2012 Mercedes B-Class Spied With Less Disguise

Here are the latest and most revealing spy photos of the next-generation 2012 Mercedes B-Class. For the first time we get to see the front grille and rear lights, that seem to follow a similar design found on the new E-Class. The front bumper still wears a disguise, but the rear one has lost most of it.

The next B-Class will be built on a new front-wheel drive platform with a conventional unibody frame. The platform will also be used for the next A-Class, with power plants coming from Renault as well as in house engines for the upper range units. Both 6-speed manual and dual-clutch gearboxes will be available with stop/start technology.

In addition to petrol and diesel engines, the next-generation B-Class will be introduced later as a plug-in hybrid (E-Cell Plus), an all-electric (E-Cell) and a fuel cell (F-Cell) variant.

New B-Class will offer more interior room thanks to lower floor, and in addition to five-door hatchback, the line-up will will expand to a saloon, coupe, and crossover variants.

We are expecting the new B-Class to make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
