On the inside, the B Class facelift gets a new steering wheel, which comes from the new C Class, satellite navigation and an updated 7-inch touchscreen interface for the infotainment system.
The 2015 B Class carries over its engines from the outgoing model. The petrol variant is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder motor that pumps out 121 bhp and 200 Nm. On the other hand, the diesel variant of the B Class gets a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that has a maximum power of 134 bhp and peak torque of 300 Nm. Both the motors come mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the front wheels.
