  • MODEL HISTORY

    Model History

     

    You wouldn’t think that a luxury mini-MPV would be very popular, but customers flocked to the first-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class in droves. The second generation (dubbed W246) was introduced for the 2012 model year, and it expanded on the mini people-carrier’s luxurious intentions. The base Mercedes B-Class SE was fitted with a host of high-end kit, like a standard reversing camera, aggressive looking LED running lamps, and a large 7 inch colour display with a new multimedia audio system. Spend a few extra pounds, and your B-Class will be outfitted with things like a panoramic glass roof, a larger 8-inch screen with a more complex multimedia system, a self-parking system, ambient lighting, and active headlights which turn with the steering wheel. If you want the luxury of an S-Class, with the utility of an MPV, then the new B-Class will earn an A in your book.

     

    On the safety side, the redesigned W246 B-Class features a new version of the sandwich floor structure found in the previous generation. In the event of a frontal crash, the entire drivetrain slides beneath the passenger cell to limit intrusion. There’s also a full complement of front and side airbags and, for the first time, Mercedes’ excellent radar-based Collision Prevention Assist system comes as standard on the W246 B-Class. This advanced safety suite uses radar sensors to scan the road ahead, then alerts the driver through an audible warning if the computers determine that a crash is imminent. The Adaptive Brake Assist system then moves the brake pads closer to the brake rotors, to maximize braking once the driver pushes the pedal. Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keep Assist, and radar-guided cruise control are also available.

     

    The point of having a miniature people carrier is practicality, and the redesigned Mercedes B-Class doesn’t disappoint. The standard height-adjustable cargo floor allows you to fold down the rear seats to maximize cargo capacity. For more room and a flat load floor, you can fold the rear seat bottom forward, which allows you to fold the seatback flush with the cargo floor in the boot. There’s also a cavernous under-floor storage bin in the boot, folding tables on the front seatbacks (later models) and the optional Easy-Vario-Plus seating system adds fore/aft adjustment to the rear seat, along with the ability to fold the front seatback flat. Effectively turning your Mercedes MPV into a moving van.
