The all-new sports tourer is expected to occupy the Rs 25 lakh price bracket.
Come September 18, Mercedes Benz will officially launch its all-new 2012 Mercedes Benz B-Class in the Indian market, which was first unveiled in July 2012 at the Buddh International Circuit and a day later at Mumbai's Hard Rock Cafe.
The company describes the B-Class as a compact sports tourer, which is actually a big hatchback with decent space and ground clearance. Initially, the model will be imported into India as CBU, but will be later assembled in the countr, starting from 2013. The Mercedes Benz B-Class will be initially offered only with a petrol engine, while its diesel counterpart will follow suit in the coming months.
The German automaker who is currently struggling in the numbers game and rank third in sales volume behind BMW and Audi is missing a volume building car below their executive sedan to go against the compact crossovers like the Audi Q3 and the BMW X1. Now though, the Mercedes Benz B-Class is not a compact crossover and will not compete with its German rivals on the form factor, the upcoming model is expected to fill in the void and occupy the Rs 25 lakh price bracket.
