2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class spied

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been spied in Germany this week, wearing a thinner disguise for a closer look at the new MPV's proportions. Finer design details are obviously concealed by the swirly wrap, but we can see that the shape of the B-Class will be an evolution of the current model, while the key design cues will draw upon the new A-Class – with which it is closely related...

Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6 review: The one true X-Class?

Mike Costello jets to Europe for a first run in the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6, driven by Merc's very own six-cylinder diesel engine. On first impressions then, the X350d feels more like a ‘proper’ Benz than the four-cylinder version, and does more to justify the cost of those three-pointed star badges (two at the front, one at the rear, one in the tub, one on each side step and each wheel, and one each on the steering wheel and gear shifter, in case you forget what you’ve purchased)...
