2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB: Review

The GLB we drove came equipped with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with variable torque distribution, which allows the driver to use Dynamic Select to choose different driving characteristics. In standard Eco/Comfort mode, torque gets split 80/20 between the front and rear axles, and the Sport mode split is 70/30. In Off-Road mode the all-wheel-drive clutch works as a center differential lock for a 50/50 torque split. We discovered the system works well while cruising soft, shifting sands on designated driving beaches of the Washington Coast.
