Brabus B-Class (T245)

B as in BRABUS
The exclusive Tuning Program for the new Mercedes B-Class

Powerful engine tuning, elegant and efficient aerodynamic-enhancement components, light-alloy
wheels with 17- and 18-inch diameters, sporty yet comfortable ride height lowering, exclusive
interiors: Right on time for the start of sales of the new Mercedes B-Class BRABUS (Brabus-Allee,
D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet
www.brabus.com) offers an exclusive tuning program covered by the unique BRABUS Tuning
Warranty® of three years up to 100,000 kilometers (see BRABUS warranty conditions as of June

BRABUS offers the world's largest engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles and the
B-Class is no exception. Top priority of all BRABUS engine development is creating a symbiosis of
enormous power, exceptional smoothness, exemplary environmental friendliness and durability
beyond reproach. BRABUS recommends ARAL high-performance lubricants.

BRABUS PowerXtra – the performance tuning for Mercedes common-rail turbodiesel engines, tried
and proven thousands of times – makes the diesel-powered B-Class vehicles even more fun to

The BRABUS PowerXtra performance kit D3 (III) for the B 200 CDI delivers 50 hp / 36.8 kW of
additional power. At the same time peak torque grows from 300 to 350 Nm between 1,600 and
2,600 rpm. With 190 hp / 140 kW the top-of-the-line CDI model of the B-Class accelerates in just
8.4 seconds from 0 – 100 km/h and achieves a new top speed of 215 km/h, up from 201 km/h for
the non-tuned version.

BRABUS also offers engine tuning for the B 180 CDI: With BRABUS PowerXtra performance kit
D2 (III) the maximum power output jumps from 109 hp / 80 kW to 143 hp / 105 kW. Simultaneously
peak torque grows from 250 to 300 Nm. Performance benefits accordingly: The sprint from rest to
100 km/h now takes just 9.9 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 193 km/h.

All BRABUS tuning versions offer more than just excellent performance. Despite much better
numbers the fuel economy remains on the level of the non-tuned production car. The same is also
true for exhaust emissions: Like the production car the BRABUS-tuned B-Class CDI models meet
stringent Euro 4 emission standards.

All BRABUS PowerXtra performance kits are also available for vehicles equipped with diesel
particulate filters.
The BRABUS T1 performance kit for the Mercedes B 200 Turbo is under development.

With or without engine tuning: The BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system with two
chromed tailpipes gives the B-Class a more exclusive appearance. But that's not all: The exhaust
system was calibrated on the test bench and lends all B-Class engines – diesel or gasoline – a
sportier engine sound.

Sporty elegance characterizes the BRABUS body program for the new Mercedes B-Class that
adds visual highlights as well as further optimizes the car's aerodynamic properties. All parts are
manufactured from high-quality Pur-R-Rim to OEM standards.

The BRABUS front spoiler is attached to the lower part of the production bumper and thanks to its
refined shape reduces lift on the front axle. The front apron can be further upgraded with the
addition of BRABUS headlamp sets with fog lights and high beams.

The BRABUS side sills give the B-Class longer, sleeker appearance. But that's not all: The
optionally available LED entrance lights – activated with the keyless-entry remote or by pulling on a
door handle – illuminate the ground next to the vehicle.

Chromed BRABUS moldings for the exterior mirrors emphasize the exclusive visual refinement as
does the striking BRABUS rear apron with custom-tailored cutout for the two chromed tailpipes of
the BRABUS sport rear muffler.

The BRABUS rear spoiler is attached to the tailgate. It combines sporty looks and aerodynamic
efficiency by reducing lift on the rear axle.

Custom-tailored BRABUS light-alloy wheels add even more fascination to the new B-Class and
offer even more agile handling. The BRABUS suspension engineers and test drivers developed
custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations with 17- and 18-inch diameters.

The elegant fully polished five-hole wheels can be mounted at all four corners in sizes 7.25Jx17 or
7.25Jx18. BRABUS technology partners Pirelli and Yokohama provide the optimal tires: The 17-
inch version can be fitted with tires in sizes 215/45 R 17 or 225/45 R 17. The 18-inch wheels are
mounted with low-profile tires in sizes 215/40 R 18 or 225/35 R 18.

For lowering the ride height by some 30 millimeters BRABUS offers sport springs which were
calibrated specifically to be used with the production shocks.

In the automotive world the name BRABUS is synonymous with individualized exclusivity. The
BRABUS interior designers put on their thinking caps to refine the interior of the Mercedes B-

The lineup of fascinating products leaves nothing to be desired: Highly polished stainless-steel sill
plates with illuminated BRABUS logo welcome driver and front passenger. The ergonomically
shaped BRABUS sport steering wheel exudes exclusive ambiance as do an attractive BRABUS
shifter or emergency brake lever. Door-lock pins or foot-pedal pads made from aluminum add
sporty highlights.

Even more extravagant requests are fulfilled by the BRABUS-own upholstery shop. Whether
completing the leather interior available ex-factory or creating an exclusive ambiance in any color
imaginable: The BRABUS specialists transform the interior of the Mercedes B-Class into your very
own salon on wheels – upon request even equipped with a multimedia package.
