Mercedes-Benz B180 BlueEfficiency/B200

Call this part Although Mercedes-Benz has already the B-Class locally, it has only now the petrol-engined models. The latest is the first model to utilise the new on which the upcoming A-Class also be based, as well as first hot hatch, the A45 AMG .

This is the basis of a strong drive this Stuttgart-based manufacturer to an extended range of compact in the future. Several more apart from the A and B-Class will be built on this

What’s on offer?

Both models, the B180 and B200, use the 1,6-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged In the B180 it produces 90 kW/200 and in the B200 115 kW/250 N.m, but so, Mercedes-Benz claims identical consumption figures for both, at 5,9 km.

As with the turbodiesel model, control (note, not DISTRONIC which is a R10 000 option), a multifunction-steering media interface and an ECO stop/start come standard. In terms of safety, the B-Class comes seven airbags and Mercedes-Benz’s known Pre-Safe system. can add additional safety items such as rear side (R1 500) while the lane package (R7 500) is made up of spot assist and a lane assist.

On the road

First up for a was the entry-level B180, equipped the “optional” R10 000 7G-DCT automatic I emphasise “optional”, because 95 per cent of customers of the new B-Class this transmission, so it is highly that you will ever see a version on the road.

On the back roads of KwaZulu-Natal with animals and sugar this B-Class was well from exterior noise, and it better through corners you might expect for such a car. Although this car ran on R17 tyres (a no cost option) it did with the optional sports (R10 000). The latter, to two, offers a 15 mm reduction in height and sports suspension. As we in our road test of the B180 this really spoils the quality.

I took this issue up Reandren Thulkanam, Mercedes-Benz Africa’s product manager. He pointed out that most of customers pick the sports or even the night package includes the sports package, with a few more goodies). is actually the case with the as well. Apparently South are not worried about ride They put a greater emphasis on a car looks good.

With the quality issue dealt the focus fell on the new 90 kW/200 N.m It really is best suited to a relaxed kind of driver. we mainly drove on country there were times the engine lacked a little especially during overtaking but it was the 115 kW/250 N.m version that this inconvenience. From the go the engine actually felt it had a bit more to offer than the 25 kW and 50 N.m over the base model. the increase in output is due to the ECU and changes to the

The transmission shifted seamlessly and you use the small paddles attached to the of the steering wheel, the changes are in a way that you would expect this type of car – not lighting but more leisurely.


The is without a doubt one of the B-Class’s Tick the sports package box and the section of the dashboard that horizontally around the air vents be covered with an attractive honeycomb grille pattern. The alone Apple-esque infotainment makes this feel the most premium car in its segment. offered is an optional panoramic sunroof (R10 000). The roof lining, which standard with the sports lends a welcome contrast to the leather seats.

If you want a B-Class that the best ride take the 16- or wheels without the sports Yes, the 16-inch wheels not look the best, but you will a higher level of comfort. The petrol engine will be for heavy-traffic drives and in town, but as as you are driving on the open road, the version should be your The B-Class is now a luxurious and versatile and this is only the beginning of new compact car attack.
