2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Priced From 21,290 Pounds
Set to go on sale in the United Kingdom in March next year, Mercedes-Benz has published the price tag for its new model and the cheapest one is going to be the B180SE which will cost from 21,290 pounds. This variant comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 120 hp and manages to return 47.9 mpg UK while its CO2 emissions stand at 138 g/km. The price tag might seem a little bit steep, especially if we have a look at the entry-level Ford C-MAX which is available for 17,195 pounds.
From 22,060 pounds you can get the new B-Class with the Sport trim which adds a sports suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, run flat tires, variable ratio steering and leather upholstery. Priced at 23,995 pounds, the B200 is available only in the aforementioned Sport trim level and has the same engine but it is tweaked in order to output 154 hp.
The cheapest diesel and the most frugal model in the lineup is the B180 CDI that offers 107 hp and is capable of returning 64 mpg while its CO2 emissions stand at 115 g/km. In the SE trim it will set you back 22,060 pounds while opting for the Sport spec increases its price tag to 23,360 pounds. If you want the 134 hp Mercedes-Benz B200 CDI, prepare to pay 23,410 pounds for the SE trim and 24,710 pounds if you choose Sport.
As standard, all of the engines are linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox, but if you are willing to spare 1,450 pounds, you can order the optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission which has been revised. Other extra goodies include the 3G Internet connection (1,995 pounds), panoramic sunroof (1,195 pounds) and a satellite navigation system (495 pounds).
