Mercedes-Benz B-Class Sports Tourer Hybrid Electric Vehicle Launches in Singapore

Mercedes-Benz Singapore launches the new B-Class today. The hybrid electric Sports Tourer features a unique sporty exterior, versatile interior, modern drive technologies and the latest generation of MBUX. The B 180 Progressive is priced at S$236,888 as at 8 June and are subject to change based on prevailing COE.

The B-Class has a sleek exterior design with wheels that are seamlessly integrated and come in four different rim designs. These wheels can be upgraded to sizes of up to 19 inches as an optional feature. The rear lights are divided into two parts and come equipped with LED technology as a standard feature. They contribute to creating a wider appearance at the back of the vehicle. Aero spoilers are attached to the sides of the rear window to further enhance the overall design. Additionally, the new B-Class offers a choice of ten different paint finishes, including solid, metallic, and special options.

Inside the B-Class, you’ll find a generously spacious and highly functional interior. The standard configuration includes a dual-screen display, while the optional variant offers two larger 10.25-inch displays. The distinctive three-round turbine-look air vents, which pay tribute to aviation, are a signature feature of Mercedes-Benz. The redesigned centre console showcases a sleek Black Panel aesthetic, emphasizing the vehicle’s advanced technology. Additionally, the standard steering wheel in the latest generation of the B-Class is wrapped in luxurious nappa leather, adding to the overall refinement of the interior.

The B 180 Progressive has a comprehensive standard equipment including a reversing camera, big multimedia displays, USB package, LED headlamps, parking package, wireless charging, easy pack tailgate and steering wheel in nappa leather.

The B 180 Progressive’s petrol engine range has been updated and consistently electrified with an additional 48-volt onboard power supply and a power increase of 10kW. The belt-driven starter-generator (RSG) also noticeably improves comfort, reduces noises and vibrations during starting procedures compared to conventional starters and follows ‘sailing’ with the combustion engine switched off during steady cruising. The RSG recuperates during braking and feeds the 12-volt onboard network and the 48-volt battery, which can be used during acceleration processes to support the combustion engine.
