Mercedes-Benz B-Class Design
The third generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has evolved rather significantly. Gone is the dowdy looking MPV of old, replaced by a sharper and more modern looking exterior. Up front, you get a sleeker looking LED headlight with integrated DRL, housed in a more aggressively styled front bumper design, accented with chrome inserts. The front radiator grille with silver-painted twin-louver is reminiscent of an old-school bi-wing airplane, punctuated by the massive Mercedes-Benz 3-pointed star.
Like its predecessor, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class is based on the platform of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class but offers more room in the cabin. The lower ride height and a shorter front overhang gives the car a more touted stance, and despite gaining a few millimetres in the overall height, it is barely noticeable thanks to the generously raked A-pillars and the slopping roofline.
The Proggressive line also brings along a chromed front apron, side sill panels, 18-inch five-twin spoke alloy wheels, blacked out lower rear bumper with chrome accents, and a pair of unapologetically fake trapezoidal exhaust exits. And like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the MPV features a hatchback style opening at the rear with an integrated roof spoiler.
