The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class
The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is now on sale in Ireland, with a number of models in the new B-Class range priced lower than the model they replace.

Mercedes-Benz is continuing to offer increased levels of standard specification while maintaining or reducing their new model pricing. ‘Consistent with our on-going product offensive, we are fully focused on delivering best value with the first model to benefit from this being a B180 petrol which comes on the market at €32,745 (ex works) – a four-digit reduction on the previous model,’ said Ciaran Allen, Sales Manager at Mercedes-Benz Ireland.

A B160 version will launch at a later date at similarly reduced pricing.

The new B-Class is among fifteen new or facelifted models that the luxury carmaker will introduce here this year. It slots between the new A-Class and recently facelifted C-Class family, with a practical five door, five seat arrangement.

Five engine variants make up the new range, all compliant with new Euro 6d-TEMP regulations mandatory from next year. They include two petrol and three diesel variants.

Speaking on the arrival of the new generation of the B-Class, Ciaran Allen, said: ‘Designers have squared-the-circle by creating a more sporty, more spacious, more youthful design without having to sacrifice anything in terms of its practicality, comfort or capacity.’
