What tyres should I use on my Mercedes-Benz B-Class?

My current tyres, Dunlop 225/40 R18 are making my Mercedes-Benz B-Class a very hard ride. Is there any other tyres I can try to ease this?

You can't change the tyres without changing the wheels. You can switch to 17-inch alloy wheels with 225/45 R17 tyres, but better to go to 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/55 R16 Michelin Cross Climate tyres. They will transform the ride, steering and road noise of your car in addition to their cold weather benefits.
