2020 Mercedes V-Class Redesign – VIP Passenger Vans
Highly prized by major hotels, business owners and airport shuttles, the large 2020 Mercedes V-Class MPV gets a boost five years after its launch.
The Mercedes V Class escapes the customer’s disaffection for large minivans. Since its launch in 2014, it has attracted 209,000 cars around the world and its success continues. If the Class V is popular, it is primarily because, in addition to meeting a need, he is almost alone in his niche.
Thus this XXL minivan is a hot day for large families but also large hotels and airport shuttles that wish to travel their VIP clientele in optimal comfort conditions. Many business owners, for whom the car is a second office, have also succumbed to the benefits of the V-Class.
2020 Mercedes V-Class Interior & Equipment
Wellborn, the big minivan Mercedes did not take a ride five years after its appearance. Also, the stylists have limited themselves to redraw the front bumper which now incorporates a large air intake and to review the grille. The interior is inspired even more by the sedans of the brand.
The turbine-shaped aerators come from the latest productions of the firm to the star. This is also the case of the upholstery and ergonomics that have nothing to envy to the sedans of the German manufacturer. The atmosphere is eminently luxurious. With this refurbishment operation, comfort has been the focus of attention. Equipped as standard with four individual seats in two rows, the 2020 Mercedes V-Class can be fitted with optional “first class” seats that will not deteriorate in an S-Class. They are enriched with a full-tilt function, a function massage, and air conditioning.
By drawing from the catalog of options, the V-Class can adopt different configurations. This is how it can be transformed into a rolling office by installing a folding table between the individual seats. Likewise, a two-seater bench with two-piece fold-down back is available, not to mention a three-seater bench with two-piece seat cushion and three-piece backrest.
In the field of equipment, the V-Class is also close to the world of sedans and SUV of the brand. For the first time, the large Mercedes MPV has access to autonomous emergency braking (Active Brake Assist) and adaptive lights (Highbeam Assist Plus), a system that allows switching the high beam in the low beam when the situation requires it.
2020 Mercedes V-Class Engine Specs
Finally, V-Class receives a new 4-cylinder 2-liter turbo diesel engine. It comes in two power levels: 190 (V 250d) and 239 horsepower (V 300d). These two engines are now associated with the 9-speed automatic transmission. The 239 hp version has access to hitherto unknown performances on the segment. It reaches 100 km / h in 7.9 seconds and allows a top speed of 220 km/h on German motorways.
Both versions can be combined with the 4Matic all-wheel drive. In two-wheel drive, the consumption is announced at 5.9 l / 100 km, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 154 g / km. The first deliveries of this revised and revised Class V will begin next June. At the end of the year, the entry-level version V 220d with a manual gearbox will be introduced. The year 2020 will finally see the arrival of a fully electric version of the V-Class. Its concept will be presented next month as part of the Geneva Motor Show.
