The New-Generation B-Class

Daimler Press Release
20 May 2008

In presenting the B-Class in summer 2005, Mercedes-Benz produced the blueprint for a new, future-oriented market segment and a new species of car which precisely meets the wishes of today’s motorists. The Sports Tourer combines generous spaciousness and great practicality with a dynamic design and a high level of driving pleasure. In other words, a touring, family and recreational car with an incomparable added experience value in terms of design and dynamism.

To date the B-Class has won over more than 350,000 drivers, making it one of the most successful new Mercedes model launches in recent years. For the product planners, designers and engineers this meant that there was actually little reason to make changes, however they have put together a highly appealing package of model facelift measures and given the Sports Tourer a more attractive profile than before in terms of safety, environmental compatibility, economy and comfort. These are supplemented with discreet but certainly effective design modifications which make for a more youthful appearance and emphasise the agility of the B-Class. In short: a successful makeover in every respect.

The extensive standard equipment of this model will be even more generous from spring (northern hemisphere) 2008. At no extra cost, Mercedes customers will have the benefit of newly developed systems which further enhance their safety and comfort. These include for example headlamp assist, which switches on the vehicle lights automatically when the car enters a tunnel or an underground car park, hill-start assist, which prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when moving off on an uphill gradient, and flashing brake lights which effectively warn following traffic when danger occurs. Power windows with one-touch control are also standard equipment, as is a steering column adjustable for reach and crash-responsive emergency lighting.

Premiere for innovative new developments
High-tech systems from the Mercedes-Benz luxury class are available as optional extras for the B-Class, making the Sports Tourer more comfortable, more versatile – and more unique. One outstanding technical highlight is the new active parking assist, which helps the driver to reverse into parking spaces and carries out all the necessary steering movements automatically. Another new development, which Mercedes-Benz is offering in the A and B-Class for the first time, is the ECO start/stop function, which switches off the engine automatically when idling.

And finally there is a choice of three new infotainment units, which boast a colour display, Bluetooth interface, telephone keypad and a connection for external audio units. The new top-of-the-line Audio 50 APS and COMAND APS units also have additional functions such as Europe-wide navigation and a DVD drive. COMAND APS is also equipped with a voice control system as standard.
