If you are looking for a stylish people carrier with a lot of practicality than the 2015 Mercedes-Benz V-Class may be just what the doctor has ordered. According to the car manufacturer, the model in question is now getting ready to be introduced in Australia, as this should be hitting the local dealerships this July. The carmaker will be offering, initially, one version of the vehicle, the V250 BlueTec Avantgarde, which is available with seating for up to eight occupants and it is coming as the replacement for the Viano as a premium luxury people-mover.

The cheapest version of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class will start from 85,500 AUD, plus on-road costs, and this basically means 4,385 AUD more than the model it is replacing. Power to it is being provided by the 2.1 liter four-cylinder diesel engine, rated at 140 kW and 440 Nm of torque, or 150 kW and 480 Nm of torque with the temporary “overtorque” mode under hard acceleration. The fuel consumption has improved by more than 26 percent compared to its predecessor and this is the first vehicle in its class to comply with the Euro 6 emission standards. Four driving modes are being offered, along with the steering wheel paddle shifters for the standard 7-speed automatic transmission, RWD, adaptive ESP and much more. It will arrive in Australian showrooms this July.
