V-Class: the Mercedes among MPVs
The biggest member of the Stuttgart-based passenger car family, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, brings together space for up to eight people and a functional load space concept with the value appeal, comfort and driving pleasure traditionally associated with cars from the brand with the three-pointed star.
For the V-Class, style and value appeal are obligatory. The Mercedes-Benz people carrier boasts looks that reflect the design language of the current passenger car models from the brand with the three-pointed star. This is achieved with a wide range of available colours, upholstery variants and trims to provide a high degree of individualisation; also with the optionally available AVANTGARDE and EXCLUSIVE equipment lines as well as various design packages, including the AMG line.
On-board comfort is provided by pleasant options such as the large panoramic sliding sunroof, the wide centre console with integrated coolbox and the temperature-controlled cup holders with LED illumination or even the discreet ambient lighting which offers three colours and five dimming levels. In addition, first-row passengers in the rear can enjoy luxury seats with reclining function, lumbar massage and climate control.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class can be ordered with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission or 6-speed manual transmission and is powered by the four-cylinder OM 654 diesel engine available in three power brackets, including the top-of-the-range V 300 d with 176 kW (239 hp) and 500 Nm torque (combined fuel consumption 6.1-5.9 l/100 km, combined CO₂-emissions 161-155 g/km)¹. The V-Class is not only dynamic, however; it is also particularly efficient and clean, as well as offering high levels of noise and vibration comfort. In addition, a total of 13 safety and assistance systems provide a reassuring feeling of safety.
¹ The figures shown were obtained in accordance with the prescribed measuring process. They constitute the NEDC CO2 figures pursuant to Art. 2 No. 1 implementing order (EU) 2017/1153. The fuel consumption values were calculated on the basis of these values. Further country-specific information on the vehicles offered, including WLTP values can be found on www.mercedes-benz.com
Marco Polo: travel under the star
Independence and suitability for everyday use are in the DNA of the compact camper and leisure van family from Mercedes-Benz. The Marco Polo, Marco Polo HORIZON and Marco Polo ACTIVITY boast impressive levels of comfort, vehicle dynamics and efficiency thanks to the new OM 654 diesel engine, numerous safety and assistance systems and compact external dimensions under two metres in height.
The Marco Polo on the V-Class base lets you travel in style without having to go without your home comforts. Campers can look forward to an intelligent range of equipment and a modern furniture design concept with wardrobe, under-seat storage boxes and a kitchenette. The electrically operated seat bench in the rear folds into a welcoming bed for an overnight stay. There is another sleeping space under the pop-up roof – which can be equipped with a glass roof on request – in the form of the roof bed.
Off to a business meeting in the morning, then to a mountaineering weekend with friends: the Marco Polo HORIZON on the V-Class base is stylish and functional in equal measure. Quality materials and special equipment such as the AMG line allow for plenty of options for aesthetic individualisation. Multiple different seat configurations with rotatable driver’s and front passenger seats plus a bed in the pop-up roof transform it quickly from an everyday vehicle into a mobile home.
In the Marco Polo ACTIVITY based on the Vito Tourer, no two days are alike. With its generous stowage compartments – equally handy for the family shopping and bulky sports gear – it’s well suited for everyday use and outdoor adventures alike. Sleeping spaces for a spontaneous overnight stay are provided by the seat bench in the rear and the roof bed in the pop-up roof.
X-Class: the versatile pick-up for families and adventurous leisure seekers
With dynamic handling in bends, a comfortable ride over long distances and the dependability adventurous leisure seekers demand, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class also has a high-quality interior, making it both stylish and practical for everyday use, a pick-up for lifestylers and families alike. It combines the classic characteristics of a pick-up with the strengths typical of a Mercedes. The X-Class is robust, resilient and unfazed by off-road terrain. At the same time, it has qualities typical of the passenger car brand – from the design through to comfort, vehicle dynamics and safety. These enable it to meet the requirements of families and leisure-seeking individualists looking for something that goes beyond the everyday.
With its progressive and dynamic design, the X-Class is a stylish eye-catcher with a load bed. It embodies the typical elegant styling of a Mercedes-Benz SUV, making it eminently suitable as a vehicle to represent an individualistic lifestyle. At the same time, it offers considerably more load space for the family shopping, luggage and leisure equipment than a passenger car. Stand-up paddles, mountain bikes – whatever your gear, the load area of the X-Class can carry up to one tonne in weight, plenty to cope with any recreational activity with family or friends. Able to tow up to 3.5 tonnes, it can pull large, heavy loads, e.g. a trailer containing three horses or an eight-metre yacht.
And it moves just as confidently over tough terrain as on the tarmac. The rugged ladder-type frame provides a base for the heaviest cargoes and the toughest of off-road conditions. Closed profiles make for particular strength and torsional stiffness. In addition, the rigid rear axle with its high articulation capability results in improved off-road traction. With engageable or permanent all-wheel drive, standard-fit low-range reduction gear and centre differential lock as well as optional rear-axle locking differential, the X-Class is perfectly prepared for any adventure in the wilds of nature. For example, it easily climbs gradients of up to 45 degrees, fords watercourses up to 60 centimetres deep and can master lateral inclines of almost 50 degrees.
