Mercedes-Benz B 200 Progressive Line for RM239,888
Here comes an all new Mercedes B-Class which is long overdue for the Malaysian market. This all new Mercedes-Benz B-Class puts the emphasis on sport with the Sports Tourer. It looks more dynamic than its predecessor and is more agile on the road while offering greater comfort and space.
The avant-garde interior of the B-Class ensures a unique feeling of spaciousness with the distinctive design of the instrument panel. The intuitive user interface of the adaptive MBUX multimedia system is ground-breaking. Its strengths include brilliant graphics, “Hey Mercedes” voice control, a standard touch screen and functions such as MBUX Augmented Reality. State-of-the-art driving assistance systems give the B-Class one of the highest standards of active safety in the segment with functions carried over from the S-Class.
The Malaysian showrooms get the Mercedes-Benz B 200 ‘Progressive Line’ version. This new B-Class is now more dynamic and agile on the road, with greater comfort and space. It is now more practical and chic than ever, making it the perfect car for the whole family. It comes with the 1.3-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces an output of 163hp and maximum torque of 250Nm, giving it an acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 8.2 seconds.
With the Progressive Line exterior, the B-Class has a characteristic that combines the best of both worlds – functional meets accomplished sportiness. The design and equipment line substantially enhances the car with radiator grille with silver-painted twin louvre and chrome insert, front apron with chrome insert, side sill panels and the 18-inch 5-twin spoke light-alloy wheels, giving it dynamic proportions. The relatively squat, progressive front end with flowing transition from bonnet to A-pillar and on to the windscreen, along with the muscular shoulder of the body, underlines the sporty overall look.
At the back, the width of the vehicle is accentuated by two-part lamps, reflectors integrated in the bumper and a distinctive black bumper bottom section with diffuser look and chrome trim strip. The large roof spoiler, along with high-gloss black spoilers at the sides of the rear window, makes for improved aerodynamics while ensuring a sporty appearance.
Its interior features a welcoming, wrap-around cabin which sweeps seamlessly from the dashboard, centre console and around into the doors.
The centre console with touch-based control and input system comes with a black panel look similar to the E-Class. The ambient lighting with 64 colours and ten colour worlds is unique in this segment, allows individual adjustments to suit the mood.
The new B-Class is also the second car model after the A-Class to feature the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system. Its other strengths include touch screen control as well as a high-resolution Widescreen cockpit, navigation display with Augmented Reality technology plus intelligent plus voice control with natural speech recognition, which is activated by saying “Hey Mercedes”.
The new B-Class comes with driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, lending a helping hand while on the road, keeping families out of harm’s way. It comes with the Blind Spot Assist – radar sensors that monitor the areas directly alongside and behind the car. It helps warn the driver when there are objects detected while changing lanes. It also comes with the Active Brake Assist, which can help mitigate the severity of rear-end collisions with slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles ahead.
