In this comparison, it is the Mercedes that has by 9 % horsepower more in comparison to the Mazda Premacy I, which makes this car a bit faster. Thanks to more horsepower the Mercedes B-Class W245 should as well give slightly more flexiblility in specific gears.
The fuel economy is distinctly to Mercedes B-Class W245's advantage. This car burns 2.6 l less diesel in the mixed cycle in relation to the Mazda Premacy I. It is also worth to know that average fuel consumption in the mixed cycle for the minivan segment, in which the Mercedes B-Class W245 is classified, is 6.5 l while the Mercedes B-Class W245 180 CDI 109HP manual consumes by 14 % less fuel than the average.

The difference in this category between compared vehicles is quite big, so remember that in order to the the comparison have a sense, you should select models of similar parameters.
The top velocity possible to be reached by the Mercedes B-Class W245 is greater as compared to this of the Mazda Premacy I which allows to drive the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference that amounts to 8 km/h is little and is imperceptible in everyday use.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room and stability of driving. The Mercedes is 68 mm wider in relation to the Mazda Premacy I. It is often clearly perceptible by those sitting in front, who have more room for their elbows.

Mercedes B-Class W245 has 105 millimeters longer wheelbase distance when compared to Mazda Premacy I 1.8 100HP manual. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Mercedes should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Number of gears
The Mercedes B-Class W245 has only one additional
gear in comparison to the
Mazda Premacy I. Generally this
extra gear is used as an overdrive thanks to which the previous

lower speeds. One more speed also helps
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
The Mercedes B-Class W245 has by 151 cubic centimeters greater engine capacity than the Mazda Premacy I. This play a little role when it comes to accleration, as both values are quite simmilar.
Model release date
Production of the older vehicle commenced much more earlier than Mazda Premacy I hence it is reasonable to suppose that this car features not so advanced solutions .
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater possibility of carrying big amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 2 percent to the advantage of the Mercedes B-Class W245 is small and does not matter much.
