What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For A stylish-looking car with plenty of room for five people and all of their luggage

Against The ride is poor around town, and the car lacks flexibility so it doesn't cut the mustard as a genuine MPV

Verdict A roomy, capable hatchback with a poor ride

Go for… B200

Avoid… B200 Turbo

Mercedes-Benz B-Class MPV
  • 1. Visibility is mostly very good, although it’s hard to tell where the nose of the car ends when parking
  • 2. Avoid a car with the optional firmer Sports suspension. Some people find the ride even on the standard car hard enough
  • 3. The interior feels like it should stand the test of time, but you should still check for any broken or loose trim
  • 4. There are several engines to choose from, but we reckon the 134bhp B200 has the best balance of performance and economy
  • 5. The entry-level trim has most of the kit you're likely to want, so there's no need to spend more for the SE
