Prices rise to £35,700 for AMG Line trim, which can be specced with either the 1.3-litre turbo petrol or a 2.0-litre diesel engine available with front or four-wheel-drive. Additional kit over Sport includes 19in alloy wheels, AMG-inspired exterior styling, tinted rear windows, a sports steering wheel and sports seats.
The four-cylinder diesel unit makes 148bhp and 236lb ft in the GLB 200d and 187bhp and 295lb ft in the GLB 220d 4Matic. It emits between 137 and 169g/km of CO2 and achieves fuel economy of between 51.3 and 57.6mpg.
