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 that doesn’t change the that the sharp and stubby of the B-class still looks from the rest of the body so when viewed from the side profile. If you are keen-eyed, you’ll also notice the diesel variant of the B also on slightly smaller, 16-inch wheels. But if such design are too small for anyone to differentiate car from its petrol counterpart, the will make things It wears the ‘CDI’ badge, indicates that there is an under the hood. The ‘B180’ is misleading though as the cubic of the engine is not even in the same pin as what the badging may suggest. on that, later.

The overall on the B-class diesel looks sober with the ‘Style’ though; and takes away little sporty styling the petrol had to offer.


As I mentioned at the beginning of this the ‘B180’ badge on the boot is You would expect a 1.8-litre under the hood, but what you get is a 2.2-litre oiler that out a 109 PS of power and a healthy 250 Nm of torque. In the market, Mercedes Benz the B-class with a different set of altogether, which are Euro 5 However, for India, the carmaker to use this 2.2-litre motor it not only is cheaper to integrate it is also used in the E-, C- and A-class but because this engine is 4 compliant and therefore works with the Indian fuel

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 B-diesel can attain a restricted top of 190 km/h, but with the front drive architecture, this car does feel nervous at speeds — despite the broad tyres. The safety keeps the car in check though. of which, the safety features untouched — so you get quite a few assisted brakes with ABS and acceleration skid prevention and of ESP.

The B-diesel’s 16-inch are shod with 205-55 tyres, which are higher in than the ones on the B-petrol. higher profile results in better ride quality as to the latter. The tyres also very good grip bends but the relatively high from the soft suspension reminds you that this an enthusiast’s car. Nevertheless, the CDI does its job of tackling the Indian and fuel conditions very and leaves little room for any of complaints.


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
