With just over 500 B-Class petrol models sold in 10 months since being launched in the Indian market, you wouldn’t say Mercedes-Benz has really got the long-distance luxury travel buzz going just yet.

 

Having said that, a diesel variant of such a travel focused up market vehicle was always going to be on the cards for obvious reasons. Looking to cater to the need of the hour, Mercedes-Benz has just launched its B-Class with a diesel motor at a price of Rs 22.6 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

 

The diesel motor doing duty under the hood of the B180 CDI Style is the same as the one powering the A-Class, C-Class and E-Class models. Featuring a state of tune similar to the A-Class hatch, the 2143cc in-line 4 cylinder oil burner produces 109PS of power and 250Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox that sends power to the front wheels. 

 

The B-Class diesel has a 50 liter tank capacity and an impressive mileage of 18.98 Kmpl which provides great touring capabilities. It is available in four color options: Jupiter Red, Cirrus White, Polar Silver and the new Monolith Grey.
