The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 Is More Of A Sports Wagon Than A Crossover

The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 Is More Of A Sports Wagon Than A Crossover

This week, as the launch of Perodua's new small crossover - the Ativa - nears, and as the Honda reveals an all-new HR-V, we weigh in on the hotly contested crossover market in Malaysia. We also discuss the fashionably luxurious 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the muscular Lexus IS500, Hyundai's new sub-brand and car, the IONIQ 5. 

 

For our car review, Daniel tells us about the fun he had while test-driving the box-shaped Mercedes-AMG GLB 35. It may look like 'just another AMG', but the AMG-tuned engine and parts offers hot-hatch-like thrills in a hugely practical bodystyle, creating an experience that's (quite honestly) incomparable. It's a far left-choice in the SUV/crossover segments, but it shows that you don't actually have to compromise fun when you've got a family and their furniture to haul.
