Mercedes-Benz has revealed the 2015 B-Class facelift ahead of it’s world premiere at the Paris Motor Show next month.

The facelift gets aggressive front bumpers with wider air dams, restyled headlamps with optional LED lighting, twin chrome slats on the front grille, restyled rear bumpers, chrome number plate garnish, bicolour LED tail lamps and new alloy wheels.

On the inside, the facelift B-Class gets a new 3-spoke steering wheel, bigger 8” infotainment screen, 12 colour choice for ambient lighting and new upholstery.

Mechanically, the B-Class remains identical and will be powered by the same engines which are currently doing the duty. Mercedes is expected to offer the 4MATIC AWD system on the B-Class facelift. In India, the B-Class is available with a 1.6L petrol engine and a 2.1L diesel engine; both are four-cylinder motors.

The only true competitor for the B-Class will be the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, which is still some time away from the Indian market.
