New bumpers and tweaked light clusters would be seen on the outside.

Cosmetic changes will focus on the headlights and taillights of the ‘Sports Tourer’. Reports say that new LED headlights and a headlamp cleaning system will find their way to the car, as will slightly redesigned bumpers.

Inside, the B Class would get an updated navigation system and a few other feature enhancements, details of which remain sketchy now. Mechanically, engineers could retune the existing engine lineup for increased economy and reduced emissions, not to mention a four wheel drive variant with Mercedes’s 4MATIC system could also be included.

The B Class for India is imported via the CBU route and is available with two engine options. The petrol variant uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine while the diesel variant gets a 2.2-liter engine. Both engines are paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
