We informed you about Mercedes planning to enter the small car market with their A & B Class cars a few weeks back. Today we have got some real time images of the B-Class which is yet to be launched and undergoing rigorous tests.
The next-generation B-Class will come with sliding rear seats that will make for a split between trunk space and rear leg room. Plus it will also be equipped with the Mercedes Benz tech gadgetry including the lane assistance system and internet access.
Under the hood Mercedes internationally will offer five petrol engines and four diesel options. The power band for the Petrol will range from 109PS to 204PS, while the diesel engines will provide power figures from 122PS to 204PS.
The 2012 B-Class will be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show to be held in September, Mercedes may plan a Hydrogen fuel cell and EV version of the B-Class later some years down the line. In India this car if priced right can shake the whole industry as owning a Mercedes\BMW\Audi has always been a dream of many car enthusiasts, so people might opt for the ultra-premium hatchbacks which wear the Mercedes\BMW\Audi badge.
