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.

dont waste time drivin armor veh w 1.6l engine; pickup's pickup faster than u ok...

 

have 2 of my neighbor upgrade; one prev was odysy, other was volvo - i have very strong feel that deep down their hearts after the "upgrade" sure feel the 1.6 B-class BO KUI; shouldn't have gone for the BRANDING...

new b class is 1.6L TC

new 116i is 1.6L TC

hands up if u go for 116i

 

 

 

 

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.

Looking at the spy shots, looks like the new A class will be a totally reformed stunner. Think Alfa 147, Golf, Opel Astra type of continental hatch

Look closer ... new B class is 1.6T + 7G DCT (not 7GTronic, not 7 speed Autotronic CVT) ... it's 7 speed Dual Clutch Transmission.

Everyone is going into 1.6T, with the bigger cars 1.8 or 2.0T ... to be in the Euro 6 CO2 emission bracket (effective from 2014, compulsory from 2015).

 

Japanese car makers are beating the emission via another route, their engine development is going petrol hybrid, which will more than meet the Euro 6 CO2 emission criteria.

true...by the way, most of the European manufacturers do have the petrol hybrid capabilities already and also diesel hybrid..and this is one route which they might seriously consider as well..

Hard to believe the new B-Class is only 1550mm tall- about the height of a Nissan Latio. It really looks larger than it is in the pictures.

 

Don't be fooled...
