Mercedes Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Good: interior, great auto

Bad: Not especially versatile, far cheap

Price: From

A great many of today’s are based on platforms, or convenient of structural components used to multiple models. In concept, giant Lego set for automotive

The platform approach allows to be spread across different in ways that aren’t to customers. Few buyers would guessed that the striking Audi TT, for example, shared a with the contemporary Volkswagen The result was a sports car that drive nearly as keenly as its suggested. But if that hidden hadn’t been the case, might never have able to afford to develop the TT at

Today, the most sophisticated such as MQB, the platform the current seventh generation (as well as various Seat, and Audi models), can cope multiple adjustments in length, wheelbase and track, making it than ever to spot the relationships between one car and another.

evidently, hasn’t used one of state-of-the-art platforms to build its Because it’s pretty it shares rather a lot with two front-wheel drive Mercedes, in the of the latest A-Class hatchback and CLA coupé.

Park the trio to each other and the similarities are as as frizzy red hair. The most family trait – the visible – is no doubt deliberate. But the more aspects of kinship probably quite so welcome, such as the relationship between the wheels and the apertures.

If you were going to build a compact people carrier, you wouldn’t start with the basic layout as a sports and a svelte coupé.

And speaking I also wouldn’t fit lowered to a multi-purpose vehicle. Or choose alloys shod with run-flat tyres for a car in which I reasonably fetch the shopping, that I prefer my eggs to it home unscrambled. But these come fitted to the B-Class taken for a spin, a B 220 CDI BlueEfficiency

If I were going to go tearing in a manner that matched the of this car, I’d probably the A-Class. It looks the part, a sports hatch and all, and importantly, it’s at least cheaper than the B-Class.

With a base price of this particular B-Class firmly at the whopping end of smallish carriers, and that’s before the bulk of the options list into view. Even practicality costs extra – for under-seat boxes, a sunglasses folding tables for rear and a brace of seat-back storage another £515 for a sliding seat with through-loading

Add leather electric sports electronic safety gizmos, assistance, a huge sunroof, a upgrade and online multimedia and our modestly sized MPV costs as tested. An entire throatful of in other words.

Still, this pricey B come with a large star and isn’t bad to drive. The position is excellent, all-round is top-notch, and the seven-speed automatic is both smart and effortless. It has economy and normal shift too.

The suspension in Sport may be 15mm lower than but it’s still described as a setup in the manual, meaning it has a little bit of mellow forgiveness in it say, the A-Class AMG Sport to have only girders, hobnails and anvils. The lowered B still pummel its way over roads but it won’t physically your vision.

The interior lovely – better resolved the A-Class, especially around the screen – despite sharing details like the jet-nozzle It generally feels good to the too, though you can still iffy pieces of plastic by your knees or ankles.

With a CO2 score of 120g/km and cycle economy of 61.4mpg, my test vehicle would be the greener motorist’s first even among the B-Class It can race to 62mph in 8.3 seconds, which is pretty quick for a carrier.

For the best fuel opt for the B 180 CDI with manual gears, to a 108g/km CO2 result. Though if it my money I’d probably be more by the 112g/km, 67.3mpg and 7-speed of the B 200 CDI SE.

Actually, if it were my money I wouldn’t buy a B-Class. If you want to four adults in comfort at speed, with a large for their stuff, this is a car. Bank robbers note. For everyone else who a people carrier – to transport and dogs and buggies and wet-wipes and – it’s hard to imagine how might fit the bill.
