Power & performance of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB trims

If you’re searching primarily for power and performance, then you’ll probably end up choosing the AMG® trim. Not only does this model have a more powerful engine, but it gives the GLB a quicker acceleration time. However, if you’re more interested in the GLB for its cargo space or reasonable price, then you may end up choosing one of the two other trims in the GLB. Power-wise, you’ll find the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 has 221 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is the same power of the 250 4MATIC®*, and they both can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 6.9 seconds.

However, the AMG® trim does indeed bring more power to the table, so it shouldn’t be surprising to find it has 302 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, enabling it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 5.1 seconds.
