Mercedes-Benz will formally unveil the third-generation W247 B-Class at this year’s Paris Motor Show, and has released this teaser of what to expect. The short video focuses quite a bit on the compact MPV’s interior, which has a lot in common with the new A-Class and A-Class Sedan.

The most obvious is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) interface as evident by the dual widescreen displays. This setup is what you’ll find in the new A-Class models as well, and is controlled via vocal commands, steering wheel touch controls, or a touchpad on the centre console.

Other similarities include the design of the air-con vents at the front and the rear seats can be folded down following a 40:20:40 configuration like with the A-Class Sedan. In one of the shots, you’ll notice the dashboard differs a little in look when compared to its other compact siblings.

As for the exterior, a shot of the model’s darkened silhouette indicate a sleeker shape compared to the outgoing W246 model. Similarly, the hexagonal grille and headlamps are more angular, while the taillights appear to be smaller units with a C-shaped lighting signature.

When it goes on sale, the new B-Class will compete against the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, which was given a facelift earlier this year. More information about the B-Class will be revealed when the car debuts in Paris soon.
