The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class has been shown to the large audience at the 84th edition of the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The German marque has decided to take the reinvented V-Class further upmarket and has also made it a more passenger-oriented model. It borrows most of its styling from the facelifted E-Class, as well as from the new generations of the C- and S-Class models. The interior has been entirely redesigned and looks a lot more premium than the soon to be discontinued Viano which the new V-Class will replace in the company’s lineup.
Mercedes-Benz plans on offering the 2014 V-Class in three vehicle lengths, two equipment lines and two wheelbases, while the engine lineup will comprise a 2.1-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel and customers will be able to order the frugal 250 BlueTec version offering 190 HP and 400 Nm which will enable the V-Class to have a fuel consumption of 5.7 liters / 100 km.
