Mercedes-Benz is redefining the Multi- Purpose Vehicle (MPV) segment with the new V-Class, setting new benchmarks in its segment with its design and host of innovations.
With space for up to eight people, high-class appeal, comfort and efficient driving enjoyment this youngest and largest member of the
Mercedes family is perfect for those who appreciates boundless space, style and comfort. With the three equipment lines: V-Class Standard, V-Class BlueTEC and V-Class BlueTEC AVANTGARDE, an Exterior Sports package and an Interior Design package, the new MPV can be individualised to suit any taste and requirement.
NOT JUST A FANCY VAN
The innovative driver assistance systems are based on state-of-the-art radar, camera and ultrasound sensors, under the name “Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive”.
Standard equipment includes Crosswind Assist which helps to stabilise the V-Class in strong crosswinds, and ATTENTION ASSIST which warns the driver of inattention and drowsiness. Active Parking Assist is a standard, which makes parking of the new MPV as easy and convenient as parking a compact car.
Further optional features are available, i.e. 360° camera, cruise control with COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, etc. To further enhance safety, the PRE-SAFE® system is available as standard on certain models, while it is an optional extra for the rest of the derivatives. When an accident threatens, PRE-SAFE® initiates protective measures to ensure that the belts and airbags offer optimum protection during a collision.
To enhance personal driving pleasure, the V-Class offers the AGILITY SELECT function in conjunction with the automatic transmission. At the push of a button the driver can select from four driving modes: economical, comfortable, sporty and manual. The AGILITY CONTROL suspension with selective adjustment of the damping system to the road conditions and the latest generation of ADAPTIVE ESP® is a groundbreaking feature.
