Compact driving meets Mercedes-Benz's signature dash of luxury and sophistication in the form of its bold multipurpose B-Class series. Safe and dependable while also easy on the eyes both inside and out, the series offers two generations to date that combines a large indoor space and excellent practicability. The first generation, released in 2005, primarily features 1.5L to 2.0L petrol or 2.0L diesel engines alongside a 5- or 6-speed manual transmission. Particularly affordable used, the B-Class is popular for couples and small families looking for a compact vehicle that doesn't sacrifice style.
The lineup from the mid-second generation in 2015 includes the B180 and B180 Sports equipped with in-line 4-cylinder DOHC 1.6L turbo engines. These models combine all grade, 7-speed dual clutch transmissions (7G-DCT) and adopt an ECO start-stop function. The sporty exterior, which has further expanded the large indoor space and excellent practicality from the second generation, adopted the latest Mercedes design and the latest equipment that embodies safety.
Other grades include the B250 4 Matic Sport with its 2.0 L in-line 4-cylinder DOHC turbo engine. It is the first in the B class to be equipped with the 4 MATIC variable torque distribution 4WD system. In addition, the special models B180 Sport Edition Red (150 limited), B250 4 Matic Sport Edition Red (50 limited) are set with this technology. The exterior features a high-gloss black paint 18-inch AMG multi-spoke aluminum wheel that enhances the sporty look. The interior combines vivid cranberry red leather seats and door panels with black ash wood interior trim. These B-Class vehicles also have an advanced safety driving support system option, the Radar Safety Package and "keyless go" which can lock or unlock the doors without using a key and can start the engine just by pushing a button.
