As part of the facelift, Mercedes-Benz has revised the B-Class's model range and brought the model breakdown into line with the other compact models. There are three new design and equipment lines: Style, Urban and AMG Line. Each features plenty of distinctive exterior and interior details. The Night, Exclusive and AMG Exclusive packages build on these and provide more options for individualisation. New KEYLESS-GO functions simplify operation.
The Style equipment line underlines the B-Class's stylish appearance. Exterior characteristics include light-alloy wheels in an expressive design, radiator trim with two louvres painted in iridium silver with chrome inserts, and shoulderline trim strips in chrome. For the stylish interior there are seats with Vianen upholstery fabric, trim with a line pattern, and selected elements in silver chrome such as the moulding on the multifunction steering wheel, highlights on the gear lever, and the switches on the top control panel. Useful details like a double cup holder on the centre console and a 12 V socket in the rear round off the high-quality feel.
The Urban equipment line emphasises the vehicle's sportiness both inside and out. The radiator trim with two iridium-silver painted louvres and chrome inserts, 43.2 cm (17-inch) 5-spoke light-alloy wheels and twin-pipe exhaust system with chrome-look tailpipe trims integral with the bumper create a dynamic look. In the interior, the sporty character is on display with seats featuring upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather/Montfoort fabric and a leather multifunction steering wheel with perforated grip area. Details such as contrasting topstitching, silver chrome highlights and sail pattern trim round off the high-quality feel.
The AMG Line augments the vehicle's sportiness and exclusivity. A dynamic look is created by the muscular AMG styling, a radiator trim with two iridium-silver painted louvres and chrome inserts as well as twin-pipe exhaust system with chrome-look tailpipe trims integral with the bumper. A lowered comfort suspension with Sports Direct-Steer system improves handling and boosts driving enjoyment. 45.7 cm (18-inch) 5-twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, perforated front brake discs and front brake callipers with Mercedes-Benz lettering round off the striking exterior. Seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre and the multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section, as well as a gear lever with perforated leather, add stylishly sporty elements in the interior. This equipment line also includes red contrasting topstitching on the door armrests, centre console, seats and gear lever. The AMG Line also has its own carbon-fibre-look trim in shiny black. Brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs are another highlight.
The Night package allows the exterior to be further individualised. It includes selected design elements in black. The radiator trim sports two high-gloss black louvres and chrome inserts. The 45.7 cm (18-inch) high-sheen light-alloy wheels, exterior mirror housing and shoulderline trim strips also come in black. Dark-tinted glass from the B-pillar to the rear guards against prying eyes and simultaneously emphasises the sporty character.
Comfort, quality and design are the hallmarks of the Exclusive package. Highlights include heated front seats with 4-way lumbar support that, like the multifunction steering wheel and gear lever, are covered with high-quality leather. The instrument panel and door centre panel are trimmed with matching ARTICO man-made leather. Leather seats are available in the following expressive colours: cranberry red, hazelnut brown and black. Silver chrome design elements also help to create an exclusive ambience. The Exclusive package also includes two different wood trims - open-pore eucalyptus and high-gloss carenero ash. Among the many other practical details are infrared convenience closing and a 12 V socket in the rear.
Building on the AMG Line, the AMG Exclusive package offers even more exclusivity, individuality and sportiness. Features include heated seats with 4‑w ay lumbar support, where black RED CUT leather upholstery with red contrasting topstitching creates striking highlights. To match them, the instrument panel and door centre panels, as well as the armrests in the doors, are trimmed with ARTICO man-made leather and have red contrasting topstitching. The leather multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section and perforated grip area and the leather gearshift lever emphasise the sporty character.
New optional extras include the KEYLESS-GO starting function – whereby the vehicle is started by pressing the starter button – and also KEYLESS-GO. This access and drive authorisation system, which also incorporates the KEYLESS-GO starting function, allows the vehicle to be opened, started and locked simply by carrying the electronic key with you.
