Active Braking Assist
Active Brake Assist can help to prevent rear-end collisions. It can provide visual and audible warnings when you are too close to the vehicle in front, assist with braking or even carry out fully autonomous braking.
This can prevent accidents or lessen their severity. The system can also brake the vehicle up to speeds of approximately 60 km/h, even in the event of standing vehicles and crossing pedestrians. Depending on the situation, this can even prevent collisions up to a speed of 50 km/h.
Apart from setting a new benchmark in design, the MULTIBEAM LED headlamps also illuminate the road better than any conventional headlamps. This means you can recognise dangers even more quickly.
How it works: the LED headlamps react automatically to changing surroundings or weather conditions. They adapt the light pattern to the new situation in a matter of milliseconds. Fast, flexible and precise, they provide for especially bright illumination spanning a particularly broad area without dazzling other road users.
And see what new B-Class holds in store: the ultimate in seating comfort, space and flexibility in the load compartment.
Low loading edge.
Plenty of room for supreme comfort: with the new B-Class, convenient loading begins with the low loading edge. The load compartment is also easily adaptable to your needs, as the rear seats are extremely flexible: you can adjust the angle of the seat backs or fold them down individually. Up to 1540 litres of load space are then available. Even bulky luggage will fit comfortably into the particularly wide opening.
The slightly raised seat position in the new B-Class means you don't have to climb up into or down out of the car. You slide effortlessly into your seat. You also have an ideal view of the traffic, which makes driving noticeably more pleasant, particularly in the city. The large windows also improve all-round vision.

With this in mind, the optional ENERGIZING package Plus combines various systems – air conditioning, ambient light, music and seating comfort – into programmes lasting several minutes which are designed to vitalise or relax you.
Enables convenient loading and unloading of the new B-Class.
Whether you want to load the weekend shopping or your skiing gear, optional HANDS-FREE ACCESS allows you to open and close the boot lid on the new B-Class without any contact with the vehicle.

With integrated massage function for driver and front passenger.

Heated multifunction steering wheel.*
A steering wheel heating system warms the rim of the steering wheel up to a pleasant temperature.
You'll never want to let go of it: the optionally available heated multifunction steering wheel treats you to luxury-class comfort. The wheel is heated independently of the vehicle's heating system, to get your hands quickly warmed up. The multifunction steering wheel additionally offers you convenient access to many vehicle functions via Touch Control. This means you can keep your hands on the wheel and devote your full attention to the traffic.
Everything is different here, yet so familiar.
Discover a supremely intuitive operating concept that keeps adapting ever more precisely to your needs and habits every day.
Apart from its fully intuitive operation, the new B-Class also keeps adapting to your needs and habits every day. It notes your route to the office, for example, and can offer a faster route automatically in case of a traffic jam. This all forms part of the revolutionary MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). A multimedia system that keeps learning about you and your preferences. Until the new B-Class knows you almost better than you do yourself.
Touch opertaing concept
You won't find any conventional buttons and controls in the B-Class cockpit. Everything is new here. The touchscreen or the touchpad, for example, which allow you to operate and adjust almost anything in the car using a single finger. The display styles, the ambient lighting or the infotainment system, for example. You can now also control these features directly via Touch Control on the steering wheel. All without having to take your hands off the wheel.
The cockpit welcomes you with two fully digital displays that present a fascinating spectacle as a single unit. This display unit exudes class and is simple to adapt to your needs. There is a choice of three display styles - "Classic", "Sport" and "Discreet Mode" - for example, which you can switch between according to your mood, the course of the journey or the given driving situation.
The new B-Class understands you like no other car. In the truest sense of the word. Thanks to new MBUX voice control, it listens to you and understands you without you having to learn any commands beforehand. And it does much more besides. It checks the weather at the destination for you, changes the radio station or takes you home on the fastest route. Reading out text messages, or dictating one and sending it? It takes just two words from you - "Hey, Mercedes" - and the new B-Class is all ears and ready for anything.
A clear view of the traffic situation for the driver remains one of the best safety systems. MBUX augmented reality for navigation helps you to keep control of things even in complex traffic situations. To this end, the technology interlinks the virtual and real worlds to incorporate graphic navigation and traffic information into live images of the vehicle's surroundings which are shown to you on the media display. In this way, the system can help you to reach your destination more safely and with less stress.
The feeling at the wheel is also amazingly variable.
A tap on the Dynamic Select switch is all it takes for a sporty set-up. Optional 4MATIC all-wheel drive engages automatically for added traction. And two cylinders can be shut down automatically to save fuel. The new B-Class offers a thrilling driving experience tailored perfectly to you and your driving situation.
4MATIC all-wheel drive is available for all engine variants of the new B-Class, to provide for the best possible combination of dynamism, traction and efficiency in every situation. An electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch integrated in the rear-axle differential enables a variable torque split. This ranges from economical front-wheel drive only to a 50:50 split on snow or slippery road surfaces or in dynamic driving manoeuvres. So you take the entire journey in your stride.
You can adapt the driving characteristics of the new B-Class according to your wishes by means of the DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs. Depending on whether you prefer a particularly comfortable, sporty, economical or individual driving style, you have a choice of four programs - "Comfort", "Sport", "Eco" and "Individual". The system alters the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension, steering and air conditioning automatically at the touch of a button. For driving enjoyment just as you like it.
Adaptive Damping System
For more enjoyable cornering, a particularly economical driving style or the ultimate in comfort on long journeys: the suspension on the new B-Class features an Adaptive Damping System which can adapt the wheel damping and the driving characteristics to your needs at any point on your journey. Just select one of the three profiles - "Sport", "Eco", or "Comfort" - via the DIRECT SELECT switch in the centre console. It's as if the new B-Class had several different suspensions.
A cutting-edge generation of 4-cylinder petrol engines with cylinder shut-off is available for the new B-Class. Two cylinders can be shut off automatically, specifically in the lower load and rev range. This saves fuel without any noticeable loss of power. As soon as the driver accelerates firmly, the cylinders go imperceptibly back into operation.
