New Mercedes-Benz B-Class To Be More Family-Friendly And Advanced Than Ever

Prior to the all-new Mercedes-Benz B-Class premiering at the Paris Auto Show, a revealing teaser video of the car has been posted on Facebook.

Perhaps aware that spy pictures and videos have already snapped the new B-Class without any camouflage, Mercedes-Benz hasn’t held back with this teaser video. In fact, the short clip fully reveals the vehicle’s overhauled interior while also providing us with an excellent look of the exterior.

Starting in the cabin, the most obvious difference between the new B-Class and the outgoing model will be the presence of the German automaker’s latest-generation infotainment system. Dubbed MBUX, the system premiered in the new A-Class and consists of two large touchscreen displays that make up the gauge cluster and entertainment screen.

Will the B-Class remain the company’s ugly duckling?

Additionally, we can see that the new B-Class will have three seats at the rear which can be folded down flat. Other key interior elements include luscious leather, sleek air vents, and blue accent lighting.

As for the vehicle’s exterior, it will have a slightly more curvaceous and flowing design than the current model. Mercedes-Benz has dubbed the new B-Class “dynamic” and says it “puts the emphasis on the sports part of Sports Tourer”. Looking at it, we’re not entirely convinced about that description.

Beneath the skin of the new B-Class is Daimler’s Modular Front Architecture (MFA). Considering its underpinnings, it is reasonable to assume that the new B-Class will be sold with the same selection of engines as the A-Class. Consequently, we should see an entry-level 1.3-liter turbocharged petrol engine, a 1.5-liter diesel, and a 2.0-liter petrol.

    For some odd reason I think that this car will be a very good looking. I think that the current Mercedes design will suits very well on the overall shape and volume of the B class. In a high level trim and some bigger engine this car might actually be a very good family car.
