The all-new Mercedes-Benz V-Class is redefining the multi-purpose vehicle.
It sets new benchmarks in its segment in terms of design and a host of innovations. The new V-Class combines room for up
to eight people and exemplary functionality combined with high-class appeal, comfort, efficient driving pleasure and
Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Division said
“Functionality is a must for an MPV. Comfort and style are the icing on the cake. The new V-Class combines both in a
way no other vehicle in this segment can offer.”
Emotional, dynamic appearance – size in a new guise
Even at first glance the V-Class is unmistakably a member of the Mercedes-Benz 'family. At the centre of the powerful
front is the upright radiator grille with three-dimensional central star and stylish headlamps, which for the first time
in this segment offer all lighting functions in LED technology in conjunction with the Intelligent Lighting System. The
vehicle’s elongated, taut design lines and the resulting interplay of concave and convex surfaces conveys a sculptural
Top efficiency: six-cylinder performance with four-cylinder fuel consumption
With an output of 140 kW and powerful peak torque of 440 Nm, the V 250 BlueTEC AVANTGARDE’s 2.1-litre four cylinder
engine has as much pulling power and agility as the previous 3-litre V6 turbodiesel engine. In the acceleration phases
‘overtorque’ is available, and provides an additional 10 kW and 40 Nm, resulting in a maximum output of 150 kW and 480
Nm, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds.
With reduced fuel consumption of 6.3L/100 kms (166 g CO2/km), the four-cylinder turbodiesel requires significantly
less fuel than the six-cylinder, while maintaining the same standard of performance. The V 250 BlueTEC engine is also the
first vehicle in the segment to comply with Euro 6 emission standards and is equipped with the 7G-TRONIC PLUS
transmission with DIRECT SELECT lever and DIRECT SELECT shift paddles.

New standard of agility and driving pleasure
To enhance personal driving pleasure, the V-Class is the only vehicle in its segment to offer 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, sport and manual. Engine, accelerator and transmission response are then adapted
accordingly. Ground-breaking features in this category of vehicles also include the AGILITY CONTROL suspension with
selective adjustment of the damping system to the road conditions and the latest generation of ADAPTIVE ESP®, featuring
many assistance functions for optimum driving safety. The light and precise electromechanical power steering likewise
contributes greatly to the well-balanced driving comfort in the new V-Class.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive – exemplary safety
A high level of driving comfort and an exemplary standard of safety are ensured by a total of eleven innovative driver
assistance systems. They are based on state-of-the-art radar, camera and ultrasound sensors, which were introduced in the
new E-Class and S-Class under the name "Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive". Standard equipment includes Crosswind Assist,
ATTENTION ASSIST, Active Parking Assist, Driver Assistance Package which incorporates DISTRONIC PLUS, Blind Spot Assist
and Lane Keeping Assist, and the PRE-SAFE® accident anticipatory system.
Leading the field in aerodynamics and noise comfort
Low drag is crucial to achieving outstanding efficiency. With a Cd figure of 0.31, the V-Class is the most aerodynamic
vehicle in its segment. The level of noise and perceptible vibrations has a major influence on the sense of wellbeing in
a vehicle. The term for this: Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH). The engineers at Mercedes-Benz have worked extensively to
reduce every possible source of noise and vibration, and as a result, thanks to new component concepts and comprehensive
insulation, the V-Class offers its occupants the lowest noise level in the segment. The interior noise level has been
almost halved compared to the preceding model.
Modern style and high-class appeal
The interior of the V-Class offers a completely new experience in the segment. High-quality materials and intricate
details, as well as a progressive design idiom, convey appeal. Lugano leather upholstery is standard across the range,
and the inviting atmosphere is completed with ambient lighting in three colours. Other highlights include the
free-standing central display, the multifunction steering wheel with 12 buttons and DIRECT SELECT lever with steering
wheel shift paddles, as well as the innovative touchpad. The Burmester® surround sound system with 16 high-performance
speakers, including a bass reflex speaker, delivers the perfect listening experience. It provides exceptional surround
sound, and in combination with COMAND Online allows technically supported front-to-rear voice amplification: where
necessary to improve communication, a microphone in the overhead control panel transmits conversation between the driver
and front passenger to the rear loudspeakers so that the passengers sitting further away can also hear them.
A new dimension in comfort
The V-Class also sets new standards in comfort and variability with a host of innovations. The Mercedes-Benz V-Class
is the only vehicle in the segment to offer 4-way lumbar support and active seat ventilation with reversing fans to
ensure a consistent relative humidity at the contact area with the leather seat for driver and front passenger. Also
unique in this class of vehicles is the enhanced THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control system which offers various
ventilation modes to and individualised climate control. The FOCUS, MEDIUM and DIFFUSE climate modes have distinct
settings for air flow and distribution. In addition, the THERMOTRONIC system features automatic pre-entry climate control
at the touch of a button on the vehicle key, an integral demisting sensor and distribution of cooled air to the driver
and front passenger sides, the intensity of which is automatically controlled by the position of the sun. Equally unique
is the tunnel detection feature with self-activating air recirculation. The climate control system uses the map
information from the navigation system and the GPS location data to close the air recirculation flap automatically when
the vehicle enters a tunnel, subsequently re-opening it when the vehicle emerges from the tunnel.
Separately opening rear window and second loading level
For easy loading and unloading, the V-Class features another first in this segment in the shape of the separately
opening rear windscreen attached to the upper tailgate frame. It can be opened and closed independently of the tailgate.
This makes loading and unloading easier in two respects: on the one hand, it allows a second loading level; on the other
– particularly in tight parking spaces – there is no need to open the large tailgate. The corresponding load-compartment
organiser is easy to install and remove. It can bear up to 50 kilogrammes and has two recesses, each of which holds a
removable and collapsible shopping basket. In addition, the EASY-PACK tailgate, with convenient power opening and closing
comes as standard.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class goes on sale in July 2015.
