If you are looking for a classy minivan with the premium interior and astonishing ride quality, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz B-class is a perfect choice. This model will represent just one of the company’s eight body styles that will soon arrive. That includes A class hatchbacks and sedans.
Of course, every model has its own pros and cons, and this compact minivan is no different. We like the feel of luxury around this vehicle and the smooth ride it offers. However, there is no seven-seat option which is the main disadvantage as this is a real family vehicle. Furthermore, the 2019 B-class is popular among older customers that will enjoy in a higher seating position and user-friendly interior. Under the hood, the minivan will borrow engines from the A class lineup of hatchback and sedans. Also, this year model will also get a electric version.

Unfortunately, the minivan is not offering seven seats. Moreover, the new layout of the controls and switches will confuse the customers. We don’t say the layout is bad, it’s just the new layout that shares nothing with the previous version.
No matter which trim level you opt for, an elegant interior is what you get with the B-class minivan. The base model comes with the instrument board that looks little cheap but it isn’t. Space is ample and that includes the legroom as well. The headroom is better thanks to the taller roof.
