Mercedes-Benz Coming to Paris Motor Show With B-Class and More

The 2018 Paris Motor Show next week is an event that some car makers would like to skip, but Mercedes-Benz isn’t one of them. In fact, the company’s all-new B-Class is ready to join its compact car lineup, and the Paris Motor Show is where it will make debut.

The underpinnings of the third-gen B-Class are the same as the newest A-Class. The MPV wants to offer a cleaner motor, more interior space, and some S-Class safety features.

On the inside, there will be the multimedia system MBUX consisting of a pair of widescreen displays where the digital instrument panel and the infotainment system are combined into one bundle. The MBUX will be among the main features offered by the B-Class, and it’s likely to be standard on all trims with various display sizes.

Another model to make debut at the Paris Auto Show is the hot hatchback Mercedes-AMG A35. The car packs a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that churns out 301 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. That output is sent to all wheels via a seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox.

Performance-wise, the AMG A35 can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds. If you continue to step on the gas pedal long enough, it will reach a top speed of 250 km/h. And that’s the maximum speed allowed by the car’s electronic limiter.

We will also meet in Paris the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz GLE, which will come with a refreshed styling, more spacious interior, improved features and new engine options. If that’s not enough, the Mercedes-Benz EQC will also break cover. The battery-electric SUV previews the future that Mercedes-Benz wants to embrace. And of course, we will see the A-Class Sedan making its premiere at the Motor Show as well.
