Mercedes-Benz V-Class to be launched on January 24, 2019


Mercedes-Benz is set to launch the V-Class in India on January 24, 2019. The premium MPV is likely to be imported as a completely built unit (CBU).

In the international market, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is offered in three configurations - the standard length of the vehicle is 4,895 mm, the long version measures 5,140 mm, while the extra long version has an overall length of 5,370 mm. Which of these will be available in India remains to be seen. 

In terms of styling, the V-Class gets a typical Mercedes grille up front with sweptback headlamps on either side and LED tail lamps at the rear. It comes with multiple seating configurations with sliding doors at the rear. The MPV has a dashboard with a centrally mounted touchscreen infotainment system flanked by circular AC vents. It has a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and a twin-dial instrument cluster.

In India, the V-Class is expected to be offered with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that is available on the E-Class All-Terrain. It makes 192 BHP @ 3,800 rpm and 400 Nm @ 1,600-2,800 rpm.
