2017 Mercedes-Benz V220d arrives in Australia from $74,990

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz V-Class range has been bolstered with the addition of a new V220d variant, which reduces the price of entry by over $12,000 to $74,990 before on-road costs. Slotting in beneath the top-spec V250d Avantgarde and above the more basic Valente people movers, the V220d forgoes some of the higher specification of the V250, while also featuring a slightly less powerful version of the 2.2-litre twin-turbo diesel engine.
