Mercedes-Benz Australia has announced pricing and specs for the new B-Class, which is now available exclusively in B180 Sports Tourer guise Down Under, starting at $46,400 before on-road costs. Power comes from a 1.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 100kW and 200Nm, put to the front wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission...

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQ B spied

Mercedes-Benz's practical plug-in, the 2020 EQ B, has been spied testing alongside the EQ C on snowy roads. Although we've seen what look like plug-in hybrid B-Class models in past, this is the first time our spy photographers have managed to snap a pure-electric model. How do we know? The big sticker saying 'electric' on the windscreen is only applied to electric Mercedes prototypes, for one...

2018 Mercedes-Benz B-Class, CLA recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2018 B-Class and CLA over concerns about an issue with the automatic occupant detection system in the front passenger seat. If a child seat is installed facing backwards in the passenger seat, it's possible the airbag might not automatically turn off...

2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class revealed, here mid-2019

The new-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been revealed at the 2018 Paris motor show, headlined by sharper looks, more space, and the company's latest in infotainment and driver-assistance technologies. Scheduled to hit European showrooms next February (and Australia in mid-2019), the new B-Class gets a sleeker and sportier look than its predecessor, while also sporting a luggage area holding between 455 and 705 litres with the second row upright, depending on configuration...

Mercedes-Benz recalls several models for faulty airbags

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for numerous model lines over concerns the airbags could release metal parts in the event of deployment – though the company says it's unrelated to the ongoing Takata recall campaign. The marque reports 78 units across the A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, E-Class, GLA, GLC and AMG GT ranges could be affected by the issue, which could see the airbag gas generator housing eject metal parts if the inflator is deployed...

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...

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 confirms new 7-seat compact model

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class family – which includes the B-Class, CLA and GLA lines – will get a three-row option very soon, a company official has confirmed. Speaking with industry journal Automotive News Europe, Mercedes-Benz's global sales boss, Britta Seeger, hinted a seven-seat model is in the works for markets like China, though it's unclear what form it will take...

Mercedes-Benz recalls A, B, C, E, GLA and GLC

Mercedes-Benz has recalled almost 22,000 cars across the A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, E-Class, GLA and GLC model lines, over concerns the driver airbag could inflate without warning. According to the company, electrostatic discharge could trigger the airbag if the steering column isn't sufficiently, or if the column switch module isn't grounded...

2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class spied

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been spotted during cold weather testing in northern Europe. As with the first two generations of the B-Class, the new model shares its underlying front-wheel drive platform with the A-Class, but with improved passenger comfort and load-lugging ability thanks to a taller roof line...
