2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Makes Its World Premiere

For a minivan, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class does not enjoy the same level of popularity with its brand’s other luxury cars and sport utility vehicles. Therefore, Mercedes raised the stakes with the 2019 model year unit of the auto to make it more appealing to buyers.

The B-Class has many similarities with the A-Class in terms of styling. However, compared to the A-Class hatchback, the new B-Class was made to feature a Sports Tourer design with its longer wheelbase and higher ride height.

Compared to the 2018 model year, the 2019 B-Class features a cleaner look with its smoother surfaces that are almost free of creases. Again, the same treatment was copied from the A-Class. The new model also distances itself from the outgoing unit with its lower roofline, short muscular overhangs, front lip spoiler, chrome linings and wheels with sizes ranging from 16 to 19 inches.

Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, describes the new B-Class as more chic and more practical than its predecessor. The more dynamic form of the auto allowed its maker to lower its drag coefficient down to 0.24 from the original 0.25. She added that the vehicle is designed for the family.

Interior

The interior of the new B-Class is a notch up from its previous model as it is now equipped with almost the same level of detailing found in the A-Class Sedan. The highlights of its cabin include the turbine-inspired air vents and dual 7.25-inch screens. The displays can be upgraded to 10.25 inches and there is an optional head-up display for buyers as well. Let’s not forget that the auto is getting the MBUX intelligent multimedia system of its brand too.

The longer wheelbase of the B-Class Sports Tourer also means more legroom for the occupants on its second-row of seats.

Trims

The 2019 B-Class is available in five trims. These are the B180 with 136 hp, B200 with 163 hp, B180d with 116 hp, B200 with 150 hp and B220 with 190 hp. An eight-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission comes as standard for all models.

Sale

Arriving in style at the eve of the 2018 Paris Auto Show was the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE bringing in new powertrains, tech elements, and more cabin space. The latest sport utility vehicle from the famous German luxury automaker made its world premiere alongside the new Mercedes-AMG A35, Mercedes-Benz EQC electric vehicle, and the Smart Forease concept car.

Powertrains

The range was highlighted by its GLE 450 trim. The unit is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor to deliver a mild-hybrid setup. The petrol-fed engine offers 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque going to the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. The electric motor provides a boost of 22 hp to the power of the GLE 450.

Mercedes said that diesel and plug-in hybrid versions of the GLE will follow. We are eagerly waiting for its AMG variant too!

Tech

The new GLE is riddled with new safety and driver assistance systems. The innovative technologies packed within the SUV are the 48-volt E-Active Body Control active suspension and the Active Tailback Assist. These elements help improve the vehicle’s ride comfort and agility.

The MBUX multimedia system introduced by the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan also comes with the new GLE. Basically, the system functions like Siri or Alexa. That means it is capable of recognizing and executing voice commands after the user utters “Hey Mercedes”.

Bigger Wheelbase

The new GLE extends its wheelbase by more than three inches. That translates to more legroom in three-row seating capacity. The second-row seats mostly benefit from the upgrade with more than two inches increase in legroom.
