As you can see, only the front and rear don light camouflage, which means that these are the parts that Mercedes is likely updating. We certainly were not expecting anything major from this update, which is clear from the camo, but this revision should be enough to keep the B-Class fresh for the next few years.
Included in this revision will be a new headlight and taillight design, a new grille, and new front and rear bumpers. You should also expect some minor improvements inside the cabin and under the hood. The under-hood updates will likely focus on improving the fuel economy figures.
We expect to see the revised Mercedes B-Class unveiled in early 2014.
When compared to the prototype caught testing back in September, the one from today wears the new set of taillights, which Mercedes hid under the camouflage. The model will also get a new set of headlights, a new front bumper and a more upright grille.
Around back, there is a new bumper with nicely integrated exhaust pipes.
