You probably wouldn’t think that moving people in comfort and style would be the job of a courier van.
But that’s essentially what the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is – a pimped out mail delivery van.
It features electric doors on both sides as well as LED headlights with adaptive high beam.
Drawing inspiration from the interior design and features of the S-Class, C-Class and E-Class, it’s a whole another world inside.
It’s the most-up-to-date version of the Mercedes-Benz command media interface with Command online.
There’s been no scrimping on safety features either. The V-Class comes equipped with adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning.
Unlike some cars, you may want to always be a passenger in this.
Our test car is configured with two seats in the front, two in the middle row and three in the rear. That’s the standard configuration, but it’s also available in a 6 or 8 seat arrangement.
If you want to increase the cargo space, the seats are on rails and can be conveniently removed.
With a 15 speaker Bermister sound system as standard, this is no ordinary van and passenger comfort has been catered for.
There are two climate zones, dehumidification function and charcoal filter – what a lovely place to be.
It looks and feels pretty in here, and as you’d expect from a Mercedes it’s very comfortable on the open road, and despite its size it’s not cumbersome to drive. It may look like a van – but in here you wouldn’t know it.
