Mercedes-Benz B 170


Linus Leow Mercedes Benz’s B-Class Tourer featuring a new sporty-muscular and radiator grille.

Mercedes says that its new B-Class in 2005 is a Sports Tourer. is not to in anyway be mistaken for a MPV or simply a hatchback. A MPV is too soccer mum while a hatchback would make the look like a slightly expensive and larger A-Class. we figure out the marketing genius’s of what makes the B-Class a Tourer, there is no doubt in my of the generous space and style the offers within its relatively footprint.

The Mercedes Benz is based on chassis of the A-Class, both cars do not share a exterior panel. The B-Class is a design from the ground up and draws inspiration from the Conceptually as confusing as the B-Class may be, we at Fridae are in agreement that the B170 handed to us is a beauty and in ways than one, a great deal better its smaller sibling, the A-Class. The bonnet of the B170 does an impression of it resembling a regular car to the more compact A-Class.

With more than units sold since Mercedes Benz would be a to mess with the looks of the Simple and subtle alterations the front end getting a slightly three-louvre matt silver with chrome trim and a bumper to accommodate a large air intake. A useful polished steel scratch protection bumper has been added. A lift as quiet as this I suspect playing Spot the game could be a challenge. the Singapore market does not the new Eco Stop/Start System found on bound car. Diamler decision not to bring in the new ultra efficient Mercedes-Benz B170 NGT a new CNG engined variant which bi-fuel petrol/natural-gas added to the model remains a mystery. B170 NGT BlueEfficiency is easily of 1000 km on a single tank.)

In the current climate of economic the B-Class, in particular, the B170 here is crucial to Mercedes ambitious plans to challenge BMW and Offering executive car levels of room within such dimensions is truly a packaging There are arcs of room in direction, 544 litres of boot and an unbelievable 2245 litres can be for luggage with the rear folded away. The B170 has a driving position, as there are of adjustments and the view is as commanding as a Materials used are acceptable for a brand like Mercedes Presentation of the instrument dials is and easy to read, as long as one can get to the over-sized steering wheel. The reverse camera fitted on our unit was a thoughtful touch; parking made easy risking a neck injury.

The B-Class retains the unique platform of the first A-Class back in 1997. This that the engine will be beneath the car’s floor (passenger cell) in an event of a big impact. There are also safety systems like STEER CONTROL and BAS. In I would be insane to attempt to test how well these work, but the Euro NCAP of the highest five out of five possible score certainly set anyone’s mind at ease.

Expecting the B170 to drive a sports car, as suggested by its Tourer tag, would be the truth. The B170’s phenomenal which creates the huge room is the main reason to be for the non-sporting handling. The B170 into understeer way too often and too for any form of enthuastic driving to place. Of greater significance, the ride is ruined by the inability to road imperfections. Often the suspension gets caught out and the otherwise quiet and refined environment. Performance of the 1.7 SOHC engine mated with the (Mercedes speak for CVT, Variable Transmission) gearbox is and gives hardly anymore. the Autotronic provides the advantages of fuel efficiency as no gear take place, it certainly do with less noise acceleration from standstill.

While competitors like the A3 Sportsback and the BMW 1-series are close in of size and price but they a vastly different flavour of premium motoring experience. both rivals lack the space and the lofty driving of the B170. Also upon inspection on the listed pricing of the cars of similar specs, it out that the Mercedes Benz is a relative bargain by a handsome of S$8,000. The classy build and cabin ambiance of the facelifted with a relatively good price tag seems hard to as evidenced by the increasing numbers of on our roads.
