2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Media Test Drive Review

What you’re at here, is the second-generation Mercedes-Benz a car first introduced in year While maintaining the original famous credentials, this car sports a multitude of improvements and while retaining the oddball factor of a pseudo SUV/MPV/Hatchback profile. Let’s take a look shall we?

To sum up the Mercedes-Benz it is one important model for Mercedes-Benz tends to fall off most radar until they upon one in showrooms. There’s not a lot of historically, but the charm seems to be the packaging of the car. It is a model is rather difficult in defining its With a size like a hatchback with a crossover-like height and a two-box bodyshell the only similar competitors in the would only be the cheaper, Volkswagen Golf Plus and the Scenic. Other than there’s nothing quite it in the market.

Designed mainly to modern young families, the B-Class features the reknown Floor’ chassis that occupants in the event of a major, threatening frontal collision. How works, is that the entire of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class will beneath the heightened passenger providing very high for occupants in the passenger cell of the In a normal passenger car, safety standards would’ve in the need of a much longer crumple zone to cushion the The higher ride height allows a more commanding of the road ahead for the driver, a sense of reassurance and much visibility while driving. and rear occupants sit in a more position to free up legroom the confinements of a European B-segment car. But this is now absent the new B-Class. Perhaps it’s due to but nevertheless, given that a Mercedes-Benz, we reckoned the boffins at figured out on how to retain the same of safety without that sandwich thingy going

Hence, to preemptively ‘remind’ you that the basis of the design of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class stemmed safety, visibility and comfort, we now know what are the remaining of what we will cover in the paragraphs — lateral G and screeching actions are out ok? But handling the steering is around 2000 more accurate than the B-Class, and the biggest change, it comes to driving and handling, is the of the steering. Whereas the previous is feather light, the new B-Class so with a more sporty, confidence-inspiring weighted steering responds and reacts to inputs well. Body roll is of very noticeable, but not in a way that one feeling that the chassis take it; rather, it’s a of living with a series of rolls during spirited — which is definitely not the of the B-Class.

As the successor to the original W245 the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class sports a new 1.6-litre turbocharged engine that pumps an (but not a lot, really) 156 HP and 250 Nm a 7G-DCT seven-speed dual-clutch resulting in a performance of 8.6 seconds to the mark and a top speed of 220 km/h. The was built with ECO Start function as well for fuel gains, and one good thing is it is one of the smoothest immediate-ignition Start engines around. This to give a rather fantastic fuel consumption rating of 5.8 5.9 liters of fuel per 100km.

impressions is that the car doesn’t look larger than the B-Class just by looking at the car outside. Interior wise, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class is evidently spacious than the previous from front to back, and to side. (Don’t expect levels of legroom alright?) the exterior, Mercedes-Benz employs new fluid design concept shown on models like the CLS. Daytime running are nicely integrated into the forming two eyebrow-like lines flow nicely with the of the car, and especially the two distinctive profile swage lines and the roof that aids And speaking of aerodynamics, the 2012 B-Class shames the likes of vehicles with their profiles as the coefficient drag close in at an astonishing 0.26cd. not much surprise from the especially with this factor: a straight-down box profile of the and the boot opening dictates similar rear lamp and positioning as the previous B-Class. Of the party piece of the 2012 B-Class lies not in the new design of Mercedes-Benz, but the continuation of innovative assist functions first on the first-generation 2005 B-Class, with additional telematics and entertainment connectivities.

As the first model that Mercedes-Benz’s Collision Prevention the 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class a radar-based active collision system that does not intervene with audio and signals, it also activates and braking assistance in an attempt to collision from 30 km/h to 250 One excellent aspect of the 2012 B-Class’s brake assist to Volvo ‘s is that it still function actively if the driver applies braking unlike Volvo’s that the moment the driver applies without knowing how effective the braking maneuver is. Another aside from the brake is the automated parallel parking that actively takes of the steering after engagement, a suitable parking spot is

First of all, the 7G-DCT can be dynamically adjusted by the driver, and up modes of E for Eco, S for Sports and M for manual. The gear shifts are quick given that a dual clutch transmission, using the center stalk. noise is also massively at speeds beyond 160 km/h, physics begin taking Steering action is quick and body control of the chassis and the between sports and comfort was nice in that it dampens undulation rather nicely and Handling wise, it is in no way a Mercedes-Benz but the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class gives a good account of given its tall profile.

about the in-car telematics of the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class, there’s a CD changer, iPod, USB and Bluetooth all bundled-in and operable through a concept LCD color display galvanized piano black — rather good The 8-way powered seats with powered headrests and support for both front albeit with a narrow in adjustability. It moves back, but you go all the way, the seat base up and down, and it tilts, albeit not all the in a good enough, just manner. It’s also to note that the initial position is optimally set, it didn’t require as much as, say, the Peugeot 308 -platform cars (You Peugeot you) to find a good position that fits all (almost impossible in the RCZ for me).

There’s a nice line of lighting running through the in between the marble-like garnishing and the bottom portion of the dash, gives a surprising touch-sensation of it was a HUGE panel gap when doing the default-auto-journalist-finger-run-through of any new vehicles to for fit-and-finish. And in terms of build the 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class is built, yet with overall materials a notch lower that of the C-Class. Acceptable, but not running along the lines of or Nothing’maybe ‘Best of Costing’ is suitable as the B-Class is one of Mercedes’ ‘high-tech’ models within line-up considering the presence of collision prevention system and parking assist.

All in all, the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz is a very solid offering at RM 220,000 ; and if you don’t like the spaces of a traditional sedan, a taller driving position, techno-gadgetry, wants a boot can be expanded with the seats and (almost forgot) loves flip-out food trays for passengers, the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz is quite a solid option for one to the usual starting gridthat is the wanting to own a Mercedes-Benz.
