New Mercedes-Benz B-Class Doesn’t Look Half Bad In AMG 35 Suit

The new generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class may be a lot of things, but a hot minivan it is not. And from the look of things, Stuttgart has no plans on making one.

So, what’s with the deal with this proposal for a Mercedes-AMG B35? Well, it’s a rendering we stumbled upon, made by XTomi. The digital take shows the newcomer into the compact segment for MPVs dressed in some of Affalterbach’s design elements, taken from the A35.

And while there might be some who dig the new look, even with the new turbo’d 2.0-liter four-banger breathing air from behind the grille, it’s not really the type of AMG model that would keep aficionados up at night, right?

Plus, let’s not forget that adopting a potent engine alongside a tweaked chassis, new body kit and special interior amenities would also make it too expensive for a car in this segment.

Mercedes-AMG already has the A35 hot hatchback out, and will apply the same treatment to the sedan derivative, which should cater not only to those living in Europe, but to U.S. residents, too, as it’s the one coming to America.

The second-gen CLA is said to benefit from the same line of upgrades, too, and the German brand will probably apply the treatment to the next GLA as well.

    I like the new B-class

    I’m confused about where does this sit next to the new A class shooting break.

    • Christian Wimmer

      They occupy more or less the same niche, but the B-Class is softer and less sporty than the A-Class or CLA/GLA. Whereas the other models focus to some extent on a sportier (perhaps harsher) driving experience, the B-Class is soft and comfortable. Here in Germany the B-Class has been traditionally bought by older people who value that comfort and the roominess/versatility provided by the model.

        Thanks man, but size wise and practically I don’t think they both are much different.

  • Christian Wimmer

    I usually like the AMG Line trim on most Mercedes’, but when it comes to the new B-Class I think the standard model looks much nicer. The refreshed design already looks dynamic without the AMG Line trim and doesn’t require “extra athleticism” in the form of an AMG body kit.

    Great photoshop, though!
