Brabus has done some tasteful modifications on the GLB this time, based on the GLB 250 variant and not the AMG GLB 35, interestingly. However, the GLB 250 featured here is equipped with AMG Line package ex-factory.
The visual upgrades by Brabus look mostly tasteful except for the auxiliary roof lights which kinda feels unnecessary. The aerodynamic elements include a two-part front spoiler and a rear spoiler, all made from high-quality Polyurethane (PUR). The rear end features a set of four black chromed Brabus exhaust tips with a diameter of 90 mm.
The Brabus sport springs for the 4Matic variants have been specifically tuned for use with low-profile tires; the ride-height is lowered by about 30 mm. For that 0.5% of owners who (might) take their GLB off-road, Brabus will offer springs that raise the ride height by about 35 mm. Rounding off the exterior looks are 20-inch Brabus Monoblock Z wheels that can be shod with Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama high-performance tires up to size 255/40 R20 on the rear axle.
The interior too features some tasteful Brabus touches including anodized aluminum scuff plates with Brabus logo — backlit in 64 colors in sync with the ambient lighting of the car, and matte anodized Brabus aluminum pedals.
Moving on to the business end of the story, the PowerXtra B25 performance kit for the GLB 250 extracts an additional 34 kW (46 hp) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft) of torque, bringing the total figures to 199 kW (270 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque.
A 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is now claimed to take just 6.6 seconds (-0.3 seconds) while the top speed is up by 4 km/h (2.5 mph) to 240 km/h (149 mph).
