Next Mercedes B Class coming to the US

Last Updated:

We were supposed to get the current model, but at the last minute, they decided to send it to Canada and not to the US.

But the next generation is coming, and a couple of other “Sub-C class” models as well.
That could include a small sedan version of the next A Class. And maybe the A class itself. Unless they come up with a small SUV based on it…
Lets just hope this horrific camouflage hides something nice.
The GLK and new E class sedan are not good signs of things to come from Mercedes.
We’ll see…
We’ll see….

  1. I'd love to see the B Class end up here, Vince. I'd likely be the first on in line for one or maybe the A Class.

    I had a '97 A160 for the 10 years that I lived in Ludwigshafen and throughout Bavaria in Germany. It was a fantastic vehicle and I never had a single problem with it and I drove it for 190,000KMs.

  2. We get the current B Class here in Canada. It's not a bad car, very practical, but it doesn't fit with the brand image.

    The base engine (2.0) is a dog. The turbo version is nowhere near as strong as what you'd get in an Audi, a Saab or even a GTI.

    I suspect that the only reason to sell it in America is that not enough people are buying Smarts to offset the CAFE penalties from the big Benzes.

    This should be their marketing slogan: "Buy a B Class so your boss won't have to pay so much for his AMG."

    Maybe truth in advertising isn't such a good idea after all.
