The Marco Polo HORIZON in the nature.

The Marco Polo HORIZON: the spontaneous adventurer.

The Marco Polo HORIZON is the discovery for everyone who enjoys the pleasure of sporty and stylish adventure tours.

The Marco Polo series.

The Marco Polo camper vans from Mercedes-Benz are stylish and high-quality companions for leisure activities and camping trips. The shared passion for uncompromising mobility characterizes the long-standing collaboration with the expert partner, Westfalia. The Marco Polo camper vans are exceptionally compact and comfortable. At the same time, the sheer diversity of leisure activities creates a vast range of different requirements that define the Marco Polo's specific design.

That is why the Marco Polo can be discovered in three different variants. The Marco Polo is the most luxurious camper van with a complete living area. The Marco Polo HORIZON is a stylish daily companion for outdoor activity enthusiasts. The third family member, the Marco Polo ACTIVITY, offers maximum flexibility and durability for every adventure. The diversity of the Marco Polo series provides the perfect camper van for everyone.

One for everyone: the new Marco Polo range.

Marco Polo HORIZON – design.

Based on the V-Class, the Marco Polo HORIZON is adopting the incomparable Mercedes-Benz design language expressed by the striking front with the tapered hood and the modern headlights. The interplay between the large, tranquil surfaces and the striking lines is especially impressive. The harmonious and aesthetically pleasing side design perfectly depicts the Marco Polo HORIZON’s superiority. The Marco Polo HORIZON barely resembles a camper van. Instead, it offers the optimum balance between a passenger vehicle and a space miracle while also being suitable for underground parking thanks to its height of less than two meters. Only the Westfalia lettering at the rear and the understated pop-up roof, which elegantly merges into the top of the body, reveal the Marco Polo’s innate desire for adventure.

Marco Polo HORIZON – living.

The Marco Polo HORIZON lets you enjoy exciting adventures in the great outdoors in comfort and style. Standard features in the Marco Polo HORIZON include a three-seater bench in the rear. The variable rail system enables the interior to be configured to match current needs. The high-quality carpet transforms the rear into a comfortable living area. In addition, the Marco Polo HORIZON provides enough storage space to handle various challenges. The drawers underneath the three-seater bench are the ideal storage for everything one wants and needs.

Marco Polo HORIZON – sleeping.

The Marco Polo HORIZON’s pop-up roof can be set up in only a matter of moments, creating space for up to five people to sleep in perfect comfort in the roof bed and on the three-seater bench. Naturally, five people in an enclosed space could quickly become uncomfortable. That is why an auxiliary warm-air heater, electric vent windows and integrated ventilation inserts in the roof bed provide optimum airflow and circulation.

When it is time for an afternoon nap, the opaque curtains and the color glass in the rear comfortably darken the interior. Two flexible LED spotlights are integrated into the roof bed for everyone who enjoys reading in bed.

Marco Polo HORIZON – driving.

The Marco Polo HORIZON is available with three state-of-the-art four-cylinder diesel engines. These engines are distinguished by their high-torque, economic consumption and low noise. The 100 kW and 120 kW variants are equipped with a powerful and efficient 6-speed manual transmission as a standard feature.

The 140 kW variant along with all of the 4MATIC all-wheel drive variants comes with the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with CRUISE CONTROL, start assist, kick-down switch, immobilizer and DYNAMIC SELECT switch. In addition, the Marco Polo HORIZON is also equipped with a comfort suspension to ensure superior driving comfort in nearly every situation. Optionally, the vehicle is also available with AGILITY CONTROL or a sports suspension system.

The Marco Polo shares the V-Classes' efficient motors.

Efficiency as a standard feature.

The Marco Polo HORIZON’s efficient engines fulfill the demanding Euro 6 Gr. I emission standard. As a result, Mercedes-Benz makes responsible contribution to the future. In addition to emission-reducing measures such as an oxidizing catalytic converter and a particulate filter, the vehicle also utilizes BlueTEC technology. This significantly reduces nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines. All of the engines with the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission are also equipped with the BlueEFFICIENCY package. The ECO start/stop function prevents unnecessary emissions by switching off the engine when the vehicle stops in inner city or congested traffic. The fuel efficiency generator also recharges the battery during braking. Furthermore, the vehicle features additional aerodynamics optimizations on the underbody cladding. The BlueEFFICIENCY package is available as an option for all other engine variants.

The attentive and competent companion.

Just like the V-Class, the Marco Polo HORIZON is a ground-breaking vehicle in its class. Its exemplary safety systems are oriented on Mercedes-Benz’s four-level integral safety concept.

Firstly: safe driving. The standard features in the Marco Polo HORIZON include the ATTENTION ASSIST, the Crosswind Assist, the Headlight Assist and tire pressure monitoring. Other innovative safety features such as the DISTRONIC PLUS distance-keeping cruise control, the LED Intelligent Light System, the Headlight Assist, the Lane Keeping Assist, the Traffic Sign Assist along with the 360° camera can also be added as options.

Secondly: preventive protection in the event of danger. Accident prevention technologies are available for the Marco Polo HORIZON. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST helps to prevent rear end collisions and can brake the vehicle in the event of an emergency. The Blind Spot Assist and the Lane Keeping Assist can also protect the driver against unexpected dangers.

Thirdly: optimum protection in an accident. Airbags and thorax-pelvis sidebags along with windowbags for the driver and front passenger ensure optimum protection in the event of an accident. PRE-SAFE can identify critical driving situations and take preemptive measures.

Fourthly: damage control after an accident. If a serious collision still occurs, mechanisms such as the automatic engine shutdown and door unlocking, crash-active emergency lighting and activated hazard lights help to prevent any further damage and consequences.

Multimedia – direct connection.

Today, an innovative vehicle needs to offer more than highly dynamic handling and comfort. Digital information about the vehicle and traffic, a radio and smartphone connection have become important features that need to be harmoniously and intuitively integrated into the cockpit. The Marco Polo HORIZON comes with the Audio 20 USB system. External devices can be connected to the large CENTRAL MEDIA DISPLAY via Bluetooth in order to play back music or show photos. The instrument cluster with color display provides clear feedback which remains easily visible in all lighting conditions.

Optionally, the COMAND Online multimedia system provides an innovative array of interfaces such as the COMAND Controller with touchpad or the LINGUATRONIC voice control system, eliminating the need to waste time tapping tiny icons. Naturally, in honor of its namesake, the Marco Polo HORIZON also features a precision navigation system. COMAND Online receives free map updates for three years. The Garmin® MAP PILOT is available as an option to turn the Audio 20 USB into a fully-fledged navigation system. Using real-time traffic information and topographical 3D map displays, the precise and ergonomic interfaces bring the passengers to their destination safely and with outstanding entertainment.

Mercedes me – intelligent networking.

With its Mercedes me world, Mercedes-Benz creates an impressive and comprehensive package for your mobility. The connectivity options provide tailored services and content which enrich and simplify the users’ lives in addition to ensuring greater safety. Mercedes me connect enhances the interaction and relationship between the driver and Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The Marco Polo features the basic Mercedes me connect services:

In addition, the vehicle can also be located and geographically monitored. Users simply register in the Mercedes me portal and then download the app for iOS or android.

The AMG Line – individual, emotional and sporty.

AMG sports cars have always been emotional, dynamic and, naturally, sporty. For the first time, an AMG Line is now available for Mercedes-Benz leisure vehicles. The progressive and distinctive AMG Line is reflected by exterior features such as the sporty front and rear skirts with chrome loading sill protection, the AMG alloy wheels and the AMG break-away edge with improved aerodynamics. The interior also bears the unmistakable AMG signature. Noble carbon-look trim elements and black roof lining create a cool overall appearance. Brushed aluminum sport pedals and silver-chrome vents give the AMG Line that typical sports car feeling.

On the road, the 17-inch brake system with Mercedes-Benz lettering on the brake calipers and the sports suspension system with rigid damping springs create a dynamic driving experience.

Equipment packages – a sophisticated selection.

The Marco Polo HORIZON is available with a broad range of attractive equipment packages. The anti-theft packet reliably prevents unauthorized access. Acoustic and optical warning signals create an alarm that is impossible to ignore. The alarm siren is independent of the vehicle's electrical system and inaccessible. The comprehensive Driving Assistance package includes all of the most important safety technologies from Mercedes-Benz such as COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, the Blind Spot Assist, the Lane Keeping Assist as well as the PRE-SAFE system. The less extensive Lane Tracking package consists of the Blind Spot Assist and the Lane Keeping Assist.

For precision parkers, the Parking package is available either with the 360° camera for an all-round view or with the reversing camera alone. The dynamic character of the Marco Polo HORIZON can be further enhanced with the Interior design package. Comfort seats in Lugano leather, the steering wheel and gear shift lever in Nappa leather, ebony trim elements and brushed aluminum sport pedals combine to create an impressive presence. The Mirror package enables the mirrors to be folded back using a practical control unit inside the vehicle. In addition, the package also features the useful dimming function.

Optional extras – down to the smallest detail.

Everything the heart desires. Optional extras for greater comfort, safety and variability tailor the Marco Polo HORIZON to individual needs and tastes.

An additional extending awning above the sliding door is also available to enhance the camping experience with the Marco Polo HORIZON. An auxiliary hot air heater (including an optional remote control) helps keep the Marco Polo HORIZON comfortable and warm inside.

Original accessories – customized solutions.

On long journeys it is best to leave nothing to chance. Mercedes-Benz provides customized solutions for the Marco Polo recreational vehicles with original accessories. The 10-twin-spoke or 16-spoke wheels enhance the Marco Polo’s profile. CLASSIC velour and all-weather mats protect the interior against dirt collected while hiking or sand when at the beach. The bicycle carrier for the towing hitch, the portable cooler and the “KIDFIX” child seat round out the exceptional features needed for any journey.
