The new Mercedes B-Class 2023, rival of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer on the market, does not care about the overwhelming power of SUVs even to the detriment of crossovers, and allows photographers to immortalize himself while showing off its slight facelift.
The third generation of the B-Class was launched at the Paris Motor Show in 2018 and in its new incarnation now shows a style more resembling the A-Class, especially in the lower and lower parts of the bodytrying to give its passengers and driver more space on board.
Guests sitting on the rear bench seat will enjoy more head-level space and will be able to stow much more liters in the trunk.
Aesthetically, the new B-Class seems to have received a dowry a new optical unita revised radiator grille and the changes to the design, as mentioned above, were made above all at the lower levels of the grille and the car body, albeit in “fingertips“.
The restyling also requires some changes inside the passenger compartment with the introduction of a new and larger dashboard display, with digital indicators. There is also the inevitable central infotainment display, with the updated version of the MBUX.
Mercedes digital assistant should see disappear the trackpad to control the infotainment system and its menus, but there will be the introduction of the new steering wheel including many touch buttons.
The current range of B-Class engines should be preserved. So room for the 1.3-liter petrol engines with 136 HP or the 2.0-liter 116 HP. All engines will be electrified and there should also be the hybrid engine, on plug, Plug-in, capable of combining the 1.3 diesel, 160 HP, with the 75 kW electric motor.
European markets will be able buy the 2023 B-Class by the end of this year. The model will not debut in America and Canada.
