Reference and simplify presentation[edit]

Almost 50 images are not needed to define this category of cars. There already exit links to numerous models. Moreover, this article is not to be a complete list (past and present), every body style, etc. marketed in this category. Furthermore, it will be very difficult to keep the images up-to-date with the years of production in their descriptions. The flags do not represent the typical automobile firm's global supply chains. Cars made in one country end up being marketed in numerous international markets. Therefore, the national flags are superfluous. Thanks, CZmarlin (talk) 16:56, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Merge with subcompact and supermini[edit]

The article states that B-segment "is equivalent to the subcompact category in the United States and the Supermini category in Great Britain". Why then are there three articles? If they are regional variations of the same thing then, per WP:WORLDVIEW they should be merged. --Cornellier (talk) 11:44, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

I agree with merging the three, although I am not sure which is the best article name to merge the others into (*cue cultural wars between the brits, yanks and Euros!*) Cheers, 1292simon (talk) 21:20, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
I would hesitate to merge them all. While subcompact, supermini, and B-segment have roughly the same meaning, there is no single term which can group them all together. Each article does a good job of keeping within its region of usage, i.e. North America, UK, and (rest of) Europe, respectively. Also, there's the precedent of other size classes having separate articles, like compact car and C-segment, and mid-size car and D-segment. City car was merged into A-segment, but there are hardly any in North America anyway. Car classification has a good table which compares them all.
Given that most other UK/GB car classes are merged with other articles, I would possibly consider merging supermini into either B-segment, or subcompact (like how large MPV was merged into minivan). --Vossanova o< 23:13, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
