Both EQB and GLB SUVs are based on the same MFA2 car platform. In India, the GLB will be featured in three variants; the entry-level GLB 200, the mid-spec GLB 220d, and the high-class GLB 220d 4Matic.

The GLB 200 petrol will arrive with a 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine, with a seven-speed automatic whereas the GLB 220d will get the 2.0-litre 190 bhp diesel power plant paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The GLB 200 is expected to be seen in a single Progressive Line exterior package. It will also get a faux skid plate, a dual slat grille, 18-inch alloy wheels, and chrome trim on the exterior. Whereas, the GLB 220d will arrive with an AMG Line package that will get 19-inch AMG five-spoke alloy wheels, a sharper-looking bumper, and a single-slat AMG-themed grille.

The Mercedes EQB, the first seven-seater EV, will be considered the third EV offered by Mercedes after the EQC SUV and the EQS sedan.

However, it will also get a few EQ-specific styling differences such as a unique headlight design, blanked-off front grille, and other tweaks.

EQB Interior

Although there are specific differences on the outside, the interior of the EQB is the same as the GLB except for the gold paint on its turbine-like vents. The EQB EV SUV will be sold in the entry-level EQB 300 guise in India. It is likely to make 228 hp and will feature a 66.5 kWh battery that will provide a claimed range of over 419 km (WLTP).
