Mercedes-Benz engineers are approaching the final stages of testing prototypes for a redesigned B-Class minivan.

The car represents just one of eight body styles Mercedes plans for its new-generation compact car family, the first two members of which are the redesigned A-Class hatchback and new A-Class sedan.

Others will include replacements for the CLA, CLA Shooting Brake and GLA, as well as some more new additions such as a GLB SUV and EQA electric car. The first to reach the United States will be the A-Class sedan, which goes on sale here late this year as a 2019 model and with an expected starting price as low as $30,000.

We expect the new B-Class to be revealed late this year or early next. However, don’t expect it to see it in the U.S. this time around. We received the current B-Class in electric guise only but the car was dropped after the 2017 model year to make way, eventually, for the aforementioned EQA.

Despite its stodgy image, the B-Class is a vital model in Mercedes’ portfolio, particularly in Europe where its higher seating position appeals to older buyers, and its spacious cabin to young families.

Underpinning Mercedes’ new-generation compact car family is an updated version of the automaker’s MFA (Modular Front-drive Architecture) platform. Aptly dubbed MFA2, the updated platform brings weight savings plus the capacity for alternative drivetrains. A plug-in hybrid option will join the standard gas and diesel inline-4s that will be offered in the new B-Class.

The MFA2-based cars also benefit from a much more advanced interface. Dubbed MBUX, short for Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the new interface features digital screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, much like on the pricier E-Class and S-Class models. However, there’s also touch capability for the infotainment screen and you’ll also be able to use natural speech to control many vehicle functions.

The B-Class’ only direct rival is BMW’s 2-Series Active. There are, of course, a handful of non-premium alternatives. Examples include the Fiat 500L, Ford B-Max, Opel Meriva and Volkswagen Touran.

Stay tuned for updates as development continues.

Hennessey straps the 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 to the dyno

It's fairly common knowledge that the horsepower figures automakers parade around don't reflect power at the wheels. Rather, it's how much hp the engine makes at the crankshaft. Therefore, we need a dynamometer to measure just how much power is getting to the ground. Thankfully, Hennessey Performance Engineering has one, and it strapped the 2019 Chevrolet...
