Yes, we know that we don’t put the year of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class AMG because we don’t know when it will be hitting the production floor. You have seen the production version of the B-Class on Frankfurt Auto Show and now, time to take the B-Class AMG prototype for a ride. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class AMG covered in black camouflage sheet, but we were able to see the two exhausts at the back. Hmmm… two exhaust, eh? What does the three-pointed automaker have in mind for their mysterious B-Class AMG SUV?
The most noticeable look of the B-Class AMG SUV prototype is the size. That’s right, Mercedes-Benz wants a smaller AMG model because they think it will more practical and definitely able to attract young buyers (we think the “smaller” means more economical or low-cost production).
The expectations over the Mercedes-Benz B-Class AMG SUV are not only about the size, but also other features. The other features refer to AMG’s traditional range of upgrades such as redesigned chassis tuning, an exterior enhancements, and a higher-performance engine. Well, if the main focus is to attract more younger buyers, one thing for sure is the outer look on the B-Class AMG SUV have – more like “must” – to be more hip than the previous generation.
On the performance part, the engine choice for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class AMG SUV lies on the 2.0L turbocharged which able to produce around 324 horsepower and 355 horsepower. To complete the performance is dual-clutch transmission to transfer the power to the all four wheels. Does it sound like Audi RS3 Sportback?
