There’s one thing that bothers me with the B-Class, and that’s Mercedes-Benz punting it as a pukka rival to conventional hatcbacks a la Golf and A3. After the recent launch in Durban I have very few reservations about the all-new W246 B-Class, which makes a lot of sense, considering that Mercedes-Benz is primarily targeting a younger audience. I’m young, and I like it, but the new B-Class deserves credit for being what it really is – different.
Which of the current Volkswagen R models would get your vote?
