Mercedes-Benz B-Class 2012 Model Details
This is the all new B-Class. It will soon be available with a dedicated eco version of its actual engine. It will come with four-wheel drive. The future models will be offered with a range of alternatively powered engines. The car’s chassis does not have a sandwich architecture now, permitting the engineers to lower its center of gravity by up to 30 mm. The B-Class will be much sportier but it will still offer the same comforts. In the space between the floor and the under tray, the carmaker has put in a new “energy storing space.” This is typically used for the storage of batteries, natural gas tanks and fuel cells. The hydrogen and hybrid variants, which are intended for 2013/2014, will get this new feature. The new B-Class will be fitted with a multi-link rear suspension that’s meant to hold the four-wheel drive, 4matic models that would be offered on more powerful models also on AMG models.
Mercedes-Benz is thinking about taking advantage of its alliance with Renault to create a lineup of three cylinder engines so that it could have the most efficient range possible. This new powerplant is a direct injection 1.6 litre turbo, and it will be offered in two versions that will deliver 123 hp or 154 hp. The carmaker focused on the torque that the engine will have at the lowest revs. This is why peak power is able to attain an incredibly low 1,250 rpm.
