The new-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been revealed at the 2018 Paris motor show, headlined by sharper looks, more space, and the company’s latest in infotainment and driver-assistance technologies.
Scheduled to hit European showrooms next February (and Australia in mid-2019), the new B-Class gets a sleeker and sportier look than its predecessor, while also sporting a luggage area holding between 455 and 705 litres with the second row upright, depending on configuration.
With the rear seats folded, the boot expands to a massive 1540L. From mid-2019 European buyers will also be able to specify a folding backrest for the front passenger seat for even greater load capacity.
Like the related A-Class, the new B-Class gets the company’s new MBUX infotainment system with online connectivity and smart voice assistant, available overseas in three variants with different display sizes and combinations – it’s likely Australia will get the flagship dual-10.25-inch setup like the local A-Class range.
In terms of design, Mercedes-Benz has done its best to make the B-Class less tall and boxy than the outgoing model, giving it an aesthetic more akin to a tall wagon than a people mover.
