Mercedes-Benz MPVs have always been designated with a “V” – from the early Vito and Viano, to the current V-Class People Carrier.
The new V-Class breaks away from the pack and brings sedan styling to the MPV market. Where practicality and utility are prized above aesthetics and appeal, the V-Class has combined all these traits in a seductive package. Its design is simple, yet striking; restrained, yet athletic. Modern and multi-talented, she has maximum high-class appeal and the capability to match her looks.
Riding pretty on sporty wheels, the V-Class is a sight to behold. Her exterior exudes a relaxed assuredness that confirms what is implied: you’re safe with me. Adopting the design of her passenger-car siblings, the V-Class boasts an expressive front-end, with a signature Mercedes-Benz radiator grille and dynamically shaped headlamp. Roof rails give her an adventurous edge and increase her already impressive storage capacity.
The interior is where the V-Class excels. It is versatile, comfortably accommodating six to eight adults, depending on the seating configuration. If storage space is what you’re after, seats can be removed. The V-Class’s interior refinements include a Burmeister sound-system which is standard on the Avantgarde models, three zone climate control, Active Seat Ventilation for driver and co-driver, and various other conveniences.
Versatile, spacious and with a striking design, the V-Class adds another feather to its cap with its impressive technology. An optional 360° camera offers a bird’s eye view of the car and Active Park Assist make parking the V-Class effortless. Optional driver’s aids such as DISTRONIC Plus and Lane-Keeping assist take strain off of the driver.
The V-Class was designed around Mercedes-Benz’s integral safety concept, which comprises four phases: safe driving, preventive protection, on-demand protection, and damage limitation. Through extensive and thorough design and development, the V-Class achieved five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test – the highest possible rating. Features include ATTENTION ASSIST, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, and Crosswind Assist.
