One of the most popular car brands in the Middle East, Mercedes-Benz, has recently introduced a new model – the Mercedes GLB – to the UAE market with Gargash Enterprises.

Described as “the perfect partner, whatever comes”, the EW team recently put the new luxury SUV to the test to see if this was the case.


While the car is described as “the most versatile compact SUV” Mercedes-Benz has ever built, you’re definitely not short of space in this SUV. In fact, it feels incredibly spacious with more than enough room making it a comfortable and smooth ride for both the driver and all passengers. The car also comes in both five-seater and seven-seater options, making it ideal for large or growing families.


Having spent a week zipping around Dubai in the Mercedes-Benz GLB, it’s a car you can feel totally comfortable and safe in. Not only does it offer an unbelievably smooth ride, but the advanced technology ensures the car can see up to 500 metres ahead thanks to its camera and radar systems. This also ensures the driver is aware of their surroundings at all times.

Sometimes when it comes to large SUVs, style can be compromised. But with the GLB, you don’t lose out on this and it offers a truly elegant and stylish ride.


The GLB also includes the state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) which features the touch-display screen at the front of the car, steering wheel with touch control buttons, Bluetooth connection and more. You can also activate the voice control element which is prompted by saying “Hey Mercedes”.


A key win for the new GLB is how versatile it can be, which is particularly important in this region. Not only does the GLB offer both five-seater and seven-seater options – the first compact vehicle from Mercedes-Benz to offer this. It also can be adapted for off-road driving with the Off-Road Engineering Package which, according to the experts, “adapts the power delivery of the engine, the characteristics of 4MATIC and ABS intervention control for off-road driving in easy terrain”.

The verdict: A stylish and comfortable ride, ideal for an investment for growing families.
