With the generation change in autumn, the new Mercedes B-Class will have more interior space. In contrast to the A-Class, the B-Class will stick to its high roof concept.
With the generation change in autumn, the Mercedes B-Class will be more spacious. While the next A-Class, like the “Concept A” design study shown in Shanghai, will be flatter and sportier, the B-Class will remain with the high-roof concept. The most spacious variant of the new model family will be premiered in September at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt and will be available for sale this year, said series manager Hans Engel during the last test drives. The new A-Class will not follow until 2012. A small sedan in the style of the CLS and a compact SUV follow each year.
More space with little growth
In the case of the B-Class, the previous so-called sandwich floor is only drawn in for variants with alternative drives. That is why you will usually sit a little lower in the future. In this way, the B-Class becomes noticeably more spacious, although its dimensions are "only marginally larger" compared to its predecessor, Engel said.
With the generation change, the B-Class should move closer to the rest of the Mercedes family, Engel explained the development specifications. In future, the engines will come from the C-Class, and the range of assistance systems includes drowsiness warnings, traffic sign recognition and lane guidance assistance, as well as distance control with emergency braking. The B-Class is also the first Mercedes to have an automatic with dual clutch. (dpa / tmn)
