It looks like the B is not the only current car with no holder. I did an Amazon search and I discovered a Mercedes specific holder. I ordered one and it should be here on wednesday.

Well GlennD, I will keep mine on top of my head until you report back as to utility of this find. Fingers crossed.

Yes, we will see. It was not that expensive and with Amazon's good return policy if it does not work I will return it.

The last time I asked for a return they told me to just keep the item. I think on cheap items the return is not worth it to them. Of course I do buy a lot from Amazon.

You're right - no sunglass holder on the 2017 B250e (the 2017 CLA and the 2014 B-class has it on the mirror). The 2014 also had the flip-down seat pockets that flipped down at the front of the seat that were supposed to be used for that too. I never used any of them because I would probably forget the sunglasses were in there anyway.

I poked around today in the 2017 model, and I'm not sure, but the side door compartment looks different - deeper. There are two deep "pockets" of hard plastic toward the rear of it, and one of them could be useful for sunglasses.

My 2014 leased in January of 2015 had the fold down seat backs, internal sunglass holder and nets. It is certainly they cheapened it later.

My 2014 (totaled) had a sunglasses holder, and my 2016 does as well. I have prescription sunglasses and I use the holder all the time. It's a shame if it's been taken out of the 2017. I wonder if it's part of a trim package.

Well I received the holder with no instructions. It is well made but it will not fit the 2017 B. It kooks like it is designed to fit into some holes that do not exist on the B. I dropped in off at the post office yesterday and I already received credit. Amazon is fast, it looks like credit is issued upon scan.

I wonder what the 2016 parts would cost? I really miss no holder.

Well I looked on eBay. A 2015 CLA looked the same so with shipping and tax it was just over one hundred dollars. Everything looks exactly the same but we will see. It was from a wrecked car.

GlennD,

So it did not fit into the driver side roof handle bar? It seemed like it replaces the relatively useless handle. Too bad.
