MB B-Class
« on: December 04, 2006, 05:00:47 PM »
Hi Guys!

What do you think of the new B-Class? My dad is contemplating to get one for himself and I would just like to get opinions from the motoring society.

TIA! :)

I got to drive one of these during the MB Week event sometime ago at the Rockwell Tent. IMHO, it's not a car I'd be willing to spend 2+M on. the interior materials felt and looked cheap, plus its steering was too light. the experience was underwhelming, unfortunately.  :(

It really depends on what your dad is looking for in a  car, what other cars are being considered?

i think he'll have more driving the 320i than a B class(B170?). it doesnt look like 2m+ car imo.

pero baka he wants it because its a benz?

Or a Brand New one(just add P140K)...
BMW 320i (150hp 2.0 liter DOHC inline-4, RWD) P2.39M

*quicker & more powerful than the B170, and its RWD.

Mercedes B170 (114hp 1.7 liter SOHC inline-4, FWD) P2.25M

its really TOO EXPENSIVE for a car .. and they are right, its not a good way to spend 2+M on a car... there are other much better options .... tsaka dont get it for the sake that its a benz ... its really not worth it ...

I have one, a B200 Turbo, as my daily car and contrary to everyone's posts, I think its a really good car especially for city driving.

Can't say much about the B170 but since engine is very basic, many people will probably think its overpriced. About its light steering, while it feels kinda weird at first, you'll actually get used to it quickly. This is now one of my favorite aspects in that car.

Here are some things I like about my B-class:
1) Raised seating position for better road view
2) Large windows for visibility
3) Fun drive with the turbo engine
4) Very generous legroom and boot space but exterior size is very compact (good for city driving)
5) Light steering that gets heavier as you gain speed
6) Nice interior ergonomics. You don't have bend much when getting in and out of the car.
6) Ipod integration very good
7) Unique and cute in a somewhat understated way

Of course, no car is perfect so here are some of my complaints:
1) Some minor quirks (power windows, handbrake sound) which is being addressed by the dealer
2) Suspension somewhat harsh (for sport version) typical in a small car
3) Side view mirror visibility not the best
4) Aircon not as strong as Japanese cars

I guess the bottomline is, it'll really depend on what you and your dad will be looking for in a car.  Good luck on your car shopping! :)

Hi Guys!

Thanks for all your comments!

I actually checked out the B-Class up close, and my first impression is that it really has a spacious interior. Being a 6-footer, I find it comfortable even in the back seat.

I don't know how the B170 or B200 drives, but I think the B200 will be a better choice (136HP) as far as the engine is concerned. However, the price is way high at 2.75m. Really not practical anymore.

The BMW 3-Series (320i) is very appealing! So as the Camry 3.5Q! :)

We'll still check out for upcoming models next year!

Thanks again! :)

If your dad really likes it, there's nothing inherently wrong with the B-class except for the outrageous price tag.
