Mercedes-Benz B-Class B200 Progressive (A) Review

Cheaper but certainly more comfortable, the Mercedes B200 Progressive is definitely the right variant to buy.

Amazing vehicle for families  Posted on 26 Aug 2022

Insane amount of space in the front and rear. Perfect for families!

The headroom and legroom gives an illusion/or not that the car is really huge and comfortable for the passenger.

The car drives like a small hatchback despite it being bigger than small SUVs in the market... But with all the room in the world.

DCT is something you have to get used To.

Never regret changing the Subaru to this. Thank Mindy and Terrence from C&C been so nice for the service and after sale service.

Great vehicle for family. Not to underestimate the 1.3L turbo charged engine. Suffice for daily usage. Great experience with the enhanced interiors and MBUX system. Acceleration might not be the smoothest of many cars, but yet it still packs a punch.

Roomy and spacious for adults as well. So far driving well.

Have own the B180 for 2 months. The 200Nm torque is sufficient for daily commute with 2 adults and 2 kids. Addition of 1 adult is ok too. With the addition of turbo, good for overtaking most cars.

Fuel consumption is considered good. Ave of 6.2L/100km at a mileage of 1500km now. Single trip from East to West, was able to clock 4.8L/100km with smooth traffic. This is comparable to my previous honda vezel which typically run at at ave 5.8L/100km throughout the 150,000km mileage (5.5 years). Not to mention the B180 is a better build and heavier than Vezel.

Interior is futuristic and minimalistic. Kids love the lightings. Cabin room is spacious and the adjustable rear seats add more flexibility to the car's purpose.

Driver has a wide angle view. The design of the A beam pillar did not hinder my blind spot in front. Seat can be adjusted high which is good for people with long legs like me, making the seating position like a CUV or SUV. Rear blind spot is easy to check with a good C pillar design. Thou i prefer to have blind spot assist install which give better assurance and it has already been a standard features in all Jap and Korean cars, but not in the Mercedes that C&C bring in.

Good for touring. The G force when turning at high speed sits somewhere in between a saloon and SUV which is manageable. At the red light, pick up is kinda slow unless turbo kicks in. Up gear changing is smooth and hardly noticeable. However, I experience some minor jerks during down gear from 2 to 1, which makes me feel like driving a manual car sometimes. Still monitoring this.

Sound proofing is average, after sitting in an opel astra! But it's a lot more better than my previous ride.

Overall this is still a great family car.

What I like
Low road tax
Low Fuel consumption
Keyless entry (especially hand free car boot)
Good cabin space
Adjustable rear seats
USB-C type charging
Interior design
Crystal Clear HD digital Infotainment/Driving Cluster display
Mercedes Me app (able to check if my windows and doors are locked. I could also lock/unlock them via my phone. Valet parking function etc.)

What I do not like
Loud engine
Average soundproofing
2021 version do not have any Sat. Map navigation installed, hence the MBUX full experience is missing.
Lack of standard safety features in base model (e.g. blind spot assist, lane keeping assist)
Missing features of the Mercedes app not available SG and subscription is free for 1st 3 yrs.

What I like
Height & Depth for a small car is good for my 1.82m height. No trouble getting in & out.
Interior is OK for nice simple features for this model
Fuel economy
Comfort seat
Good cabin

What I do not like
No spare tire
Slow pick-up
No keyless entry
No tailgate assist

Review
Driving the B200 AMG Line for 2 months now. Comfort and space is the priority for someone looking at this car, although it did exceed expectations this time by providing good handling not known to the B class before this model. With the AMG Line and lowered suspension, it does corner rather well compared to the previous model.

Exterior look is better looking provided you go for the AMG Line, else the progessive model looks rather dull compared with the A class. Interior is excellent for this new model, same as other compact series of the Merc family. Do not underestimate this 1.33l engine, it can be compared with other 1.4t, 1.5t, 1.6t and 2l (not turbo) engine for performance. Of course not performance based but you are paying less road tax than those performance cars too. Overall, a great improvement over previous model. If you want space yet no need 7-seater (which a GLB makes more sense), then this car is for you.

What I like
- Comfortable ride for family
- Handling and cornering has greatly improved over previous model
- Exterior looks is younger this time (with AMG Line)
- Interior design blows all competitors away. It is a mini disco!
- Great factory sound system
- Prices has increased due to current COE situations
- Paying lesser road tax for great performance over current engine

What I do not like
- MBUX still has some bugs around
- Less safety features than a lot of Korean models
- NO REAR AIRCON! How can this be for a merc! B class is barely acceptable! I cannot imagine GLB without a rear aircon! COme on C&C.
- MBUX "Hey Mercedes" function sucks!
- Fake engine sounds do not make the engine sounds better.
