drag coefficient of cd = 0.26, for a mini mpv is impressive

Definitely not the size of Toyota Wish.
Looking at it, more like the size of VW Touran.
I guess they are now positioning the A class in VW Golf size segment, B class in VW Touran (mini MPV) segment, and maybe a BLK to compete with VW Tiguan.

This b Class is already in the showroom a few mths back, at all time COE high, this was 130k, entry level Merc
The dashboard is not as nice as the pics.. its actually very spartan. Cos entry level :(
behind driver and front passenger seat, there is a megazine holder, in mesh netting. Very LC, like Taxi.

FYI, the F20 1-Series is a hatchback, whereas the B-Class is more mini-MPV.


Both shouldn't be compared together.


Wanna compare, compare the next A-Class. From the outgoing model high-riding hatchback to a sleek looking one.

The Nissan Qashqai is Crossover SUV.

B-Class is Crossover.

Different.


Yes, Latio and i30 can be compared with each other- both are hatchbacks.
