      Mercedes B-Class to be launched in India next month

      Mercedes B-Class to be launched in India next month: 0verdrve Exclusive


      Mercedes is set to unveil a surprise this July, the new B-Class. An MPV, the Mercedes B-Class will most likely have two engines, the 1.6-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged direct- injection petrol engine in two power outputs – 122 and 156PS and the 1.8-litre diesel engine with 109 and 136PS respectively. The transmission choices will be between a new 6-speed manual and a 7-speed auto transmission. There will be paddle-shifts behind the steering as well for the auto variant. Both the engines will come with standard stop-start feature. It is the first Mercedes vehicle to be based on the new front-wheel drive MFA platform.
      The new B-Class just like any other Mercedes car will be kitted with safety equipment including Collision Prevent Assist, Adaptive Brake Assist and Pre-Safe. The interiors will have standard Merc fare along with electric seat adjusters, a glass roof and dark tinted insulated rear windows. Expect the new Merc to start an all-new premium segment in India with its sub-20 lakh rupee pricing.

      Well one can understand that MBIL wants to grab the market share which they have lost to Audi and BMW but is India ready for these models??

      They already got a hit with MB100D and now this new model...now that market is inclined towards cross-over and SUV, why not MBIL bring some model in that platform rather than bringing something they already got!!

      Mercedes Benz B Class launch on July 19

      The B Class price in India is expected to start at Rs 25 lakh. As per the information available, the new Mercedes car will be available in the AMG kit and only few cars will be imported initially. On the other hand, in order to make the car cheaper it will soon be produced at the Chakan facility.
