More Versatile than Ever: The All-New Mercedes-Benz B-Class


Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Mercedes-Benz in the Philippines, recently unveiled the all-new Mercedes-Benz B-Class, redefining practicality, versatility and safety while putting emphasis on a sportier tourer identity.

Dubbed as a small multi-purpose vehicle, one of the main highlights of the new B-Class is its spacious interior and cabin. Traditionally, the B-Class is the ideal family car because of its emphasis on space, comfort and safety yet sporting a compact vehicle profile -- revolutionizing interior design while retaining cargo space. The new B-Class offers increased interior dimensions from its predecessor, offering more headroom, elbowroom in both the front and the rear. The seat is also more elevated to a more level position making it more comfortable to sit in the vehicle. It also improved the all-around visibility, minimizing the risk of overlooking vehicles and pedestrians.

An ideal family vehicle, the new B-Class showcases state-of-the-art active safety features which are only available from the higher models such as the prestigious S-Class. It is equipped with Active Brake Assist and Attention Assist -- two risk-mitigating technologies that assist the driver to avoid accidents and collisions while driving. To add to one’s peace of mind, the vehicle comes equipped with airbags for the driver and front passenger, including window bags and a kneebag for the driver, as well as ISOFIX child-seat mounts and Top Tether attachment points in the rear backrest, plus a host of other safety features.

The state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is also found in the all-new B-Class, revolutionizing a new era in automotive connectivity.  At the heart of the MBUX system is a highly intelligent virtual assistant, which is activated by pressing a button in the steering wheel or by simply saying, “Hey Mercedes”.  It caters to voice commands to attend to infotainment functions such as destination input, phone call, music selection, climate control, and ambient lighting.
The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is priced at PHP 2.690 Million Pesos and is now available for booking and test-drives at all Mercedes-Benz dealerships nationwide.
