2012 Mercedes B-Class: prices

We really can not say that the Mercedes B-Class second generation excite anything in terms of its plastic. Clumsy, not original for a penny, she did it for her inside, beautiful on the other hand, it is partly her sister much more sexy, the SLK convertible. But rest assured, the B-Class is a Mercedes and its rates are very stylish. 

To access this car, it will cost at least € 25 200, which is very salty. For that price, more than 95 hp petrol engine as the first generation, but a four-cylinder, still gas, but turbocharged, 1.8-liter, 122 hp, enough to be comfortable on the road. Do not dream, at this rate, the equipment will have nothing to opulent and the list of options will be stratospheric, an old habit of the house. 

It is true that Class B has an important asset in his boot as it is the only proposal of its kind in this segment said pretium. Of course this will not last long but in the meantime, the Star does not hesitate ... diesel side, it will pay at least € 27 400, still, still, you will just one engine 109 hp, which borders on the face of crushing but true.

Audi A2 Concept: official pictures

Plus there is a brand known and recognized, unless we take risks to avoid failure. Because of the status that we acquired, they are indeed much more sensational than the other. Talk to his Audi A2, a small minivan that has a total oven in the early 2000s.

What brand vaccinated? Not at all, since it has to give him another chance, in the same form of mini-legged. However, the A2 goes to the page and is available in electric version for the new decade.

For now, it's just a concept, but one can not be taken in front of his realism! 3.80 meters long and 1.49 meters high, the A2 can not pick just 4 passengers.


Question look, it will hardly be surprised, the latter containing the A2 codes of the firm. It also resembles a big A1, with a silhouette similar (roof arch plunging, inclined bezel ...). The only different is the band of light that goes through the flanks, linking headlights and lights.

The interior architecture is stripped, the dashboard was limited to a wheel with a digital instrumentation and a central screen. Such a design can turn the corner in the series, we highly doubt. Audi has chosen to feature, for example with a flat floor, and clear, with bright colors and the presence of a glass roof electro chrome.

However, we still do not know anything about mechanics. Encode a secret that should be kept to Frankfurt.

Toyota Yaris 3

The most French of Japanese, as made in Valenciennes, sucking will pay dearly for its new and pretty face and the novelty it represents?
