Car Review: Mercedes-Benz B-Class CDI

With the Style trim, the diesel looks relatively than its petrol-powered sibling.

. Rs 22,60,000

Good . Comes at a price, hence makes more sense than the variant. Decent to drive and with a very fuel diesel engine.

Bad . It isn’t as rich as B-Class petrol. the engine’s a bit noisy.

Verdict . is what the B-Class should been, right from the Although it isn’t as feature as the B-petrol, the diesel B-Class as expensive either to run or buy. If looking for a B-Class to fulfill touring desires, this is the car to

Design Review

The B-class, was the first of the ‘New Generation Cars’ from Mercedes was launched in India in 2012 much fanfare and optimism. The campaigns have glorified the as a Sports Tourer; but the B180 — which is a petrol car — hasn’t quite up to the expectations of being mile-munching car. Blame it to ever-increasing of petrol or the lack of enough for the buck. The B-class diesel could bring about the changes. Let’s find out if it

In terms of the design, the B-class looks a tad different than its sibling. Draped in the ‘Style’ the B-diesel gets a three-slat on the face with a large star at the centre. The B180 (petrol) gets a two-slat instead. The diesel variant loses out on the panoramic roof and the all-black, all-glass unit is with sculpted metal has a wide indentation running the length of the roof. It breaks the of the large and prominent roofline.

But doesn’t change the fact the sharp and stubby nose of the still looks disconnected the rest of the body more so viewed from the car’s profile. If you are keen-eyed, then also notice that the variant of the B also rides on smaller, 16-inch alloy But if such design changes are too for anyone to differentiate this car its petrol counterpart, the boot-lid make things clear. It the ‘CDI’ badge, which that there is an oil-burner the hood. The ‘B180’ badge is though as the cubic capacity of the is not even in the same pin code as the badging may suggest. More on later.

The overall design on the B-class looks very sober the ‘Style’ trim though; and away whatever little styling the B-class petrol had to

Perfomance Review

As I mentioned at the of this review, the ‘B180’ on the boot is misleading. You would a 1.8-litre engine under the but what you get instead is a 2.2-litre that puts out a 109 PS of power and a 250 Nm of torque. In the global market, Benz sells the B-class a different set of engines altogether, are Euro 5 compliant. However, for the carmaker chose to use this motor because it not only is to integrate since it is also in the E-, C- and A-class but also because engine is Euro 4 compliant and works better with the fuel quality.

When you crank the engine you the trademark, gravely note of a motor. It settles into a low of less than 800 revs per and the moment you engage the Drive the engine note becomes With a diesel engine, you expect some sort of a or a sudden surge of torque. But a variable geometry turbine and the 2149cc displacement, the B-class’ engine doesn’t impart any behavior. Instead, it pulls off and builds up the power and torque making you feel the lack of

Thanks to the seven-speed dual transmission, the gearshifts feel and the engine doesn’t feel in either of the driving cycles or highway. Speaking of driving our test car returned us a fuel of 14-15 kmpl in the urban and 17-18 kmpl on the highway. is very close to Merc’s of 18.9 kmpl. With a tank capacity of 50 litres, you a driving range of close to a kilometres then, should you to sport touring seriously.

The can attain a restricted top whack of 190 but with the front wheel architecture, this compact car feel nervous at high — despite the relatively tyres. The safety tech the car in check though. Speaking of the safety features remain — so you get quite a few airbags, brakes with ABS and EBD, skid prevention and of course,

The B-diesel’s 16-inch wheels are with 205-55 section which are higher in profile the ones on the B-petrol. Their profile results in slightly ride quality as compared to the The tyres also provide good grip through but the relatively high body-roll the soft suspension setup you that this isn’t an car. Nevertheless, the B180 CDI its job of tackling the Indian road and conditions very well and little room for any sort of


The B-class is certainly not the car from Mercedes Benz. But if you that the A-class looks too or is cramped (or both), then the B-class could appeal to you. And with a diesel under the hood and better quality to boast of, it seems the B-class can finally live up to its of being a potent sports
