Mercedes Unveils New V-Class

Luxury / Comments

Replacing the Viano, Mercedes' new MPV could make its way to the US.

If you're in the market for a luxury vehicle that can transport a shed load of people then Mercedes believes it has the solution. Replacing the Viano, the 2014 V-Class can accommodate up to eight passengers and has an upscale design borrowed from the C-, E- and S-Class models. A prominent grille, LED-infused headlights, and sculpted bodywork all make for an attractive proposition, while the interior comes swathed in leather upholstery and trimmed with wood.

Individual rear seats, rear center consoles, ambient lighting, metal accents and a freestanding COMAND display are other highlights of the opulent interior. Available in two wheelbases and three lengths, the V-Class also offers three engines – all of them 2.1-liter turbo-diesel four-pots mated to seven-speed auto boxes. The V200 comes with 136 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, the V220 is rated at 163 hp and 280 lb-ft, and the V250 is good for 190 hp and 325 lb-ft. The 2014 Mercedes V-Class will hit European showrooms in March, while there are rumors the new MPV could eventually make it Stateside.
