Now we know why Mercedes released pictures of just the ‘inside’ of their new B-Class a few weeks ago. Despite liberal use of the word ‘sport’ in the press release, we can’t imagine many buyers choosing a B-Class for its external appearance or street cred. No, this is a car that’s all about the experience of travelling inside a luxurious and well-designed cabin – a characteristic it borrows from the much maligned R-Class.

The New 2012 Mercedes B-Class will be launched at this year’s Frankfurt motor show on 13 September, in the meantime the company has released a few images of the new model’s interior, which is likely to become its key selling point when it arrives in European dealerships in November 2011.
