2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class

2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class

Launched in Munich, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz V-class will be sold in Europe from this spring, and it’s possible that it will eventually be offered in the U.S., too. While the decision on the 2015 V-class has yet to be taken, it is clear that its Vito working-class brother will come to these shores to complement the bigger Sprinter.

The new luxury MPV offers two equipment lines, an Exterior Sports package and an Interior Design package for each line, two wheelbase options, three body lengths from 4985 mm to 5370 mm and a huge range of optional extras, making it perfect for families or luxurious VIP or hotel shuttle.

Under the hood, the V-Class will offer a 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine in three output levels: the V200 CDI with 136PS (134hp) and 330Nm; the V220 CDI with 163PS (161hp) and 380Nm; and the V250 BlueTEC with 190PS (187hp) and 440Nm. The last two versions return an average fuel economy of 5.7l/100km (41.3mpg US / 49.6mpg UK) and 6.0l/100km (39.2mpg US / 47.1mpg UK) respectively.

The interior of the new V-Class features high-quality appointments and reflects the style of Mercedes-Benz passenger car models. It thus very clearly embodies the unmistakable Mercedes-Benz passenger car design philosophy of ‘sensual clarity’. The typical contrasting interplay of organic surfaces and clear lines, along with warm and cool colour tones, conveys an exceptional sense of harmony and serves to underline the high-class feel of the vehicle.

The heated and cooled captain’s chairs are comfortable and supportive, with full electric adjustment, while the adjustable armrests help to give a relaxed feel at the wheel. Visibility from the driver’s seat is good, and there are front and rear parking sensors plus four cameras that give the V-Class driver a 360-degree view of what’s going on around the vehicle…
