Now, here’s a huge “No model change in the history of has ever seen so many new introduced in one fell swoop.” spake Professor Dr. Thomas a member of the management responsible for research and car development at Mercedes-Benz. the second generation B-Class hatchback does not look different from its 2006

How little appearances tell underneath its sleeker, lower, body lies an almost new car and one that represents a big advance. But the single most important of the W246 B-Class is the fact it showcases the near future for in areas such as interior packaging, safety and fuel-efficiency. the first. For some time now I felt almost guilty for my of Mercedes-Benz interior design, the dashboards. Some of the arrangements cluttered and the central area of the packs too much information for my The B-Class has addressed this. Not are the gauges themselves more but important information is displayed in a space between the speedometer and the

In a sense, this new B-Class is the of the seriously compact front-wheel Mercedes that started in with the A-Class. Later, it be joined with the third A-Class which is a superb car and should bring hordes customers who are new to the brand into dealerships. The B-Class has arrived at a opportune time because Australia sold the last of its old stock some months

The appearance remains boxy but in a streamlined fashion – literally, the car achieving a phenomenally low coefficient of of just 0.26, unheard of for a with a wagon rear-end. The flows seamlessly into steeply raked A-pillars and in the current Mercedes-Benz styling are evident.

A wide grille and very new headlights make a bold of brand identity. The car is about 50 mm and with the wider front and tracks it has a more ‘planted’ Passengers sit 71 mm closer to the earth.
