2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class spied with less camouflage

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been spied undergoing testing in Germany ahead of an expected debut either later this year or early in 2019. While this prototype looks like it's been painted white, it's actually a silver car with a white body wrap applied to it. From certain angles it's clear that the company has also stuffed in some plastic cladding to hide final design flourishes on the bonnet, shoulder line, and front wheel arches.
