The new Mercedes-Benz Vito.
Broad range of outstanding features.
Mercedes-Benz is striving to attain a leading position in the mid-size van segment with its new Vito model series. The highly versatile and professional van in the 2.5–3.2 t GVW segment therefore offers a broad range of outstanding features. Its payload is among the highest in its segment, while procurement and operating costs are low. The Vito 116 CDI BlueEfficiency variant with truck registration has a certified fuel consumption of 5.7 litre of diesel per 100 kilometre – a value that is unmatched in this vehicle category. The new Vito is also the first van in the mid-size segment to offer three different drive system variants and incorporates a broad range of innovative safety and assistance systems.
From skilled crafts and trades to retail, service providers, shuttle services and taxis – the new Vito is truly one vehicle for all. The Vito panel van is the only model in its class available in three lengths and with three different drive systems. With up to 1369 kilogramme of cargo capacity, it has the highest payload in its class. Meanwhile the Vito Mixto featuring a crewcab combines the advantages of a panel van with those of a crewbus. The new Vito Tourer sees Mercedes-Benz opening an entirely new chapter in passenger transport. There are three versions available: the functional and rugged Vito Tourer BASE, the versatile Vito Tourer PRO and the premium Vito Tourer SELECT. By virtue of this complete model family, the Tourer can be tailored to accommodate all types of passenger transport.
Synthesis of form and function.
The new Vito creates an assertive and unmistakable impression. For the new Vito, however, design is not an end in itself. With a Cd value of 0.32 wind resistance is very low.
This reduces fuel consumption and improves performance. Even at first glance the new Vito's bodywork exudes high quality, apparent from aspects such as narrow, even joints.
Take a seat and feel good.
Both the driver and passenger are comfortably seated in the new Vito and benefit from more space than before. Now completely redesigned, the new Vito’s cockpit is exemplary in terms of its functionality and ergonomics. Symmetrical in its fundamental form, the structure is clear and uncluttered for maximum operational safety. The cockpit has an exceptionally high-quality look for this vehicle class. During development the stowage concept received plenty of attention. After all, for many drivers the new Vito is their office and a living space too.
The new Vito with front-wheel drive is made for the following profile: predominantly solo operation with maximum payload at low to medium gross vehicle weights. Keeping costs as low as possible is also a priority. In cases where demands on performance are high, use will be intensive, gross vehicle weights are high or trailer towing will be demanding, the right choice is the new Vito with rear-wheel drive and four-cylinder engine with a 2.15-litre displacement. It is available at three power output levels Vito 114 CDI, 100 kW (136 hp); Vito 116 CDI, 120 kW (163 hp), and Vito 119 BlueTEC, 140 kW (190 hp). As the first Euro 6 engine in this class the Vito 119 BlueTEC occupies a special place. Six-speed manual transmissions handle power transmission as standard.
The 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with torque converter is optional for the Vito 114 CDI and Vito 116 CDI and standard equipment on the Vito 119 BlueTEC and the Vito 4x4 with all-wheel drive. For vans it is the world's only automatic transmission with torque converter and seven gears.
