Both the F-Pace and GLB have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The F-Pace has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The GLB’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The F-Pace has a standard Whiplash Reduction System, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Reduction System moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The GLB doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the GLB.

To help make backing safer, the F-Pace (except Base)’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The GLB doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the F-Pace and the GLB have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available blind spot warning systems and around view monitors.

The battery on the F-Pace is in the trunk, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures that can degrade battery life. By keeping the F-Pace’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The GLB’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

The F-Pace 25t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 26 more horsepower (247 vs. 221) and 11 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 258) than the GLB’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. The F-Pace 30t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 75 more horsepower (296 vs. 221) and 37 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 258) than the GLB’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 159 more horsepower (380 vs. 221) and 74 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 258) than the GLB’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder.

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The GLB doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The F-Pace has 5.8 gallons more fuel capacity than the GLB (21.7 vs. 15.9 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

For better stopping power the F-Pace SVR’s brake rotors are larger than those on the GLB:

F-Pace SVR

Front Rotors

15.6 inches

13 inches

Rear Rotors

15.6 inches

12.6 inches

The F-Pace’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the GLB are solid, not vented.

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the GLB (255/60R18 vs. 235/55R18). The F-Pace SVR’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the GLB (F:265/45R21 & R:295/40R21 vs. 235/55R18).

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the GLB’s optional 50 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace SVR has standard 21-inch wheels. The GLB’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The F-Pace offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the GLB; it requires you to depend on its run-flat tires, which limits mileage and speed before they are repaired. If a run-flat is damaged beyond repair by a road hazard your vehicle will have to be towed. Some tire options on the GLB don’t have a run-flat feature, either.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 1.7 inches longer than on the GLB (113.1 inches vs. 111.4 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the F-Pace is 1.4 inches wider in the front and 2.2 inches wider in the rear than the track on the GLB.

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the GLB with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 5.1 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the GLB with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 62 cubic feet).

The F-Pace’s cargo area is larger than the GLB’s in almost every dimension:

40.6”/71.9”

32.5”/71”

Max Width

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the F-Pace’s (except Base/Premium) optional rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The GLB doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

The engine in the F-Pace is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the GLB. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the F-Pace to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The GLB doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the F-Pace has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the GLB only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

Both the F-Pace and the GLB offer optional heated front seats. The F-Pace also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated second row seats aren’t available in the GLB.
