2019 Mercedes B-Class Reveals New Interior And Grille Design

The last time we saw a 2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class prototype, it was back in December and the camouflage it was wearing was quite heavy.

Now, the car looks a lot less shy, ditching the plastic cladding around the front, giving us a much appreciated sneak peak at its grille design. On top of that, we also get to see the interior, which features Mercedes‘ latest infotainment system, the same one that you’d find inside a new-generation A-Class hatchback.

The styling of the all-new B-Class is visibly sleeker than the one found on its predecessor, aka the current model. Where the 2018 B-Class looks sort of like a compressed version of the now-discontinued R-Class, the 2019 model seems to be more of a bigger A-Class, its platform sibling.

From what we can gather, the grille is not necessarily unlike the current one, although we imagine the car to look more aggressive due to its more angular headlights and pointy taillights – probably similar to the ones on the new A-Class, though bulkier.

A practical and more modern interior

Like the second-generation B-Class, the all-new third-gen model will focus on practicality and clever storage solutions, while also boasting modern safety and convenience features. Aesthetically, we see a shorter center console than on the new A-Class, with everything else appearing to be the similar in design and function.

Also, look close at the spy images and you’ll notice two distinctive interiors, one with a full length infotainment screen, and one with a split screen design (two 7-inch displays), probably reserved for the entry-level versions.

As for the car’s engine range, expect to see certain petrol and diesel A-Class units transition up to the all-new B-Class, although we wouldn’t hold our breath for anything with an AMG badge. Still, some sort of electrified power train should join the range at some point.

Mercedes could unveil the 2019 B-Class either later this year, or sometime next year, with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer as its sole premium competitor.

    We full well know what the interior will look like lol. Interior quality and ride/handling balance are what these new generation compacts needs to get right. The current one are not even close to what a MB should be.

    I never knew that one day I might actually say (wow) for the B class, I hope the final production version is way better that the ongoing model.

      those displays come by default in every A-Class unless you pay 3300 euros for the advanced nav system. a total rip-off

  • Cobrajet

    They should be wood instead of black.

    Yes, it’s horrible. And the E-class and the CLS have the same design: a hideous cheap-looking screen and shiny fake “chrome” or “piano” plastic. Why would the buyer of a luxury car want their dashboard to look like someone just put an everyday handheld device there?

    And the shiny plastic… like in a ten year old Ford. I just don’t get it.

    those tiny displays are insulting for a car this price… I’d rather have my old regular clocks than that crap
