Revealed at the Munich Olympics complex, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is a surprisingly athletic piece of sophisticated German engineering. Replacing the less-than-popular Viano, the V-Class brings an unprecedented level of luxury to the MPV.
Although it retains the 2.1 litre 190BHP diesel from the Viano, the V-Class has a sleeker profile and the LED running lights and headlights, two-louvered grill and large badge characteristic of the new Mercedes range. A 5.37m wheelbase, 324lb ft of torque, multifunction steering wheel and 7G-Tronic gearbox are just a few of the features that a driver might benefit from – but this car is really all about the 8 passengers it can accommodate with ease, which makes Mercedes V Class the perfect choice for Signature chauffeur-drive hire fleet.
The interior is furnished with high-quality nappa leather, which in particular adorns comfortable seats that provide four-way lumbar support, as well as heating and cooling options. Seats can be configured as passengers wish – you could, for example, have a meeting with the two-two-two configuration that allows passengers to face each other in the back, or take the whole family with the two-three-three configuration. However the seats are configured, there’s more than enough legroom for passengers and boot space for luggage thanks to that extended wheelbase.
With other features such as climate control and surround-sound, this is looking like the MPV of choice for those who want a large number of passengers to travel in the kind of luxury and security that Mercedes is famed for. The V-Class won’t be released until 2015 – watch this space for more vehicle details and that all-important date when you can book this luxurious vehicle for chauffeur-drive hire. If you can’t wait until 2015 then our current fleet of Mercedes Vianos are ideal for multi purpose ground transportation.
