Mercedes B-Class for India
Mercedes has unveiled the B-Class for India in July at Buddh International Circuit. The Sports Tourer would be making its official launch very soon. We expect the prices to hover around the same bracket of 25-30 Lakhs making it the most affordable Mercedes in India, till the A-Class arrives somewhere in 2013.
