The new 2019 Mercedes B-Class is ready to launch as a new generation continue to innovate since the first Mercedes B-Class model introduced in 2011. But on the new compact-class platform from Mercedes rolls a new edition. Now the new B-class got caught. For the first time, they also show the new interior of the compact van.
The new Mercedes B-Class will again share the technology and platform with the A-Class. The backbone for both is the new MFA2 platform, on which Mercedes builds all compact models. While the new Mercedes A-Class celebrated its debut in early 2018, fans of the van version have to be patient until 2019.
In design, the B-Class seems to be a little more dynamic. The tail end is not quite as vertical, the roofline seems to be a bit flatter.
2019 Mercedes B-Class Engine Specs
On the technology side, the new 2019 Mercedes B-Class may also be included in the group building kit. The engines will continue to be a mix of Renault and Daimler units. The small gasoline engine with 1.33-liter displacement and the 1.46-liter diesel come from the French (163 and 116 hp). The more powerful units with two liters of displacement and four cylinders as diesel and gasoline are from the Mercedes house.
In the autumn of 2018, the two-liter diesel in the Mercedes B 200d with 150 hp or in the B 220d with 190 hp should probably follow, probably with the four-wheel drive 4-Matic. An alternative to the diesels could be a B 220e (plug-in hybrid) with 13.7 kWh battery and about 70 kilometers of electric range. The first power model expected in autumn 2018 is the AMG A35 with the two-liter four-cylinder (M260), 48-volt vehicle electrical system and belt starter generator (RSG). The system power will be about 300 hp.
Even with infotainment and connectivity, Mercedes upgraded the 2019 Mercedes B-Class noticeably. On board is the multimedia system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). When driving, the driver will probably rely mainly on the mini touchpads in the steering wheel. The highlight in the new B-Class: The widescreen cockpit with the freestanding displays, which, depending on the equipment, fails completely.
