This time, it’s personal

Under intense pressure from the SUV competition, the MPV segment is struggling to retain its fair share of the market. First introduced in 2005, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class has since sold 1.5 million units and the third generation of this sport compact tourer is designed to continue to buck the trend. The designers’ brief was to make the new B-Class stand out visually from the world of minivans. That brief was accepted and executed, with the long wheelbase with short overhangs, slightly lowered roof line and larger, 16- to 19-inch wheels contributing towards more dynamic proportions. The relatively squat, progressive front-end with flowing transition from bonnet to A‑pillar and on to the windscreen, along with the muscular shoulder of the body, underlines the sporty overall look. At the back, the width of the vehicle is accentuated by two-part lamps, reflectors integrated in the bumper and a distinctive black bumper bottom section with diffuser look and chrome trim strip. The large roof spoiler, along with high-gloss black spoilers at the sides of the rear window, makes for improved aerodynamics while ensuring a sporty appearance. The improved seat geometry and lower belt line...
