What Car? says...
Like the idea of a Mercedes A-Class but need a bit more space for people and luggage? Well, that’s pretty much the reason the Mercedes B-Class exists. It shares its smaller sibling’s stunning interior and feature-packed infotainment system, yet offers appreciably more head and leg room in the back and a much bigger boot.
On paper at least, it all looks pretty convincing. The safety technology it has in common with Mercedes’ flagship S-Class luxury saloon should enhance its appeal with families, while its tall, full-figured body offers better accessibility to the interior than you’d get from a conventional low-riding hatchback – ideal for fitting child seats and loading luggage, in other words.
