Three years after the launch of the second generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class, time has come for a major facelift of the MPV-style compact model (C-segment, lower medium category), or "sports tourer" as defined by the German brand, with exterior and interior enhancements, new design and equipment lines as well as several power variants.

Before the world première at the Paris Motor Show (4 to 19 October 2014), orders started last week, with deliveries to dealerships from 29 November.

The 2015 (model year) Mercedes-Benz B-Class is available with five diesel and five petrol (gasoline) engine variants, in addition to two alternative drive systems (B 200 Natural Gas Drive and B-Class Electric Drive) and optional 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

Conquest model

From the launch of the 1st generation in 2005 to the end of 2013, Mercedes-Benz sold over one million B-Class units, with a "conquest ratio" of around 30 percent sold to customers coming from a different automotive brand.
