Indeed the V-Class resembles a commercial van rather than a family car. The eight seats, however, and enormous loading capacity make it the perfect family-orientated cruiser. Being a Mercedes-Benz, you’ll also benefit from the latest driver-assist technology to guarantee solid, dependable performance.
Due to its van-inspired shape, the V-Class has an imposing road presence. The vast body shell exudes premium build quality, while the rigid and boxy frame instils confidence. At the front, the trademark chrome-enhanced grille adds to the modern look, and the swept-back headlights are an eye-catching touch.
The incredibly spacious cabin includes an array of finely-upholstered seats that deliver comfort and legroom in equal measure. The plentiful space can be enjoyed throughout, where the driving seat is raised high to allow supreme visibility and the great sweep of dashboard boasts a generous display of technology. Touchscreens enable seamless control of the integrated functions, allowing you to control climate and ambient lighting with ease. What’s more, the loading space is generous enough to hold a full set of luggage with plenty of room to spare.
Engines and performance
The 2.0-litre diesel engine uses 187bhp to launch the V-Class from 0-62mph in just under ten seconds. The impressive performance is supplemented by 480Nm of torque, which offers plenty of power during sharp acceleration. Meanwhile, the AGILITY SELECT system allows you to adjust the driving style to suit your preference. Eco, Manual, Comfort and Sport are the modes available, with Comfort ensuring optimum ride quality.
Safety and technology
The rigid strength of the V-Class’s frame and raft of preventive systems explain the vehicle’s five-star Euro NCAP rating. The risk of collisions is minimised by the distancing function, which maintains a safe distance between you and the driver in front. What’s more, Attention Assist monitors your concentration while driving. Numerous airbags and ISOFIX anchorages give further peace of mind.
