The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 has been spotted once again, this time in the snow at an unspecified testing ground. The automaker has yet to officially introduce the GLB, but it’s clear the SUV will get the AMG touch, in both GLB 35 and GLB 45 guises.

The GLB will ride on the second-generation Modular Front Architecture (MFA2, shared with the new A-Class, B-Class, CLA and GLA) and will likely utilise the same turbo engines as the B-Class. These include a Renault-sourced 1.3 litre petrol engine and Mercedes’ own 2.0 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel mills, all with four cylinders and available with seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions.

As for the GLB 35, it should use the same M260 2.0 litre four banger as the A 35, making in excess of 300 hp and 400 Nm of torque. However, the engine will likely skip on the EQ Boost mild hybrid tech that’s found on the M264 unit – that engine produces 299 hp and 400 Nm of torque in the E 350 Coupe and Cabriolet.

Power will be sent to all four wheels (4Matic) via a fast-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and additional mechanical bits include stiffer suspension, beefier brakes and AMG-specific exterior styling.

As for the cabin, it’s more than certain that the GLB will get the MBUX system, which means it will get a dual-widescreen setup like most modern Mercs. Anyone already eyeing the AMG GLB 35?
