Unlike some of its competitors, there’s no 7-seat option for the B-Class – but what you do get is acres of room for 5 people. The elevated seating position in the front lifts you away from the centre console, emphasising the feeling of space in the cabin. It’s similar in the back, with room even for taller adults to get comfortable.
There’s also plenty of room in the boot. On the petrol and diesel models, you’ll get 440 litres of space with the rear seats in place – enough for a large pram or several large suitcases – although the plug-in hybrid is slightly smaller at 405 litres. On all models, the rear seats can be slid back and forth to increase boot space or rear legroom accordingly. They can also be reclined for extra comfort, or folded down completely in a handy 40/20/40 split.
