    Hi all,

    The new B class has been on the scheme for quite a while now & as you all must know its not suitable for under 25’s. Well thats what it says on the Motability site anyway. The old B class was suitable for under 25’s. I have just been on the Thatcham site and checked the ABI for the new B class and it is showing as insurance group 16E. It is the B180d AMG Line 5dr. On the Motability site its showing as ABI group 19. I am really confused as it should be 16. I am going to call Motability in the morning to clarify.

    If anyone has any information please comment.

    Which Mobility Car


    We have also checked and the insurance group is 16 as you say, we are aware of Motability lowering thatcham insurance groups to make cars available to u25’s as with the Ford Focus, but not raise them, this must be an oversight. Keep us informed here as to the conversation you have with Motability.

    I believe it’s the same with the A Class. The ABI is higher on the Motability site.

    I’ve been calling Motability all day as it depends on who you speak to as some are not helpful. Anyway a lot of the advisers are also very confused as to why it says 19 when on the Thacham site it says 16. They are going to investigate and let me know weather that’s a mistake or not. Let’s hope it is.

    Hi all,

    I had a call from Motability today regarding the B Class. The advisor said that I was correct regarding the ABI and that the account manager has said that it is actually 16. They said they are just going to speak to Mercedes and get the correct ABI on the Motability website but it’s going to take maybe a few days to update. She also said that I can now order the B Class and it will be accepted. So anyone under 25 interested in the B Class you can now order it. Well the B180 1.5 diesel AMG Line.

    Excellent work in finding this error. The only downside is the high advanced payment of £1900. Nevertheless, it’s one more car for under 25!
