The Mercedes-Benz Viano will be officially axed in the first part of next year since the German marque is preparing to bring back to life the V-Class nameplate. These are the first images showing the interior of the new model which will also try to attract customers who were previously interested in acquiring the now defunct R-Class. The V-Class will allegedly be unveiled in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale a few weeks later from the Swiss auto show. The car has the W447 codename and it’s the first V-Class in approximately 10 years.
As you can easily notice from these images, the vehicle will be a lot more premium than the outgoing Viano and is said to receive a more posh version entitled Vito. In these pics we get to see Mercedes-Benz used a lot of wood and metallic inserts, premium chocolate-like upholstery and a self-standing touchscreen display.
