotted in public again, this time sporting what appears to be the eventual production-specification lights front and rear, giving us a better glimpse into its eventual shape, even though there is still some body cladding applied.

Its more boxy exterior design draws from the Gelandewagen and therefore looks considerably larger than its GLA stablemate, despite sharing the MFA2 platform with that car’s future replacement. The GLB will be positioned in the line-up as a more rugged model, much like how the A-Class is complemented by the larger B-Class. The GLB will also have provision for seven seats, courtesy of a longer-wheelbase version.

The GLB’s interior is also set to receive the latest in Mercedes-Benz cabin design, including the widescreen digital panel like the one installed in the A-Class, along with other interior design details such as that car’s circular air-conditioning vents.

Though yet to be confirmed, the upcoming GLB can also be expected to feature the powertrain line-up from the MFA2-based A-Class, with petrol and diesel engines in sizes ranging from 1.4 litres to 2.0 litres. An AMG entrant is likely as well, though it remains to be seen if it will come in AMG 35 or AMG 45 tune. The German marque’s next compact SUV is tipped to debut in 2019.
