Mercedes B-Class diesel test drive


It may be a but it’s quite a large and one, and this B 180 CDI weighs in at 1.5 tonnes (to be fair, that’s as as the A-class). Although the power is low, the torque from the is ample and available from the go. You hardly feel any turbo lag larger displacement helps and the car pulls away smoothly in Mercedes fashion. It’s got a good mid-range, and the top end is not too bad either – but it get a bit noisy towards the end. A lot of must be given to the seven-speed automatic gearbox, which is at picking the best ratio for any situation. It can even be set to Sport or for quicker shifts and better response.

The big news is the ride, which is a improvement on the petrol car. is down to the smaller, 16-inch and higher, 55-profile tyres are standard on the diesel (the has 225/45 R17s). The suspension is somewhat stiffly set up, though, and you feel this most on bumps.

While the B 180 petrol is available in Sport trim, the diesel is only in Style trim, is also the reason the latter likely cost less the former. What you sacrifice in the down is the dual sunroof and the 17-inch wheels. Otherwise, it has all the features, with a fully driver’s seat, leather seven airbags, a COMAND with a variety of media and a whole lot of safety tech.

Two questions arise with car. One, is the diesel better than the petrol, and now that the stylish and more A-class is also on sale, you be considering the B-class at all? The to both is yes. The B-class is a spacious and very practical hatchback, and to that end, the engine is a much better fit for it. It for a smoother, more relaxed and there’s also the benefit of fuel economy. We also it to be the cheaper variant, and it rides too.

Although the B-class shares a engines and a lot of trim with the the two cars have very characters. The big B may lose some points to its cheaper sibling, but on practicality and usability, it absolutely it. If the lowest possible sticker is your primary criterion, the A-class is a better choice. But if you a useful boot, proper in the rear seats, and a comfortable the B-class – particularly the CDI – is well the extra spend.
