The Stowage Space package provides a variety of organisational aids. It includes a spectacles compartment in the overhead control panel, a stowage box under the front seats, folding tables on the driver’s and front-passenger seat backrests and a net pocket in the front-passenger footwell.
The Chrome package has selected features which enhance the car’s perceived quality and value in both the exterior and interior.
Shining examples of this on the exterior are the radiator grille trim with three slats in brilliant silver, the side chrome trim, chrome highlights on the bumpers, the daytime running lamps with a chrome surround and the tailpipe trim in polished stainless steel.
The Anti-Theft Protection package combines various items of equipment which help to protect the vehicle from break-ins, theft and unauthorised towing. An alarm sounds in case of unauthorised entry into the vehicle.
The system triggers an alarm if an unauthorised person opens one of the vehicle doors, tailgate or bonnet. The alarm also sounds if the ignition lock is shorted/removed or the foot brake applied. The tow-away protection function responds to a change in the position of the vehicle and can be deactivated – for example, if the car is being towed or loaded onto another vehicle.
The Exclusive package represents a classic interior at a very high level of quality combined with an entire range of exclusive equipment features which are traditionally associated with luxury-class vehicles. Enjoying pride of place in the Exclusive package, the seat upholstery in fine leather is available to suit your taste in the colours lava black, crystal grey or hazelnut brown.
The selected upholstery colours are also to be found on the door centre panels and on the armrest between the front seats (not for hazelnut brown), and in the case of the interior colour crystal grey also on the underside of the dashboard and on the centre console. The dashboard with its chrome trim on the ventilation outlets, controls and shift lever is discreetly coordinated with the chosen interior colour in a tone-in-tone-look. The rest of the interior is colour-matched in lava black with jet black floor mats. The trim is in finely grained brown satin-finish burr walnut wood and is available as an option in refined black high-gloss ash wood trim.
The Load Compartment package includes a height-adjustable load compartment floor, which provides a practical and convenient addition. A folding box provides additional stowage capacity, allows the load compartment to be adjusted to the current load situation at any time and provides more organisation and safety. There is also a socket (12 V) in the load compartment.
The Light and Sight package improves safety and the driver’s perception of traffic conditions, especially in the dark and in poor weather, and enhances the interior’s high-class appeal.
It includes for example safety-related features such as an automatically dimming interior mirror with additional lights, a windscreen wiper with rain sensor and larger washer fluid reservoir, exit and warning lights for the driver’s and front-passenger doors and a warning and background light on the tailgate.
With the memory package the driver’s seat, driver’s head restraint and exterior mirror can be adjusted electrically to any position. The settings can be stored and recalled again at any time. The front-passenger mirror swivels automatically downwards when reverse is engaged (parking position).
In the memory programming, which can recall three individual positions, all seat setting options, such as fore-and-aft position, angle and height of the seats as well as backrest angle and head restraint are included. With the ergonomic switches with intuitive operation the driver can select the best possible seat position using infinitely variable settings for the seat and head restraint. Quick and exact resetting to the previously saved seat and head restraint positions make frequent driver changes much more convenient.
The standard-specification Non-Smoker package replaces the ashtray in the centre console with a 12 V socket and a convenient stowage compartment.
The Night package affords the vehicle an unmistakable air of mystery with a multitude of exterior details in classic high-gloss black. The Night package expands upon the features included in the Sports package and adds to them with other different elements which highlight the vehicle’s unique appearance.
The package includes radiator trim with a 2-slat look in high-gloss black with chrome applications, roof and shoulderline trim strips in high-gloss black, bumpers without chrome highlights and light-alloy wheels with 225/40 R 18 tyres. The sports suspension which is also included makes for direct contact with the road. The heat-insulating dark-tinted glass at the rear and rear side windows keeps prying eyes out. The interior welcomes you with features rich in detail: seats upholstered in ARTICO/fabric, trim sporting a silver lattice pattern, a light switch in high-gloss black complete with a chrome surround and a black roof lining create a unique ambience.
The Smoker package provides a conveniently positioned ashtray and cigarette lighter in the vehicle. The cigarette lighter also serves as a 12V socket. The package takes the place of the front stowage compartment.
The Seat Comfort package improves seat comfort on journeys of all lengths, even longer ones, by providing the seats with more options for ergonomic individualisation and for adjustment to the desired seat position. The package includes height adjustment for the front-passenger seat and seat cushion inclination adjustment for both front seats.
The Mirror package includes electrically folding exterior mirrors. The interior mirror and driver’s side exterior mirror also dim automatically. The exterior mirrors are electrically folded in and out again using a button within easy reach of the driver.
An automatic function can be programmed via the multifunction steering wheel so that the exterior mirrors are folded in automatically when the vehicle is locked. The mirrors fold out again when the vehicle is unlocked and the driver’s door is opened. Both the interior mirror and driver’s-side exterior mirror feature sensors which measure the light intensity on the mirror compared to the ambient light. If a significant difference is detected between the two values, the mirrors are automatically dimmed.
The sports package gives the new B-Class a significantly more dynamic and athletic appearance, and increases its sportiness and agility as well.
This shows in the exclusive equipment features both in the exterior and interior and in technical details such as the sports suspension with lowering function and Direct-Steer system. The sports package promises agility and driving enjoyment even when it’s at a standstill – and delivers them on every journey in versatile style.
The Lane Tracking package assists the driver in arriving safely and stress-free at his destination. It comprises the assistance systems of Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Assist systems. The combination of these systems significantly enhances safety and ride comfort.
Lane Keeping Assist warns the driver if the vehicle begins to leave its lane unintentionally. A series of three vibrations of the steering wheel, imperceptible to the other vehicle occupants, serves as the warning signal. The system can recognise manoeuvres during which drivers leave their lane intentionally - when cutting a corner, for example - and thus does not issue a warning unnecessarily.
