B-CLASS in USA?

About a week ago on MBUSA.com, there was a subsection about the new B-Class or "Vision B", but it's no longer there. Previously, it was accessibly be going under "Future Vehicles". Does anyone know if
Mercedes' plans to introduce the B-Class later this year have changed? Thanks.

The B-Class has nothing to do with Smart. Based on the platform of the new a-class, the B-Class is a Microvan, which will compete with such popular cars as VW Touran, Renault Megane Scenic, Citroen Picasso and Ford Focus C- Max. It will be a car for those people who are willing to pay the money for a C-Class but want a Microvan.

AFAIR Mercedes tried to compete with the tremendously successful VW Golf when they introduced the first A-Class. This did not wor out. Now they are aiming at those who are willing to buy one size larger.

How is this different from a baby station wagon or a hatchback?

Did you see the home page?
Pic of a vehicle marked "Porsche Cayenne for golfspillere"
which presumably means a Cayenne for golfers...

Hi, all - please check google news for the lastest on the B-Class in the USA - they're delaying launch by "several months" because of the weak US dollar

Nothing is the way it is because that's the way it has to be.
