The Mercedes C Class, even after having the lowest price tag as compared to its rival cars, is still unable to attract large number of buyers compared to its competitors, thus much hopes are on Mercedes Benz B Class to ensure better sales for the company and it with its aggressive price points it will definitely do. As of now, in the premium segment this sort of compact and spacious vehicle was need of the hour, which possesses drivability of sedan and space of an MPV with no compromise on compactness. But yes, on the price point front and compact segment it takes on Audi Q3 and BMW X1.
The all new Mercedes B Class is best one up till now as it delivers superb performance compared to its earlier generations across the globe.

To be straightforward this Sporty-looking large hatchback cum compact MPV has no head-on competitor up till now since it is one-of-its-kind vehicle with premium badge in the luxury market.
The challenger for B Class, say in the price points aspect, is BMW X1 that is priced pretty aptly. Starting with the looks both appear a bit similar as both are based on sedan platform, here X1 is not proper SUV but a crossover. Although the stance is a bit elevated of X1, when compared to ‘Sports Tourer’ Mercedes Benz B Class, but when it comes to side profile and rear it confers true competition. The interiors of X1 Crossover promises up market comfort for 5, while the lavish inside of Mercedes Benz B Class is more comfortable and premium comparatively with enough headroom and legroom. Here the on the gadgetry part both fall nearly identical. BMW X1 has got 3 variants in all with 2 diesels and a petrol, on the other hand Mercedes Sports Tourer B Class currently has single petrol motor with two trims, B180 and B180 Sport. Being labeled as Sports Tourer, the vehicle never lets you down in terms of power and performance against slightly high numbers of BMW compact Crossover. The B Class wins all ‘Indian’ hearts as it returns unimaginable fuel economy with its innovative BLUE EFFICIENCY, while at this juncture X1 fails to impress.
