Once accommodated in the driving position we will realize the true technological level of this model. As standard it combines a seven-inch digital instrument panel with a 10.25-inch touch screen. Optionally you can equip a 10.25-inch digital instrumentation to create a double screen system that transmits continuity and fluidity.
The MBUX infotainment system allows access to numerous online digital services. It should also be remembered that it is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with all that this implies. To this we must add USB connections and a wireless charger for compatible mobile phones. In this way we can always be connected.

The list of finishing and upholstery options has increased. Recycled materials find their way into the German minivan. Especially in the upholstery of the seats.

The range of engines of the new Mercedes B-Class 2023
Under the hood there have been some very important changes. The Mercedes B-Class raises its commitment to electrification and welcomes the 48-volt mild hybrid (MHEV) technology. A technology that we can find in all gasoline engines and that, therefore, will make it worthy of the ECO environmental label from the DGT (General Directorate of Traffic) with all the mobility advantages that this entails.
Drivers who do many kilometers a year on the road will continue to have at their disposal an interesting selection of diesel engines. The front-wheel drive is the protagonist, although it is possible to opt for a 4Matic all-wheel drive in the case of gasoline engines. The most efficient and ecological alternative goes through a revamped plug-in hybrid version. A PHEV version that is not only more powerful, but also has a greater autonomy in 100% electric mode.
