Thanks to a series of improvements, the four-cylinder engines now up to seven percent less than previously, and distinguish with remarkably low exhaust that undercut the current EU by as much as 90 percent. Mercedes-Benz has a new ECO start/stop function for the high-volume B 150 and B 170 models. This switches off the when stopped at traffic for example, producing a fuel of up to nine percent in practical Another new feature of the B-Class is park assist, a feature helps drivers both to find a suitable parking and then manoeuvre into it.

its market premiere in autumn the B-Class has evolved into the for a new species of car which harmonises the of various vehicle concepts: the model boasts the dynamic of a sporty saloon, the exterior of a compact car, the spaciousness of an the versatility of a mini MPV and the trademark of a Mercedes-Benz.

The sales figures for the to date provide clear that the Mercedes-Benz product hit the mark with a concept caters to the motoring needs of sophisticated society: since over 350,000 motorists the world have been won by the Sports Tourer. Over B-Class have been in the UK since it launched in autumn

With four engines and two levels to choose from a B-Class has never been The two trim levels are the SE and the Sport. The SE has a panoramic glass sunroof as while the Sport model gets the previously optional Package as standard and includes alloy wheels, Sports an aluminium look gearshift, stainless steel sports with black rubber fabric/ARTICO upholstery and other features.

The restyled front end injects the with more poise and than before. This is down to the radiator grille its three chromed cross painted in matt silver and the star integrated into its However, the more imposing of the B-Class also stems the new-look bumper whose emphasises the large air intake at the as well as the modified bonnet. new design idiom makes the look broad and, as a especially powerful, symbolising the attributes of the B-Class even clearly than before. The at the sides seems more and elegant than before, the exterior mirror housings, handles and skirt panels are now to match the body colour on all variants.

A direct link is created by the tail assemblies, whose upper merge seamlessly with the line along the vehicle’s The tail lights sport a new look and draw the gaze to the tailgate, which now comes en ergonomically enhanced chrome strip. The rear bumper is protected by a polished stainless scratch protector.

Interior: appointments with new upholsteries and

High-class appeal, attention to and a sense of ample spaciousness qualities have always intrinsic to the B-Class. The winning of forms, colours and materials up with the interior’s roominess, the feel of all its surface materials and the window areas to produce a inviting ambience. This is by the high seating position incidentally, improves the driver’s view, too while the relatively waistline fosters a sense of without making the occupants confined.

The Mercedes design has further upgraded the interior a new upholstery fabric, plus a new pattern for the seat cushions. If the Sport is ordered customers get the package as standard. The side bolsters are trimmed in ARTICO leather and the centre panels in The interior door linings feature a new fabric trim.

The centre console continues to be by trim strips on both but they are now made from brushed aluminium in a smoke finish. The same, integrated is found again in the vicinity of the and in the door panelling, giving the an added sense of refinement.

engines: fuel consumption by seven percent

The B-Class to be available with a choice of six two direct-injection diesel units hp and 140 hp) delivering up to 300 Nm of torque, as well as two engines with a peak output of up to 116 hp and a maximum torque of 155 Nm. The power units have a series of detailed improvements in to further reduce fuel

For the diesel models, this that the combined NEDC consumption of the B 180 CDI and B 200 CDI has improved by as much as percent depending on tyre 52.354.3 mpg and 52.3-50.4 mpg respectively. The two models, which are particularly thanks to a balancer shaft, therefore be an even less sight at the filling station now on; the B 180 CDI can clock up over 640 miles on a tank of fuel (54 litres).

models: new fuel-saving ECO start/stop

Depending on the model and engine the two petrol variants of the B‑Class fuel consumption figures of 41.5 and 42.8 mpg in the NEDC cycle. From spring motoring is set to become even economical with the arrival of the B 150 and B 170 models featuring the ECO start/stop . This newly developed automatically switches the engine off the driver shifts to neutral at low whilst depressing the brake If the criteria for stopping the engine are a special display appears in the cluster to inform the driver. ECO start/stop the B150 will 45.6 mpg while the B170 return 44.1 mpg.

The the clutch is pressed or the brake released, the engine springs to life almost noiselessly and in a of a second. This ability to the engine swiftly yet smoothly the ECO start/stop function a key edge other systems of this To achieve this, Mercedes-Benz a starter-generator which is connected to the via the belt drive. This the engine to start much and far more quietly than the conventional starter. During the the starter-generator feeds the electrical on board the B-Class with An intelligent control system that the battery is only when needed, and that predominantly takes place the engine is on the overrun to convert energy into electrical by recuperation.

In practical operation, substantial savings of up to nine percent can be with the ECO start/stop function, when driving in city with frequent stops at lights or in tailbacks.

Environmental for B-Class

The B-Class is the fifth model to be awarded the Environmental by Germany’s TÜV Technical Authority. Mercedes-Benz is the only brand in the world to have granted this certificate, is based on the stringent international ISO 14062 Design For Environment . It is a of the Stuttgart-based brand’s commitment to all of environmental protection. In contrast to the standardised measurement of exhaust and fuel consumption on the roller Mercedes engineers analyse the compatibility of vehicles over entire lifecycle starting their manufacture, continuing their many years of use and with their end-of-life

In all, over 40,000 processes come under whose analysis; computation and ultimately produce a comprehensive eco This in turn forms the for the environmental certificate of the B-Class.

The driven concept of the B-Class is evident from its use of high-quality plastics and components made natural materials . including cotton, coconut fibre, veneer and fibres from the banana.

Mercedes-Benz has put together a containing detailed information the environmental certificate awarded to the and published it on the internet at .

protection: extensive safety enhanced yet further

When it to safety, the B-Class sets an for all other models of these to follow: in the European NCAP programme, the Sports Tourer was the highest rating of five

The comprehensive safety specification, two-stage front airbags, tensioners for the front and outer seats, belt force plus active head in the front, ISOFIX child attachment points and head/thorax has now been complemented by the addition of emergency lighting in the passenger Following an accident of a predetermined the lighting comes on automatically to the occupants to get their bearings easily in the dark and expedite the of the rescue services.

Active flashing brake lights as a to other motorists

Accident is the overriding priority of the Mercedes concept a concept that is towards motoring reality. To them bring critical under control safely and ease, drivers of the B-Class can on highly effective, standard-fit in the form of systems such as Brake Assist and ESP ®. engineers have however that little bit further by to devise a way of offering other added safety too. The is a simple but highly effective of avoiding rear-end collisions: brake lights . This technology is included as standard on the model year B-Class.

testing, Mercedes engineers able to ascertain that the reaction time of motorists is by an average of 0.2 seconds if they see a red warning signal instead of brake lights in an emergency situation. This shortens the distance by around 4.40 if they are travelling at a speed of 50 and by a whole 5.50 metres or so braking from 60 mph. lights flashing at a high therefore prove to be an effective of alerting drivers behind to the of a rear-end collision.

The flashing lights are triggered automatically if the initiates emergency braking travelling at a speed of 30 mph or more. And if the is braked to a stop from a of over 45 mph, the hazard lights will come on

Assistance systems: automatic with ultrasound and electric

The Electronic Stability Program has expanded to include a new, function: the automatic hill-start . This prevents the B-Class rolling backwards as the driver from the brake to the accelerator when starting off uphill. In situations, the ESP ® briefly the brake pressure to make away easy.

Reverse will pose less of a for motorists in future. The new active assist (optional) searches for an spot at the side of the road as the drives by, than takes of all the steering manoeuvres as the driver into it. How it works: at speeds 25 mph, ultrasonic sensors at the of the car scan the zones to the immediate and right of the B-Class, and measure the and depth of any potential parking Once a suitable spot has found, the system flashes up a in the display to inform the driver. the driver engages reverse, the display and presses the accelerator, the parking assist takes the steering and automatically manoeuvres the into the space. All the driver has to do is the accelerator and brake; the PARKTRONIC ultrasonic sensors provide assistance by indicating how much there is in front of and behind the

To be able to use the automatic parking the parking spot only has to be metres longer than the an indication of the technology’s tremendous

The newly developed assistance comprises a total of 10 ultrasonic in the front and rear bumper, as as an electronic control unit processes the sensor signals and the best path to take the parking space. This is supplied to the electromechanical power in the B‑Class, enabling its electric to perform the necessary steering

Infotainment: new systems for digital pleasure and Europe-wide navigation

It is not the spacious interior, the high-grade and the standard automatic climate that make the B-Class a pleasure to travel in: the new generation of systems has an important role to too. There are two new options to from: Audio 50 and COMAND. units incorporate a radio dual tuner, colour Bluetooth interface for mobile CD player, automatic volume plus a connection for external devices in the glove compartment.

The Audio 50 additionally features a DVD-based navigation system and DVD while the top-of-the-range COMAND even more functions, the even faster HDD navigation the Music Register, a slot for SD cards as well as voice and a new media interface.

The media is standard with Audio 50, and with the six disc integrated CD It can be specified as an option and allows an to be linked up to the Sports Tourer’s system. This has the advantage of the external audio devices to be by simply using the buttons on the steering wheel, while the titles are shown in both the cluster and the centre console’s display.

The sophisticated infotainment may be optionally combined with the ® surround sound . which transforms the passenger of the B-Class into a concert on wheels.
