Any idea what type of pricing we'd be looking at?

All that I can find is in Canadian dollars. They are anticipating it to be between the low and mid $30,000.00 range.

Meh... all Mercedeses are beginning to look the same, particularly the MPVs and SUVs. How does this compare to the A-class? They look the same to me.

I like the styling of this thing except for the overdone wheel flares (once again), and it'd be perfect for the crowded urban areas.

How many goofy tall wagons do we need, Mercedes?

Happily, the continual eroding of mercedes continues. FWD 4-banger "premium" SUV?? :lol::lol::lol::lol: Nothing premium about that interior.

Wow, the only thing sadder than the product itself is the stupid name. B200 makes me think of this:

I think it looks great but is a little too low end for a Mercedes. They should give it to Chrysler and have them sell it for around $25,000.

Even worse the Datsun B210, just the most homely car ever.

Its really more a premium B-segment MPV-like a more luxurious version of the Opel/Vauxhall Meriva-so, a tall 5-door crossover hatchback-wagon-MPV. Looks okay, but this is a booming segment guys...

The rare time I call a car ugly (because it's too tall)....on top of that, it's simply inappropriate for the Mercedes badge. It should be a Smart.

Bigger...this fits between the A and C (hence the B name).... A comes before B, B comes before C, etc...

Offer it here with a diesel and a manual and it would make a great commuter car... or a family car for small, upscale families... potential similar market to the Volvo V40, Audi A3 and BMW 1-series... Edited by moltar

Since we're all on Sesame Street here, when can we expect a D, E & F to bridge the gap between the C and the G-wagon?

Well, they already have the E-class... then the S-class. (of course the coupes, sports cars and SUVs are on their own naming schemes (CLK, CLS, CL; SLK, SL; MLK, ML)

Hooboy- mercedes board meetings must be great fun, what with all the employees constantly questioning each other about what alpha-numeric is which car. Hope they have a huge labeled wall of their product line in the conference room.
Easily the most horrible family of names going. WHat the hell is this new Milk truck? Edited by balthazar
