The doors cover part of the side bar and open wider than conventional doors. This design prevents dirt from collecting in door openings. The car also features a protective cladding fitted to the underbody at the front and rear of the GLB.

The wheelbase is shorter than the wheelbase of the Mercedes Benz GLC but longer than that of the GLA. Mercedes say this has resulted in a more spacious cabin and third row seating. The second row seats are set in a 40:20:40 split folding-style offering easier access to the rear seats.
