New B-Class joins growing compact Mercedes range
Everybody wants a crossover or SUV but fewer folks seek out an MPV. Will the new B-Class buck the trend?
Today, the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class has little to no competition. In fact, its primary rivals the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and Volkswagen Golf SV have exited the SA automotive arena after disappointing stints in the sales charts.
Few manufacturers currently still offer compact MPVs in various sizes and prices but the new B-Class for all its virtues, becomes the only premium offering in the niche.
