The perfect vehicle for the whole family.

The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class emphasises the sport in the sports tourer. It has a more dynamic look than its predecessor, is more agile and offers greater comfort at the same time. Its avant-garde interior delivers an unparalleled level of spaciousness and features a dashboard with its own unique, distinctive design. One special aspect is a basic volume that drops towards the occupants and is cut out around the driver and front-seat passenger.


The MBUX is capable of learning and has a groundbreaking and intuitive user interface. Thanks to modern driver assistance systems, the B-Class offers one of the highest levels of active safety in the segment complete with S-Class functionality. Plus, the interior is now more spacious and the engines cleaner and more efficient. The eight-speed dual-clutch transmission celebrates its world premiere.

Mercedes-Benz Cars at the 2018 Mondial de l’Auto Paris: smart forease.

smart celebrates milestone birthday with a new show car.

To mark smart’s 20th birthday, the brand’s new boss, Katrin Adt, who took over at the start of October, unveiled the new smart forease show car to the public. The smart forease is extroverted and presents a straightforward solution for urban mobility. Its driver sits in the open air, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city, its all-electric drive enabling full participation in urban life. The openness and minimalist style of the smart forease pay homage to the groundbreaking smart studies “crossblade” (2001) and “forspeed” (2011).


More new products at the 2018 Mondial de l’Auto Paris.

Also celebrating its world premiere in Paris was the Mercedes-AMG GT 43 4MATIC+ 4-Door Coupé. The performance brand from Affalterbach is thus broadening its sports car line-up with an entry model that is an extremely attractive value proposition. Two further vehicles also enjoyed their show premieres – the new A-Class saloon with a wheelbase of 2,729 millimetres adds a further dimension to the Mercedes-Benz compact family, while the Vision EQ Silver Arrow show car pays homage to the successful W 125 from 1937. The alubeam silver finish is evocative of the historic Silver Arrows, which, for reasons of weight saving, were not painted in their usual white livery.
