The most distinctive contributions to the expressive front design are made by the dynamic radiator trim and the striking front bumper as well as the headlamps with their high-quality design. On request, the new Night Package sets further individual accents, for example with exterior mirrors finished in black and black accents in the radiator trim and bumpers.
The lines of the side design rising towards the rear as well as the large, striking wheel arches and attractive light-alloy wheels up to 48.3 cenimetres (19 inches) in size lend the V-Class a sporty side view. This impression is enhanced by the new, optional Night Package.

The name MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience – for the new infotainment system signifies that the user experience (UX) has first priority. A unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. MBUX is individualisable and adapts to suit the user. It thus creates an emotional connection between the vehicle and driver.
Variable and simple loading and unloading of the new V-Class is made possible by means of the familiar, optional separately opening rear window, load space divider and the electric EASY-PACK tailgate – a true gain in comfort, be it for use as a shuttle, for a trip to the supermarket with the family or when transporting bulky sports equipment.
As part of the facelift, rear passengers can enjoy a special comfort feature. Optionally available luxury seats for the first rear row pamper occupants with reclining and back massage functions as well as air conditioning, as in the S-Class. A journey in the new V-Class – for instance if used as a VIP shuttle – thus turns into a spa-like treatment.
Up to eight people plus luggage – the V-Class is the best way to transport both. If a particularly large amount of load space is required, the seats can also be completely removed. Thanks to a maximum load compartment length of 2.88 metres in the extra long wheelbase variant (long: 2.65 metres, compact: 2.41 metres), even bulky items can be transported. If the rear seats are completely removed, the vehicle provides up to 5,010 litres (long: 4,630 litres, compact: 4,200 litres) for luggage and leisure equipment.
The two rear rows of seats in the V-Class can be fitted with various combinations of individual seats as well as 2- or 3-seater bench seats. Four comfortable individual seats are installed as standard in the rear. Two 3-seater benches in the compact vehicle length turn the V-Class into an 8-seater on request. Practical details, such as the guide rail system which enables benches and seats to be moved in the longitudinal direction, or face-to-face positioning, allow exacting individual comfort preferences to be accommodated.
Whether comfort-oriented or sporty, the 9-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission manages both modes masterfully. The 9 finely graduated gears keep engine speed, noise and consumption low. Using the DYNAMIC SELECT switch drivers can influence gearshifting style by choosing one of the drive programmes “C” and “S”. Or they can shift manually in “M” mode using the DIRECT SELECT steering wheel gearshift paddles.
The comfort suspension provides outstanding ride comfort in virtually every driving situation, fulfilling the highest expectations. It impresses with its low road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and absorbs jolts from road surface bumps and undulations with effortless ease.
The modern technology and durable quality of the V-Class pay off twice over for you: with its efficient, frugal engines, the V-Class achieves low consumption and emissions values and complies with the specifications of the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission additionally helps you to save fuel. Another plus of the V-Class: its high value stability and resale value to be expected.
Active Parking Assist helps you when searching for a parking space and when entering or leaving a parking space. It looks for parking spaces parallel and at right angles to the street and steers the vehicle automatically into such spaces. The integrated PARKTRONIC system visually and audibly warns of obstacles in front of the vehicle and behind, and thus can help prevent damage when manoeuvring.
Driving is best enjoyed when accompanied by a calming sense of safety. Five years ago, the V-Class redefined safety standards in its segment with Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST. The new V-Class takes this a step further with the new Active Brake Assist and Highbeam Assist Plus systems.
