2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class officially unveiled


Mercedes-Benz has just officially unveiled its all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class MPV ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. While there isn’t much left that we don’t know about the new B-Class MPV, we still like to see more of the new photos and specific details about it.

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class is a bit larger and looks more sportier than its predecessor. The new design features a sporty grille and a more dynamic bodywork along with new headlight and taillight designs. It offers more space on both passenger and cargo, while delivers better fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

The interior of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class receives modern style elements such as circular vents and hand crafted leather finish and stitching all around, which were found in the sedan models. In addition, it gets a new three-spoke steering wheel, and a new 7.0-inch TFT color display as optional equipment.

The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class will be offered with a wide range of gasoline and diesel engines that feature an auto stop/start system as standard. Initially available are the 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine variants, which come with 122 hp and 147.5 lb-ft of torque for the B180 and 156 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque for the B200.

For the 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine variants, which come with 109 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque for the B180 CDI and with 136 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque for the B200 CDI.

The engines comes standard with the  six-speed manual transmission or the 7G-DCT seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz will officially debut the new B-Class at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, with deliveries are expected to be November, and whether it will in the U.S. is another question we will have to wait after the show.
