A class of its own

Innovation often comes from asking difficult   at once. It blends the best aspects of different
questions. How can a car that’s compact on     vehicle concepts and, in doing so, creates
the outside be truly spacious on the inside,   something truly special – a car that boasts
for instance? Or how can something practical   compact dimensions, eye-catching style
and useful also be elegant and attractive?     and the versatility to meet all kinds of needs.
The B-Class answers several such questions
6         Exterior design

An unmistakable face

Despite its compact dimensions, the B-Class is
almost impossible to overlook. After all, this is a
car whose design is as unique as its concept. Its
raked bonnet merges seamlessly with the dis-
tinctive grille. Large front air intakes and flared
wheel arches further emphasise its sporty lines.
8         Exterior design

A rear that leads
from the front

The B-Class is equally eye-catching from the
rear. Its distinctive bumper and short aerial
make for an even sportier look. The tail lights
are both attractive and highly effective, thanks
to adaptive brake light technology. If the driver
performs an emergency stop at speeds in excess
of 31 mph, the brake lights flash several times a
second, sending a clear signal to those behind.
In addition, the hazard warning lights come on
automatically if the car is brought to a standstill
from a speed of over 43 mph.
                          Exterior design         9

Compact and yet
perfectly formed

The B-Class front end boasts a stylishly sporty
look. The distinctive three-bar grille features
chrome edging and a Matt Silver finish. The
transition from grille to bumper is smooth and
elegant. All models come with body-coloured
exterior mirrors. There are eye-catching 18"
AMG 5-spoke alloy wheels for the Sport and
Active Park Assist for the SE.

Performance under

The B-Class petrol models eat up the miles with ease, yet
drink only in moderation. Thanks to innovations such as
reduced friction losses and optimised combustion, they
are as efficient and environmentally friendly as ever, with
lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions. For more
details about the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of
all B-Class models, please refer to page 55.

Rather like athletes, diesel engines are often at their best
under pressure. That’s why our common-rail diesel
engines feature high-pressure direct injection. It sends
fine jets of fuel into the combustion chambers and ensures
exactly the right amount is injected at any engine speed.
This not only reduces the amount of fuel required and
lowers CO2 emissions, it also maximises torque, with up to
250 Nm and 109 hp (80 kW) for the B 180 CDI and up to
300 Nm and 140 hp (103 kW) for the B 200 CDI.

Hopefully you’ll never
have to think about our
airbags again

For the vast majority of B-Class drivers, they remain
unseen and unused. Should the worst come to the
worst, however, the airbags ensure optimum occupant
protection in an instant. What’s more, the standard
dual-stage front airbags inflate only to the required
extent. Sensors assess the force of an impact and, if the
collision is less severe, the airbags are only partially
inflated. If the impact is more serious, the second
stage is triggered and the airbags are fully inflated.
In addition, there are standard head/thorax sidebags
and windowbags or optional rear sidebags for effective
side impact protection.

For more light in
dark corners

The B-Class helps you avoid danger when driving in the
dark. Its optional bi-xenon headlamps are considerably
brighter than conventional halogen headlamps, illuminate
the sides of the road more effectively, and, on full beam,
have a significantly greater range. The bi-xenon option
also includes the Active Light System. By enabling the
headlamps to follow your steering inputs, it provides up to
90% better illumination when cornering, allowing you to
see up to 25 metres further into the bend. Also included is
a cornering light function that switches on automatically
when you indicate, helping you avoid unpleasant surprises
in dark turns.
18        Safety | Integrated safety concept

Should the worst come to
the worst, we ensure the
best possible protection

In the B-Class, you’re protected by a network of carefully
coordinated and highly advanced safety features. The high
seating position, for instance, not only gives you better
all-round visibility, it also considerably reduces the risk
of injury in front-end collisions. In conjunction with the
positioning of the engine block, it enables engine and
transmission to slide downwards along the sloping pedal
floor and underneath the passenger compartment.

In addition, every B-Class is equipped with crash-
responsive emergency lighting. As soon as restraint
systems such as the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioners
deploy, the hazard warning lights are switched on
and, if set to automatic, the interior lights activated.
This helps the occupants to see after an accident
and makes the vehicle more clearly visible to the
emergency services.

Adaptable by nature, the B-Class can be made more
versatile still – with the optional Easy-Vario system.
It allows you to fold the front passenger seat backrest
forward or remove both the passenger seat and the rear
seats entirely. This gives you a flat load floor that’s almost
three metres long and a cargo capacity of 2,205 litres.
The optional folding rear armrest can also be removed
completely, giving you a convenient through-loading
facility for long luggage such as skis. Smaller items,
on the other hand, can be stowed safely in the storage
compartments on either side of the boot.

comfortable seats all round. On SE models, they come
with Groningen cloth upholstery in either Orient Beige,
Black or Alpaca Grey, while Sport models feature an
Artico artificial leather/Bastogne cloth combination.
Optional leather upholstery is available across the range.

Of course, you can only truly sit comfortably if your
driving position is right, which is why every B-Class is
fitted with height adjustment for the driver’s seat.
For an even wider range of adjustment, simply add the
optional Seat Comfort Package. It includes seat tilt
adjustment and adjustable lumbar supports for the driver
and front seat passenger, plus height adjustment for the
front passenger seat.

Parallel parking made easy

The B-Class has a helper for almost every task. Even parallel parking.
Just put the car in reverse and let Active Park Assist (optional on Sport)
get to work. It identifies the gap and, once you’ve confirmed you want
to proceed, steers you safely in. All you have to do is use the accelerator
and brake pedal to control the car’s speed. Among the many other
useful driving aids is Hill Start Assist. It holds the car steady when
pulling away on inclines, preventing it from rolling backwards as you
switch from brake pedal to accelerator.

                                                                              Active Park Assist in action

The only one counting the miles will be the trip computer

The B-Class makes long journeys more enjoyable for all,
thanks to a rear that seats three in comfort. Even the
youngest passengers are well looked after, thanks to
standard ISOFIX child seat points with top tether
attachments. By enabling child seats to be connected
directly to the car body, this easy-to-use system ensures
optimum safety for small children. For those aged six or
over, an integral rear child seat is available as an option.

The four large doors ensure getting in and out is as easy
as possible too, while the front door sill inlays with
‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering make for a stylish welcome.
For an extra touch of elegance all round, the seats and
door panels can be upholstered in optional Orient Beige,
Alpaca Grey or Black leather.

The panoramic glass sunroofs

Thanks to its high seating position, the B-Class offers
excellent visibility all round. What’s more, you can
enjoy clear views overhead too, with the panoramic fixed
glass sunroof.

Alternatively, opt for the panoramic louvred glass sunroof
and give your B-Class an almost cabriolet-like feel.

At the touch of a button, the first louvre turns through
90 degrees to act as a wind deflector, then the other
four slide back smoothly to reveal an opening that’s far
wider than a conventional sunroof’s. Both panoramic
glass sunroofs feature a scratch-resistant surface,
as well as manually operated twin blinds should you
require shade.

Take-back of end-of-life vehicles. Coming full circle. At the end of its long life, you can return your B-Class to us for environment-friendly
disposal in accordance with the EC End-of-Life Vehicle Directive. But that day lies a long way off.

Applies in accordance with national regulations to vehicles up to 3.5 t permissible gross weight. The B-Class has met the statutory regulations governing the suitability

of the vehicle’s design for reuse and recycling for a number of years now. A network of vehicle take-back depots and dismantlers has been established which will
process your vehicle in an environment-friendly manner. The ways in which both vehicles and parts can be recovered are subject to ongoing development and improvement.
Consequently, the B-Class will be able to comply with any future increases in the recycling quota within the stipulated time limits. Further information is available at
