MORE 4B

MERCEDES-Benz has upgraded its B-Class with extra equipment, as well as revised bumpers and a new grille to create a fresh look. Standard fare includes a reversing camera, self-parking, sat-nav and partial autonomous braking (it doesn’t apply maximum brakes). All but the base B180 get LED headlights, while the B250 flagship picks up 18-inch alloys (17s on the others), lowered suspension and an AMG bodykit. Prices have increased by between $500 and $3800, the latter for the B250 that picks up 4Matic all-wheel drive.
