Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the new version of the ageing Viano. It’s been thoroughly overhauled since its last iteration and brings with it a handsome, plush and executive new look. The V-Class in XXL format is even more stylish and dynamic. Focal points for 2020 include a re-styled and striking front-end design.
New V-Class is powered by OM 654 four-cylinder diesel engine generation – with the V 300 d reaching the new top value of 176 kW/235 hp – plus safety and assistance systems up to the latest technological level.
A stronger visual presence and broader appearance comes of a new bumper design with striking cooling air inlets and a new diamond structure in the radiator grille. The interior follows the trend of modernity and clarity. The facelifted Mercedes-Benz MPV presents itself with new air vents in a more sporty turbine look as well as new dials in the instrument cluster.
With the facelift, passengers in the first rear row can now enjoy luxury seats with a reclining function, a back massage function and climatisation. Passengers can choose from three different massage intensities and three climatisation stages. A trip in the V-Class – for instance, when used as a VIP shuttle – thus almost turns into a spa treatment after a stressful flight or business meeting. The new upholstery and equipment colour tartufo nappa leather makes a modern and elegant statement.
The V-Class is also available with the intuitive and self-learning MBUX multimedia system.
The V-Class is equipped with the four-cylinder OM 654 diesel engine in three output variants: V 220 d with 120 kW/160 hp and 380 Nm torque, V 250 d with 140 kW/187 hp and 440 Nm torque as well as V 300 d with 176 kW/235 hp and 500 Nm torque. All three engines are refined and improved on noise and vibration characteristics. The power is fed through a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission for the first time. The V-Class has also been offered in a proven and tested turbocharged 2.0L petrol engine belting out 211 Hp and 350 Nm. Power is transmitted by the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with 7 gears providing an optimum drivetrain for great performance.
V-Class offers Active Brake Assist, Driving Assistance Package with Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist and the preventive occupant protection system PRE-SAFE®, the Lane Tracking package comprising Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist, Active Parking Assist with reversing camera and Active Parking Assist with 360° camera, which make searching for a parking space easier.
