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.

That bottom one...I did a double take....the rear looks like a Grand Cherokee grafted on....is it based on it?

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
