In 2014, Mercedes-Benz launched its new generation of V-Class.
Now the vehicle is further away from the utility vehicles from which it was based on. More luxury and more comfort were added so now it is more like a limousine with a higher stance.
For the 2020 model year, Mercedes-Benz announced important upgrades for its MPV, starting with the exterior look and continuing with the powertrains and transmission. On the grille, in the middle, the three-star logo is bigger and flanked by two silver slats. There will also be three trim levels: Avantgarde, Exclusive and AMG. The latter one has a different front grille with chrome pins, which accentuates the sporty look of the vehicle. Newly designed 18” wheels are offered, with silver and black lines in the middle of the 5-twin spoke design. The top versions may even receive 19” 10 spoke alloy-wheels with a high-sheen finish.
For the engines, Mercedes-Benz installed the new OM654 diesel unit with single or bi-turbo. While the single-turbo OM654 offers 190 hp and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque, while the bi-turbo has 239 hp and 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of torque.
The interior received seats at the same level as the flagship S-Class, with full reclining, massage and ventilation systems, which will make any trip a relaxing experience.
