The all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class (W246) is just rolling out to markets across Europe and Mercedes tuner Brabus already has a basic tuning package prepared. Although BRABUS ECO PowerXtra performance kits for the direct-injection gasoline and diesel engines are still in development, Brabus offers exterior, suspension and interior accessories for the compact MPV.
For the exterior, the starter program consists of a lower spoiler that attaches to the OE front bumper and a rear bumper lower insert panel with two cutouts to accommodate the stainless-steel BRABUS sport rear muffler with four chrome-plated tailpipes.
Ride-height is lowered by 30mm via sport springs which are compatible with the standard shock absorbers. Alloy wheels are available in 17, 18 and 19 inches. In the photos BRABUS is showing their Monoblock F cross-spoke wheels with 'Liquid Titanium' finish which can be seen in the pictures on one side of the vehicle. On the other side there are Monoblock Q wheels with five double spokes. Preferred tires sizes are 225/35 R 19 in front and 255/30 R 19 on the rear. Brabus endorses tires from Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama. Also available for the B-Class are Brabus' Monoblock E and S wheels in size 8.5J x 19.
Brabus interior upgrades include two-tone stainless-steel scuff plates with BRABUS logo, aluminum door lock pins and pedal pads. As with any vehicle coming from Brabus, custom upholstery in any imaginable color is also available as well as a host of multimedia equipment including iPad integrations.
