Mercedes-Benz has revealed the Concept GLB ahead of its public debut at the Shanghai motor show later this week, giving us a clear indication of what to expect from the upcoming production model.
While dubbed a 'concept', the Concept GLB looks achingly close to production specification, though the show car has a few off-road bits that may not be fully indicative of the final production.
Great Wall: New ute still 12-18 months away for Australia
Great Wall’s tougher new ute is ready for a full reveal next week, but it won’t be touching down in Australia until more than a year after launch.
The new dual-cab, which will eventually take over from the Steed, will be offered in both ‘Urban’ and ‘Adventure’ guises when it launches. A pure-electric model with 500km of range will also be available, and Great Wall Australia has expressed interest in bringing it to our shores.

Ahead of the car's launch, the company has issued a single teaser shot of the new wagon, although it has yet to provide any details about the car.

The upcoming 2020 Karma Revero will gain a new range-extender petrol engine and improved acceleration times when it launches in Shanghai.
Having worked with BMW on range extender tech since 2015, the new petrol engine is expected to be a variation of the 1.5-litre three-pot used in the i8 and various Mini models. How much power it'll make isn't clear, but in BMW's hybrid hero it produces 170kW and 320Nm.
Mercedes-Benz has teased the interior of the Concept GLB, which will make its global debut in Shanghai later this month.
It's no secret the German marque has a new crossover in the works, and given its 'B' nomenclature, it's also no surprise this interior sketch looks like it was lifted straight out of the new B-Class.
