Mercedes Benz V-Class Ready To Rock Your 2019
Mercedes Benz V-Class is all set to bring another new edition in the Indian market. However, It is one of the multiple products that Mercedes has lined up for the year 2019.
The model is currently built in Europe and will come to India via the CBU route. This will be the third foray for the brand in the Indian luxury MPV space. This one is after the R-class MPV and older MB100 and MB140 vans.
Design & Features
The latest-gen V-class is restyled over the past years to make the look in with the latest Mercedes design language. Moreover, the new V-class’s cabin is luxuriously appointed with high-quality bits on and around the dashboard, along with the latest iteration of the Mercedes Comand infotainment system. Unlacquered wood and Napa leather provide the cabin with a proper upmarket feel. The V-class shares some of its switchgear and the steering wheel with newer Mercedes models like the C and S-class sedans.
The engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that generates 194hp and 400Nm of torque. The V-class in India will be sold with a single diesel engine option. It’s the latest OM654 motor that also powers the updated C-class and the E-class All Terrain in India. It gets a diesel particulate filter (DPF), a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit and an AdBlue tank. All of these make this motor meet the stricter, cleaner BS-VI emission standard, even while running on regular BS-IV diesel!
Apart from standard safety features, the V-class will also come with Crosswind Assist and a fatigue detecting attention assist system. Expect Mercedes to price the V-class in India in the range of Rs 75-80 lakh.
