A-grade extras for Benz B-class
MERCEDES-BENZ has added more kit to its B-class range. It has also axed the A-Class and replaced it with an entry 1.7-litre petrol B180. The B180 is $36,990, which is $910 less than the outgoing A180 five-door. The upgrades compensate for the 5 per cent lower import tariff. The B200 and B180 CDI each get more than $9000 of additional value. The added gear includes leather upholstery, 17-inch AMG alloys, CVT transmission and active parking assist, sports package and heated front seats.
