It is Luxurious, comfortable and easy to drive.

V-Class

The V-Class is the third generation of the full size Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPV) from Mercedes, it went to production in 2014 to replace the Viano and the R-Class. The V-Class is designed with three rows of seating and two sliding doors, with all the technology and luxury features that can be found in a car.

This vehicles has all you need from size and space offered by MPVs to the luxury and comfortable of a big size sedan to the easy of driving you look for in a car. It has powerful engines and a lot of technology that takes this vehicles to the next level.

How does it feel?

It is very good to drive, you do not expect a van to be that good and easy to drive inside the town, but once we started driving the V 250 we felt how it is not built only for long distances it can be driven easily in the traffic too.

It combines different type of driving modes with its Agility Control System that has four driving mode: Eco, Comfort, Sport and Manual. These mode change the throttle response and steering to suit your preference.

Mostly you will leave the car in the Comfort mode as we did because that suits more the nature of the vehicle, as it is not made to be sporty even that the Sport mode adds 13 bhp and 30 lb ft of over-boost.

What we noticed the most is that the steering wheel is light and easy to use in the city, also the V 250 is very comfortable while driving and it let you enjoy the trip because the suspension system is made to bring a high level of driving dynamics.

It is not slow as you may think instead  it is fast for a MPV and has good engine response all of that comes form the 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 211 hp and 350 nm, with 7-speed automatic 7G-TRONIC PLUS.

Exterior

Exterior design is sharp and it is a revolution in the vans world, the front end shares the same design of the C, E and S class as this is the new design strategy from Mercedes to have almost the same grill and front LED intelligent lights.

From the side there are the sliding electrically operated side doors.
