The 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class has been officially unveiled in Germany and this is actually the very first van you may want to own.
Mercedes-Benz’s newest creation is the 2014 V-Class. The model in question is the replacement of the Viano and after seeing it in a lot of spy photos over these past few months, time has come for the car company to officially pull the wraps off its body. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class is borrowing some of the design cues of the C-Class, of the E-Class and of the S-Class, amongst others, and we can clearly see the LED infused headlights, the prominent front grille, the protruding wheel arches, sweeping shoulder line, sculpted bodywork and others.
The same upscale design of the van is being continued in the cabin too, where it has received some interesting items such as the premium leather upholstery, the individual rear seats, the rear center consoles, the wood trim, the freestanding COMAND display, the ambient lighting, metallic accents and some other items. Just like we said in the first paragraph, thanks to these “goodies”, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the first van you may want to own.
Mercedes-Benz will be offering the V-Class in three different lengths, from 4,895 mm to 5,370 mm, and with a short or long wheelbase (3,200 mm or 3,430 mm). As far as the engine lineup goes, the new vehicle is coming as a 200 CDI in the entry-level version, which is taking its power from a 2.1 liter four-cylinder unit, which is producing a total output of 136 HP (100 kW) and it has a peak torque of 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. There is also a 220 CDI found, with its 163 HP (120 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. The 250 BlueTec is offering 190 HP (140 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque.
