Mercedes-Benz has revealed the facelift of the second generation B-Class model, first presented in 2011. Among the design changes is the new front end with the current brand’s styling.

The restyled exterior of the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class features a new bumper, a wide radiator trim with two louvres and headlights with LED High Performance headlamps and integral daytime running lamps that give the vehicle a more organic and dynamic appearance and recall the current brand design DNA.

From a technical standopoint, there are new safety features available, including an enhanced Collision Prevention Assist (Plus) systemwith autonomous partial braking and an updated Attention Assist feature, that now uses a five-stage bar display to visualise the driver’s current attention level.

The B-Class Electric Drive uses the B-Class’s modular ENERGY SPACE body concept: The underbody houses the lithium-ion battery (B-Class Electric Drive). Due to this intelligent packaging method, the five-seater model has been able to retain the generously proportioned luggage compartment for which it is known.

The new B-Class can be already ordered, with deliveries starting in November.

    It looks like they had a chance to redo that awful side, with the ridiculous arbitrary lines swimming all over the place… but they didn’t :(.
