Key facts

Sports Tourer in better shape than ever

After three successful years, Mercedes-Benz has overhauled the design and engineering of the B-Class. The facelift programme focused on environmental compatibility, economic efficiency and comfort, with further advances being made in each of these areas. Thanks to a series of detailed improvements, the four-cylinder engines now burn up to seven percent less fuel than previously, and distinguish themselves with remarkably low exhaust emissions that undercut the current EU limits by as much as 90 percent. Mercedes-Benz has developed a new ECO start/stop function for the high-volume B 150 and B 170 petrol models. This switches off the engine when stopped at traffic lights, for example, producing a fuel saving of up to nine percent in practical use. Another new feature of the B-Class is active park assist, a feature which helps drivers both to both find a suitable parking spot, and then manoeuvre into it.

Since its market premiere in autumn 2005, the B-Class has evolved into the blueprint for a new species of car which harmonises the benefits of various vehicle concepts: the four-door model boasts the dynamic design of a sporty saloon, the exterior dimensions of a compact car, the spaciousness of an estate, the versatility of a mini MPV and the trademark safety of a Mercedes-Benz.

The sales figures for the B-Class to date provide clear evidence that the Mercedes-Benz product planners hit the mark with a concept that caters to the motoring needs of today's sophisticated society: since mid-2005, over 350,000 motorists around the world have been won over by the Sports Tourer. Over 15,000 B-Class have been sold in the UK since it launched in autumn 2005.

With four engines and two trim levels to choose from selecting a B-Class has never been easier. The two trim levels are the SE and the Sport. The SE has a fixed panoramic glass sunroof as standard while the Sport model line gets the previously optional Sports Package as standard and includes 17” alloy wheels, Sports suspension, an aluminium look gearshift, brushed stainless steel sports pedals with black rubber studs, fabric/ARTICO upholstery and other trim features.
