Mercedes B-Class Facelift
Published Date: 13th Aug 2014
Mercedes have revived the B-Class with a minor facelift, including subtle design tweaks and updates to the in-car technology.
Mercedes has actioned a facelift for the latest Mercedes B-Class, and our exclusive photos have caught the latest car taking a short break from testing, roaming around the mountains of southern Europe.
There aren’t many details at the moment, but based on the minimal disguise this test car is has on it, expect only a few styling tweaks focused on the front area of the car, with what appear to be slimmer, angular headlights, a stockier lower bumper and slightly larger air intakes.
The outside body redesign is quite limited at this stage to revised taillights, but on the inside Mercedes looks set to initiate a more comprehensive overhaul. While at first glance the layout looks essentially unchanged, with the usual three central metal aircon vents visible and again located under a large central-mounted crystal clear colour display, the B-Class will gain new in-car tech and extra standard features.
Underneath the bodywork, it is doubtful Mercedes will change the current engine range, although power and also efficiency could receive a boost. As the 64 Plate Mercedes E-Class has received significant power and economy boost in line with its own new facelift changes.
We will keep you updated as soon as any more details surface, specifically in the run up to the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October, which is where the new updated Mercedes B-Class is likely to appear for the first time for public viewing. With the small nature of the facelift, we predict that prices will remain similar to the current line-up when ordering opens this year.
