It's not an SUV. All Mercedes SUVs are prefixed GL - the new GLB is due soon.

'a practical SUV below the GLC and above the sleek GLA. The Mercedes GLB will feature Front Wheel Drive, will be almost 4.60 meters long and have an angular shape'

The B-Class is a compact car - 'The future B-class will be Mercedesí first compact model to switch to a new, upgraded MFA architecture, hardly changed size-wise.'

Definitely a 5 seat ĎMPVí according to the motoring press, which is what the previous version was also defined as. Direct competitor to the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. Petrol and Diesel engines only.

Impressive drag coefficient though- 0.24 cd.......

I know. I just didn't want to create a sparsely populated MPV thread.


Anyway, several so-called crossovers are actually tall hatchbacks too.

I understand the avoidance of a separate MPV thread, but wouldn't the B-Class fit better in the 'Small and Family Cars' thread?

Such a tiny bit that it kinda just looks out of proportion than anything else. Bonnet looks like it melted.

Not even going to mention the front end, that's just bad. But the rear arch is all out of proportion too. The gap between the wheel and the window is massive. It makes the car look stretched height-wise.

It looks awful. Without BMW badges on it I would have thought it was a badly executed Chinese knock off.
