Boil beans and hold them for soup, and boil them for juice.The calyx burns under the cauldron, and the beans weep in the cauldron.Originally born from the same root, why is it too urgent to fry each other?Cao Zhi's "Seven-step Poem" is basically familiar to everyone, and everyone knows the meaning described in the poem, so I won't say more here.In fact, in the fierce market competition, there are also many such examples. Although they are all sibling models, they will also face the competition.

Only in terms of market performance, some sibling models are flying together, such as Corolla and Ralink, XR-V and Binzhi.However, there are also some sibling models whose market performance is tepid, such as the Lingshang and the Asian Lion.Of course, there is another phenomenon: shaving one's head and picking one's head sink.Mercedes-Benz GLA and Mercedes-Benz GLB are one of the representatives. The price range of Mercedes-Benz GLA is 283,900-344,800 yuan; the price range of Mercedes-Benz GLB is 295,900-364,800 yuan.

Although Mercedes-Benz GLA and Mercedes-Benz GLB are not twin models of "one car and two sales", their market positioning is the same, and they are both compact SUVs, a large part of the price range overlaps, and the main consumer groups are similar but also subdivided. After all, there are still differences between Mercedes-Benz GLA and Mercedes-Benz GLB in some aspects.For example, the Mercedes-Benz GLA has a five-seat layout, and the GLB has a five- and seven-seat layout.

In terms of power, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Mercedes-Benz GLB are also the same, equipped with 1.3T and 2.0T two sets of power combinations to choose from. Among them, the 1.3T engine can reach the maximum163 horsepower and 250Nm torque; 2.0T engine can reach a maximum of 190 horsepower and 300Nm torque.It is matched with 7DCT and 8DCT gearboxes.

In terms of body size, the Mercedes-Benz GLA has a length, width and height of 4427*1834*1610mm and a wheelbase of 2729mm. There are also some models with a length of 4438mm and a height of 1615mm.; Mercedes-Benz GLA has a length, width and height of 4638*1834*1687mm, a wheelbase of 2829mm, and a height of 1700mm for some models.Judging from the size of the "measurements" of the body, the interior space of the Mercedes-Benz GLB is much looser than that of the GLA.

The configuration is differentiated according to the price, but the Mercedes-Benz GLA is more sincere. Taking the GLA 220 of 315,800 yuan as an example, it is more than 314,800 yuan.Yuan's GLB 200 has a lot of fashion and kindness. First of all, the power is different. GLA is equipped with a 2.0T power combination, and GLB is equipped with a 1.3T power combination; GLA has lane departure warning, lane keeping assist system and lane centering, etc., while GLBThere is no such configuration.

But the Mercedes-Benz GLB has an advantage over the Mercedes-Benz GLA in terms of interior space, which is also an indisputable fact. On the whole, each has its own advantages.For domestic consumers with a large space, even if the Mercedes-Benz GLA has advantages in certain aspects such as configuration, it is still not more attractive to consumers than the Mercedes-Benz GLB's large space and other advantages, which can also be seen from the market performance.

According to public sales, in the first eight months of this year, the cumulative sales volume of Mercedes-Benz GLA was 18,792 units, and the sales volume in August was 2,543 units; the cumulative sales volume of Mercedes-Benz GLB was 36,405 units.Taiwan, sales in August were 5,844 units.There is still a big gap between the two in terms of cumulative sales. The Mercedes-Benz GLB is much more popular in the market than the Mercedes-Benz GLA.

One ​​sentence comment: There are no brothers in the car market, and the fierce market competition is like this. Whether it is the same brother model or other competing products, it is all about seizing market share.It will not be soft-hearted. Therefore, in the current situation of Mercedes-Benz GLA, in addition to being impacted by competitors of other brands, Mercedes-Benz GLB is also a "stumbling block" to suppress the rise of GLA, what do you think?
