    <b>I am considering the Mercedes B Class for ease of access and on doing a bit of research I have seen mention of a sliding rear seats becoming available. As our wheelchair wont fit in flat by about two inches I wondered if anyone has any information or experience about this.Our dealer doesn’t seem to know about sliding rear seats or anything about the lightweight wheel chairs now being offered with new leases for the duration of the lease.If any one has one I would like to know the folded dimensions,</b>

    Show your dealer this link about the wheelchair option;

    We’re picking our B Class up tomorrow, as far as I’m aware it doesn’t have sliding rear seats but I’ll ask my dealer if he knows when they’re supposed to be starting fitting them.

    Thanks for that, I will be interested to see if they know anything. Who is your dealer? I gather no info on this wheelchair then. I will spend a bit of time phoning round today to see what I can find out, What model and spec have you gone for?

    We’re getting a B180 Sport Premium auto in white.

    It’s from Stratstone in Huddersfield.

    I‘ve had a look at the configurator but cannot find sliding rear seats anywhere.

    According to Auto Express the sliding rear seats aren’t due until sometime this year (does anything arrive ate the due time?)

    My X1, 18d SE has sliding rear seats (67 plate) but I believe that this is now an option.

     

    ? I will be remembered for nothing but had great fun doing it?

    Wardy just curious as to who your salesman was at Stratstone Huddersfield? I’ve been there myself and wasn’t happy with my experience.

    Muhammed, it was Josh Ineson and he’s been great with us so far. Apart from the delay, which is beyond his control I can’t fault the service to date.

    When I went into the dealership I was waiting for around 20 mins and no one approached us I had to then tell someone that i’ve come to see ‘Craig.’ Following that he took over 15 mins jut to arrive then didn’t seem to know much about Motability.. Just my luck i guess

    I don’t think they have a motabilty specialist, just whoever is available.

    I think perhaps Mercedes dealers are why BMW is so successful, went to look at a Merc twice now,  they seem to have no stock of the bread and butter models which are the ones on mobility and offer you a seat in an old shape.

    Depends where you are Stuart. I test drove one at Mercedes Stourbridge. It was the B200d and its now up for sale.

    Hi I currently have a b class 180 2016 model and that has rear sliding seats so you would definitely think the new model would have this feature also.

    The sport certainly doesn’t look sporty.

    For anyone thinking of ordering the B class the sliding rear seats will be available as standard from December production. There are a few other things changed too. I have noticed the wireless charging and augmented reality navigation are now included on Premium and Premium Plus. Previously they were optional at a cost.
    I am a bit peeed off cos my Premium Plus is due for delivery soon and would have liked the enhanced navigation but couldn’t justify the extra £495
