2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class

Posted on by  

Revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show , the second-generation Mercedes B-Class is already about to receive its first update.

Our spy photographers caught this updated B-Class testing on public. As you can see, the prototype in these pictures is wearing camouflage on just the parts that Mercedes is updating.

Of course you shouldn’t expect anything big from the revised B-Class , as we only expect Mercedes to refresh it just enough to allow it to remain in dealer showrooms for a few more years.

These updates will include revised front and rear bumpers, and revised headlights and grille.

Under the hood, the updated B-Class will most likely keep the current engine lineup, which includes gasoline and diesel engines. Power ranges from 109 to 156 horsepower through the B-Class’ engine line. However, we expect to see some updates on the output and emission levels.
We expect to see the revised B-Class in early 2014.

Spy Shots

Judging by the strategically place camo, we expect to see new headlights, a new front bumper and changes to the grille up front. Above, you can see a comparison between the spy shot (right) and the current model (left), but the camo hides most of the differences.

On the rear, we expect to see a new bumper with nicely integrated exhaust pipes. The rear comparisons make it a little easier to see the differences, as the camo is far lighter on the backside.
