The Mercedes V Class, as a nice car for the whole family, had six seats, a large sliding side door to get on and off more easily, a large tailgate and an interior layout with carpets and fabric seats.
Mercedes V Class was supplied with both diesel and petrol engines in the V 200-280 model range, and in any case the V 220 CDI, the most powerful diesel vehicle in the series, achieved 102 bhp performance, while the V 280, with the petrol engine more vigorous thanks to its 174 hp, was able to reach even 180 km/h. The displacement varied from 1998 cm³ to 2792 cm³.
The production of the Mercedes V Class, available in the Trend, Fashion and Ambiente equipment lines, was terminated in 2003 due to various problems, especially related to electronic components. The successor to the V-Class is the new and more modern Mercedes Viano.
