PREVIEW: A technical look into the new Mercedes-Benz B-Class
This sort of photos is quickly becoming a tradition for Mercedes-Benz in advance of the official presentation of a new model. After the SLS and the SLK got previewed in the same way, it's time we saw a bit of the upcoming B-Class. And that's exactly what happened a few days ago when a set of teasers and technical images were leaked onto the web. Among the photos we found two darkened studio shots which only reveal the basic shape of the new compact MPV. The rest showcase either the construction of the body structure, made up of various materials divided into specific panels, or certain components such as the steering column or the front axle. One photo reveals the multitude of safety and assistance systems the new B-Class will feature: Collision Prevention Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS, Speed Limit Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, PRE-SAFE, Active Parking Assist, Torque Vectoring Brake, a rich list of airbags (thorax, pelvis and kneebags in addition to the conventional ones) and many other clever solutions to make your life easier whilst driving.
