2019 Mercedes B-Class Overview – Comes With A-Class Sauce – There is no two without the three, it is usually said. The third generation of Mercedes B-Class, presented at the last Paris Motor Show, remains true to its character of a minivan without falling into the temptation to wink at the SUVs and crossovers. Based on the same MFA modular platform that we find under the new Class A, mutuals from the C segment of the Star part of the onboard technology, MBUX on all. But it is not the only novelty that the 2019 Mercedes B-Class brings with it.
Once upon a time, They were the ones, until a few years ago, to be the master: the minivans were the dream in the drawer of many Italian families. Over time they have been replaced by SUVs and Crossovers, but there is no doubt that those like me who grew up in the 90s find a small smile on their face recalling the fashionable cars of those years.
Grown up in all sizes, the new B-Class 2019 has a decidedly + 20mm mark for the wheelbase, all to the advantage of comfort and habitability on board. The look is LED, with a luminous sign of the headlights given by a double strip characteristic for the model. Optionally, the customer can also opt for Full LED or Multibeam LED technology. Important circles, which can touch up to 19 “, while at the rear we find some goodies that increase not just the character, such as the black speaker and dual lights, to which is added the pair of exhaust terminals. Not bad, for a minivan.

The position of the seats is also revised, raised by 90 compared to the A-Class, while the beltline is decidedly lower, giving a greater sensation of sportiness. The rear bench is sliding, a factor that positively affects the capacity of the trunk: once opened the tailgate – electric – we can use a load compartment that starts from liters to 1,540 by breaking down the back. Add to this the goodies like the ventilated, heated and massaging front seats. Because traveling is nice, but getting to your destination is even more relaxed.
