If you are in the market for a small family car with enough power to get you comfortably to your destination than look no further because the 2015 Mercedes B200 does all those things with no problems! The car is expected to be released somewhere at the end of this year or around the start of 2015. The base price will be around 27.000$ making it perfect for a small family car. It will feature all the commodities you would want as standard. If you still want more equipment, than the top of the range model will set you back around 34.000$.
2015 Mercedes B200 Exterior
The exterior of the 2015 Mercedes B200 will get a bit closer to that of the current A Class, just with minor changes. That means we can expect bigger headlights with included LED strips, slimmer tail lights as well as a newer rims. The basic model will get 16 inch alloys while the AMG package will get 18 inch wheels with high performance tires.
Interior of 2015 Mercedes B200
As we would expect from a Mercedes, the B200 offers quite a bit of kit. You get satellite navigation, a quite good audio system, climate control, electric seats and premium quality cloth upholstery as standard. If you’d like you can receive ventilated and heated front seats, heated windshield and also an electric rear bench.
2015 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Specs
The B200 can be obtained with two engine options. There is the standard petrol powered version with a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine that puts out around 157 horsepower and as much as 185 lb-ft of torque and also a natural gas powered one that features a 2 liter turbocharged engine that produces 157 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will offer great mileage thanks to technology improvements but if you want to cut fuel costs in half than the natural gas powered version might be for you. Unfortunately, none of these engines is what you would call fast. Sure, both of them offer enough power for cruising down the motorway or for a long range trip but if you’d like to drive a bit sportier you won’t be able because both of them offer quite a slow response time.
There will also be available a fully electric version with a 100 kW electric motor. This will have a set of batteries that will offer around 110 miles of range with one charge which is more than enough for the daily commute.
Transmission and drivetrain of B200 Mercedes
Both engines come as standard with a 7 speed automatic that is quite smooth but not that fast. There will also be available an 8 speed dual clutch transmission but only on the petrol engine model. Unfortunately, the 4Matic all wheel drive system isn’t available on this particular model.
