2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Mercedes-Benz V Class

After the German automaker officially unveiled the new generation V Class in Munich, at the end of January, the general public has the possibility to see the new model during the Geneva auto show.

The new V Class is designed by Mercedes-Benz to considerably up the ante on the van’s consumer appeal, as it replaces the old Viano and borrows design elements from the current C, E and S Classes, allowing it to become the upscale van we always wanted (or so the automaker hopes).

While the exterior is pretty straightforward, taking all the necessary elements from the current Mercedes design language, the revolution is in the interior, where Mercedes allows the customer to put in the cabin features like the freestanding COMAND display, garnish it with premium leather upholstery or even wood trim and make the back a small conference room with individual rear seats and rear center consoles.

The model is also customizable, being offered with different wheelbases (3,200 mm or 3,430 mm) and lengths (three positions, from 4,895 mm to 5,370 mm). The entry level is equipped with the 200 CDI 2.1-liter four-cylinder engine (136 hp and 330 Nm), while the 220 CDI delivers 163 hp (120 kW) and 380 Nm and the 250 BlueTec has 190 hp (140 kW) and 440 Nm.
