BRABUS REFINES THE NEW MERCEDES GLB-CLASS
28.07.2020 – The new Mercedes GLB-Class – The BRABUS range of bodywork components for the new Mercedes GLB-Class is characterized by sporty elegance. All components are manufactured in OEM quality from PUR. Elegantly styled aerodynamic-enhancement components, alloy wheels with 18, 19 or 20-inch diameter, sporty-comfortable suspension solutions that raise or lower the SUV, powerful engine tuning and exclusive accessories for the interior.
The two-part front spoiler for the vehicles equipped ex-factory with the AMG Line package is designed to attach to the lower section of the fascia at the left and right. In addition, BRABUS front fascia inserts for the side air intakes can add even more striking highlights to the face of the SUV. The Power Beams roof rack with two auxiliary headlights provides added safety for driving at night. Two powerful LED modules improve the illumination of the roadway in front of the vehicle when the driver turns on the high beams or uses the headlight flasher.
The powerful overall look will be completed by the rear view of the car – the rear spoiler, which attaches to the hatch, can give all variants of the new GLB-Class a more exciting rear appearance. In addition, a set of four black chromed exhaust tips with a diameter of 90 millimeters (3.5 in) is available as a further design element specifically for the vehicles with AMG Line package.
Alloy wheels in OEM quality make the new GLB-Class even more fascinating and give the car even more agile handling to boot. To this end, the suspension engineers and test drivers developed tailor-made tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 18, 19 and 20 inches.
The combination of modern production methods and the design of these ten-spoke wheels painted in black and sporting polished surfaces, offer a perfect combination of low weight and maximum strength.
Our technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires up to size 255/40 R 20 on the rear axle.
We developed the sport springs for the 4MATIC variants of the Mercedes GLB-Class specifically for use with sporty low-profile tires. The optimal blend of sportier handling and great ride quality was achieved in extensive road tests. The ride-height lowering by about 30 millimeters (1.2 in) also benefits the looks of the car.
Furthermore, we offer an alternative for GLB owners who also like to drive their vehicle off-road; springs for the all-wheel-drive versions that raise the ride height of the SUV by about 35 millimeters (1.4 in) compared to the production level.
The first performance upgrade for the new model series is the PowerXtra B25 performance kit for the GLB 250. The kit boosts peak output of the four-cylinder turbo engine of the GLB 250 by 34 kW / 46 hp (46 bhp) and bumps peak torque by 80 Nm (59 lb-ft), courtesy of the plug-and-play PowerXtra module. It introduces newly programmed mapping for injection and ignition to the engine electronics and recalibrates the boost pressure control.
With an impressive maximum performance of 199 kW / 270 hp (267 bhp), up from standard 165 kW / 224 hp (221 bhp), and a peak torque increased from 350 to 430 Nm (258 to 317 lb-ft) optimize the driving dynamics and the driving fun. Our tuned Mercedes GLB-Class is one of the sportiest of its kind in its segment.
The SUV accelerates from a standing start in just 6,6 seconds to 100 km/h (62 mph). It’s top speed is 240 km/h (149 mph). The PowerXtra B25 performance upgrade is available for all GLB 250 models with front-wheel or 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
The GLB-Class sets exclusive highlights: Of course, we also offer a host of refinement options for the interior appointments of the new GLB-Class. The product range includes anodized aluminum scuff plates with BRABUS logo, backlit in 64 colors in sync with the ambient lighting of the car, and matte anodized aluminum pedals. The footwells of all three rows can be upgraded with high-quality floor mats with BRABUS logo. The product lineup also includes a matching trunk mat.
