Fun fact grey market calling 325 and 350k for the new one when this is the bargain pickup elsewhere in the world yes.
Ansa has a few that were released from the port last week but no price yet


The ones above posted sold from roro dealers between 325 and 365
There were will all the bells and whistles

Hoping to see what features ANSA brought and the price

Agreed shakes Subaru for that list.

So guys, there is a new premium crossover SUV in T&T. It's the 2020 Mercedes Benz GLB200 1.3T 7-seater priced at $455k.

What are your thoughts on this?

Seems like it may eat into the Rav4 and CRV sales

Honestly I am yet to truly classify where it will fit. It's about the size of a GLC but instead its fwd and that layout is easy to fit a 3rd row over the rear subframe. The 1.3t seems anemic at first but the output numbers are not bad. I'm thinking its closest competitor is the Tiguan 2.0t and a Forester EyeSight.

If you into brand and prestige over features like sunroof, premium sound and awd then Benz just brought a major upsetter.

Look more competitors joining the upset party, now available in the smaller 1.5t engines:

Putting 7 people in a more powerful. vehicle (say 2.0T XC90), you can surely feel the sluggishness a little bit. I wonder how it would hold up in this 1.3T. fwd GLB

That 2 series Gran Coupe rel ugly boy. Weys.

X2 not bad but I find it hard to classify that as a sub compact SUV

Looks more like a hatchback. Just like the GLA.

Yeah the X2,X1, GLA, QX30 etc are all lumped into the compact SUV segment currently (sales aren’t strong enough to warrant its own segment yet). So it’s compared against XC40, X3, GLC etc as well.

Also I’d stay away from them. Just bad value...

TBH that GLB dosent look half bad although not my cup of tea. Price is inviting however if Benz decides to give this the 1.3 T Plug in Hybrid setup like the CLA250e etc it will make it very very competitive. Same for those those more affordable BMWs for example X1 and X2 when the 1.5 T Pug in Hybrid goes on sale possibly 2 series GC. Its great to see these premium brands come closer and closer to most persons affordability. But that X7 tho :shock:

If youre referring to the K5/Optima that came late last year no it hasnt. Frankly thats an interesting story because that car is going through a name change globally and will be called K5 which has been the name in the Korean market for some time. Also bigger RHD markets like Australia and the UK wont be getting it due to poor sales. So with all that in mind I doubt we will see that vehicle be sold here locally which is sad I personally was waiting for it to land here.

Guys, some actual showroom photos of the 2020 Suzuki XL7 1.5 7 seat crossover has been released by some LSM team members. See below:

Looks like the Toyota Rush is in possible trouble.
