Mercedes-Benz B-Class Facelift

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched the facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class here in Malaysia. The B-Class was first launched in 2005 and it is just about time for its mid-life facelift, which was unveiled internationally in March this year.

This time around our local B-Class will come with the Active Parking Assist feature which will help you parallel park the car. As you drive along the road at speeds of below 35km/h, the Active Parking Assist will look for a suitable spot by the side of the road using ultrasonic sensors. A message will be shown when a suitable spot has been found.

You can then shift into reverse, confirm that you want the car to help you park, the steering wheel will automatically turn to maneuver the B-Class into the parking space. Acceleration and braking is done by the driver. The parking space only has to be 1.3 meters longer than the B-Class for it to do this, so it may be able to parallel park better than alot of people!

Other changes include minor styling changes on the exterior and interior,. The audio system also supports loading media from a USB-connected MP3 player or thumb drive.

The facelifted Mercedes-Benz B170 costs RM215,888 in Malaysia. Look after the jump for a hi-res gallery of the car.
