Review

The B Class is smart inside, comfortable and really practical. If you’re looking for a genuine SUV alternative and you don’t need seven seats, it’s well worth a look. Unless you plan to do big miles, go with the entry-level B180 petrol in Sport or Sport Executive trim.

get the best price

The list of standard equipment includes climate control, LED headlights, cruise control, manmade-leather seats and 17in alloys. Go for Sport Executive, though, because you'll get a bigger infotainment screen, smartphone mirroring, power-folding door mirrors and some extra parking aids.

We haven't yet tried this entry-level diesel engine in the B Class, but it works well in the smaller A Class and is promises excellent fuel economy.
