The future generation of the Mercedes-Benz Viano has been recently spied while it was being tested on a public road, wrapped in a lot of camouflage.
The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz is currently working on a future generation of the Viano, which will make its way onto the market by the end of the year. The model in question will be a one-box car which will improve its pedestrian protection rules and it will receive a true bonnet. The future generation of the Viano is expected to receive a wide range of BlueEfficiency diesel engines, one it will hit showrooms. Additional details on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz Viano are limited for the moment and will probably be announced close to its launch.
As a quick reminder, the outgoing Mercedes-Benz Viano is a multi-purpose vehicle based on the Vito commercial panel van. The first generation was introduced back in 1996 while the current one is on sale ever since 2004. The model is currently being assembled in Spain, Mexico and China and it’s coming with a choice of two diesels and four petrol engines, mated to either a six-speed manual or a 5-speed TouchShift transmission. The current Viano is coming with six or seven seats as standard in most markets.
