2018 Paris Motor Show: New Mercedes-Benz B-Class Unveiled — More Dynamic & Comfier Than Before

2019 Mercedes B-Class Unveiled: Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the all-new B-Class at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is more dynamics and comfier than the outgoing model. The handling has also improved and it has got a lot of technologies borrowed from the A-Class and the S-Class.

Codenamed as W247, the new third-generation B-Class is the fourth out of eight new small cars coming from the German luxury car manufacturer. The line-up includes the new A-Class hatchback and its sedan version.

The new B-Class still retains the ‘extended-hatch' body style but comes with the new ‘predator face' front proportion — a design introduced first on the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLS. The 2019 Mercedes B-Class is slightly larger than before and boasts of a lower drag coefficient (0.24).

The sharper design accompanies new 16-inch and 19-inch wheel options. However, we do not expect the latter to come with the Indian version.

Inside, the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class has a dual-display (7.0-inch and 10.25-inch) dashboard setup, just like in almost all recent Mercedes models. The five-seater MPV also features the latest version of the brand's MBUX infotainment system, along with a host of safety and driving assist equipment, including semi-autonomous driving.

In global markets, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz will be available in five engine formats: two petrol and three diesel models. The B 180 and B 200 petrol models will employ the same 1.33-litre four-cylinder petrol engine in two states of tune: 126bhp | 200Nm and 163bhp | 250Nm, respectively.

The petrol engines and the 1.5-litre diesel will come mated to a 7-speed automatic while the 2.0-litre diesel will have an 8-speed automatic. Rumours also suggest a chance to introduce an all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz B-Class.

Thoughts On The New Mercedes-Benz B-Class

The new B-Class surely packs a lot compared to the current model. Not much is known about an India-launch of the new Mercedes-Benz B-Clas but we expect it to happen in the second quarter of 2019. India is one of the best markets for Mercedes-Benz when it comes to selling diesel models and for the same reason, we expect the brand to price the new B-Class competitively. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class does not have a direct competitor in the country.
