Default 2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class

https://www.netcarshow.com/mercedes-benz/2019-b-class

Here is the real deal; Thankfully, without several months of teasers, prototype test drives and unrealistic sketches before;






Keeping the theme, looking not bad for a small MPV, getting the usual updates for a Mercedes nowadays (AMG GT inspired front end, all tablet interior with MBUX and , because the 60+ aged average customer certainly cares, fake exhausts);

Generally I'd prefer this over the BMW 2 series GT, not only does it look cleaner, but a small MPV seems less wrong as a Mercedes (plus, you get at least 4 cylinders here) than it does as a Bimmer...

Certainly more refined and sophisticated looking than the current gen. Greenhouse is a bit awkward, but I appreciate MB trying to preserve an airy greenhouse. This certainly has more of a form-over-function appearance than many of their other designs.....

The design is fantastic, much more refined than the current model and the sporty look def helps. Looks way better than BMW's attempt.

I agree; WIth slightly recessing the wide tablet into the dashboard, it looks way more integrated, and less tacked on;

yup and the vent detailing is great without being overdone like on the new GLE which is very busy inside.
