With the launch of the A-Class, Mercedes' so-called “Sports Tourer” is making a final lap in Canada. Aside from its 208-horsepower turbocharged engine and available all-wheel drive system, the main draw of the B-Class has always been its spacious and practical interior resulting from a tall profile and fairly upright rear hatch. Folding the rear seats increases cargo capacity to more than 1500 litres. A Storage Package adds even more convenience for users.
