Mercedes-Benz A250e/B250e revealed, A250e here in 2020

Mercedes-Benz has continued its A-Class and B-Class expansion, revealing plug-in '250e' hybrid variants of its small cars – and the A250e is heading for Australia next year. By combining the 1.33-litre turbo petrol engine from the A180 and B180 with an electric motor making 75kW, Mercedes-Benz has managed to extract a total of 160kW and 450Nm from the 250e powertrain...

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...

2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class confirmed for Paris

Mercedes-Benz has announced three new models will make their public debut at the Paris motor show next month – the recently-revealed AMG A35 and GLE, along with the all-new B-Class. It's the first time the marque has officially confirmed the latter's reveal, with the new model claimed to put "the emphasis on the sports part of Sports Tourer"...

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...
