Mercedes Benz B-Class: Safe Car for Moms

I was introduced to the all new gleaming Mercedes Benz B-Class family car! I attended an intimate event with fellow mommy bloggers to learn more about it.

The new Mercedes Benz B-Class hopes to be the ideal starter family car for young couples. Since its debut 14 years ago, the new B-Class has evolved into one of the German luxury car brand’s best-selling vehicles – thanks to its huge interior space, class-leading technologies, safety features and overall functionality. 

“The new B-Class is the perfect mom-mobile for today’s modern mom.  It is easy and comfortable to drive, offers a huge amount of space for passengers and their load, and comes with class-leading safety features and world-class technology.  It has everything every starter family would want in a reliable vehicle,” said Joseph Ayllon, assistant vice president for public relations, Auto Nation Group.

Dubbed as a small multi-purpose vehicle, one of the main highlights of the new B-Class is its spacious interior and cabin. Traditionally, the B-Class is the ideal family car because of its emphasis on space, comfort and safety yet sporting a compact vehicle profile — revolutionizing interior design while retaining cargo space. 

The new B-Class has a through-loading capability for longer luggage, thanks to its 40-40-20 lay-fold rear seats capability. Whether its dad’s golf bags, mom’s luggage, or the baby stroller, the new B-Class offers no compromise on space.

It’s also equipped with an extended Active Brake Assist as a standard. Depending on the situation, it can effectively help to mitigate the consequences of rear-end collisions by applying braking when the vehicle detects slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles ahead – even with crossing pedestrians and cyclists. If the driver fails to respond, Active Brake Assist can go one step further and brake autonomously if the danger of collision persists, so as to mitigate the severity of the accident or in the best case even prevent it.

Attention Assist with adjustable sensitivity, which can warn the driver in a timely manner of inattentiveness and drowsiness, is also included as standard. To add to one’s peace of mind, the vehicle comes equipped with airbags for driver and front passenger, including windowbags and kneebag for the driver, and ISOFIX child-seat mounts and TopTether attachment points in the rear backrest, plus a host of other safety features.

The state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is also found in the all-new B-Class, revolutionizing a new era in automotive connectivity. At the heart of the MBUX system is a highly intelligent virtual assistant, which is activated by pressing a button in the steering wheel or by simply saying, “Hey Mercedes”.  It caters to voice commands to attend to infotainment functions such as destination input, phone call, music selection, climate control, and ambient lighting. MBUX comes with a natural speech recognition program that helps it to recognize and understand nearly all sentences from the fields of multimedia and vehicle operation.

Inside, the new B-Class showcases a wide screen display, which serves as the instrument cluster and the infotainment system powered by MBUX. The five round air vents feature a high-grade turbine look with finely styled air ducts, inspired by the world of aviation. Its Artico-leather-made seat offers excellent ergonomics and a high degree of comfort even on longer journeys. 

Jeanette Ipapo-Tuason, entrepreneur and mother of five, shared her ideas on how to make family road trips safe and enjoyable.  

The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is priced at PHP 2.690 Million Pesos.
