The 2023 Mercedes B-Class comes with all electrified models!

Mercedes has announced a 2023 facelift to the B- class with some minor changes. The B- class comes with some changes in design and other changes that make it a better prospect than ever before. If it was a prospective car before because let’s be honest, it was not a good looking thing.

The Design Upgrades

The first changes that you will notice in the new B-class is the updated front end. In fact, the overall modern approach sets some new standards and it is definitely a much smarter looker than the outgoing model. They have added an optional LED headlamps with a modern look, a sporty bumper and the radiator grille that gives the new B-Class some visible ”sportiness” if you may. It then transitions smoothly to the visually compact greenhouse. The Sports Tourer variant comes with a sporty A-pillar, externally flush-mounted wheels that can be customised to four unique rim designs in dimensions that have sizes up to 19 inches, which include an optional high-gloss black painted light-alloy wheels with a high-gloss rim flange for the AMG Line. 

The front part is not all where the changes are, the rear end has also gotten changes like the new, two-part rear lights powered by LED technology as standard. The aero spoilers attached to the side of the rear window compliment the style given by the rear LEDs and improve aerodynamics. You will be able to buy the B-Class in ten different solid/metallic or special paint finishes.

What has changed on the Inside? 

When you enter the 2023 B-Class you will find a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch infotainment display as standard. Optionally, you can also get a larger 10.25-inch digital cluster. You can steer the vehicle with the flat-bottom steering wheel and Mercedes has removed the infotainment display’s rotary controller on the center console.

There is an update to the MBUX as well for it to incorporate a fingerprint sensor, an improved Hey Mercedes voice assistant, and three redesigned display styles named Classic, Sport, and Discreet. The standard comfort seats with center sections use 100 percent recycled materials keeping the environmental concerns of the world in mind.

There are some safety updates on the far side as well like an upgraded Driver Assistance Package including improved Lane Keeping Assist system, Active Steering Control, and an optional Trailer Maneuvering Assist function.

Engines and their Electrification! 

Under the hood of all petrol variants of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz B-Class are electrified engines, most of which use a 48-volt mild-hybrid system with a belt-driven starter-generator. Different markets will get different variants that include the B 250 e, B 180, B 200, B 220 4Matic, B 250 4Matic, B 180 d, B 200 d, and B 220 d guises.

The B-Class also has Plug-in hybrid versions in the facelift which are equipped with a higher efficiency high-voltage battery that, in addition to the 3.7 kW charging standard, can be charged with alternating current at up to 11 kW, instead of 7.4 kW as in the past. You can also charge up to 22 kW through a DC charger, that translates to the battery being juiced up from 10 per cent to 80 percent capacity in 25 minutes. The electric motor has also been upgraded to deliver an extra 5 kW, resulting in a total of 80 kW.
