It enables the hatchbacks to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 13.8 seconds (14.0 seconds for the B-Class) and hit a top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph).

The new B 220 4MATIC has a turbocharged 2.0-liter (1991cc) four-cylinder engine that develops 184 HP (135 kW). It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).
If you're looking for something more fuel efficient, the B 180 CDI adopts a new 1.5-liter (1461cc) four-cylinder engine that develops 109 HP (80 kW).
