We want to note that the halogen lights on the subcompact Mercedes-Benz B-Class 2019 look a bit strange. According to insiders, the official presentation of the German novelty will take place in early 2019.

In fact, there is nothing incomprehensible about the fact that at present, subcompact minivans of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class family are beginning to enjoy less and less demand among motorists around the world. In particular, the fact that an increasing number of people in most cases give their preference to crossovers and SUVs, rather than minivans.

However, despite this trend, the current leadership of the German brand continues to believe that minivans still have a target audience and these cars need to continue to develop. It is for this reason that another German automaker – BMW Company sells the subcompact minivans of the 2nd Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer.

The journalists managed to shoot a test prototype of a new generation of a minivan from Mercedes-Benz – it is noteworthy that this time the car was covered with a smaller amount of camouflage film. Thanks to this, we can disassemble some details of its exterior, and also say that the new B-Class will be more than a little upbeat A-Class.

So, what about the appearance of the German novelty? The front of the car is not as sharp as the hatchback A-Class, and halogen headlights have a slightly different shape than the same A-Class. There is no doubt that the serial version of the subcompact minivan will be offered with the same LED lights as the hatchback, but this option is likely to be available as a separate board.

Looking at the side profile of the car you can see that the roof is higher, and the windows are bigger – you can conclude that there will be more space in the cabin. The rear door seems to be much wider than the A-Class. Unfortunately, so far there are no pictures of the salon of the German novelty, however, what you can see now, tells us that the design of the instrument panel will be largely inherited from the A-Class.
