The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class puts the emphasis on sport with the Sports Tourer. It looks more dynamic than its predecessor and is more agile on the road while offering greater comfort. Its avant-garde interior makes for a unique feeling of space with the distinctive design of the instrument panel. One of the special features is a basic volume, which drops away towards the occupants and has cutouts in the area of the driver and front passenger. The intuitive user interface of the adaptive MBUX multimedia system is ground-breaking. Its strengths include brilliant graphics, “Hey Mercedes” voice control, a standard touch screen and functions such as MBUX Augmented Reality. When it comes to active safety, state-of-the-art driving assistance systems make the B-Class one of the segment leaders with functions carried over from the S-Class. In addition, the interior is now more spacious, while the engines are more efficient and cleaner. The eight-speed dual-clutch transmission makes its debut.
“More practical than ever, more chic than ever,” is how Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes‑Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, characterises the new B‑Class. “In our portfolio of compacts, it’s the perfect vehicle for the whole family. And MBUX – the new Mercedes‑Benz User Experience – provides also the B‑Class with an all-new customer experience with functions that were previously the reserve of the luxury class.”
“The latest derivative of the new generation of compact cars from Mercedes‑Benz, the B‑Class writes a further punchy chapter in the success story of the dynamic Mercedes‑Benz Sports Tourer,” says Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG. “With its emotional yet purist design, the new B‑Class blends seamlessly into the design language of Sensual Purity.”
