To the Indian customer, a Mercedes-Benz logo means a big size luxury car, but Mercedes-Benz B Class is a compact MPV hatchbackthat does not have the appeal a normal Mercedes-Benz.

There is ample legroom in both rear and front for the driver and passengers. The interiors of a B class offer the qualities of a Mercedes E class. The black coloured interiors with smart dashboard design give a sporty feel. The air conditioning vents are very well designed whichis a concepttaken from Mercedes-Benz SLS. The only odd thing about the interiors of this car is the command display screen embedded on the top of the dashboard thatparticularly looks like a tablet stuck at the top of the dashboard. Apart from this screen, everything else about the interior of the car is great.

So if you are looking for a mini SUV hatchback family car with a big trunk space to take you luggage on long tourholidays, then it is a must buy car for you.
Mercedes Benz B Class has many competitors in the small-car segment. BMW i3, which has a startling design, gives good competition to B-Class. Nissan Leaf is another car that threatens the market of Mercedes-BenzB-Class. Though, Nissan Leaf interiors do not have the class that Mercedes Benz’s interiors have. Cars like Chevrolet Volt and Ford C-max energy also stand neck in neck with Mercedes-Benz with a little lower price.
