The next generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class will make its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show in September, however photos have been leaked, and we have them.
The all-new B-Class crossover will use a front-wheel drive design and will remain a multi-purpose vehicle, meaning a higher roof and more cargo space.
A full range of four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines will be available for the new model, including start-stop technology for improved fuel economy. Mercedes has also worked hard to preserve the interior space of the current car while retaining traditional characteristics of the German automaker. After its debut, the car will go on sale at the end of 2011, however no official statements have been made regarding B-Class sales in North America.
