BusinessCar Awards 2016: MPV - Mercedes-Benz V-class

Date: 26 January 2016

This was an interesting result, with Ford's S-max finally dethroned after seven years heading this segment.

Mercedes' new V-class executive transporter has been moved farther away from its Vito van sibling than the previous model, and the stylish eight-seater can be specified either with two forward-facing rows of three seats behind the front pair, two rows of three facing each other, or four executive chairs facing each other with a table between them.

The model is powered by a 2.1-litre diesel producing 163hp in the V220 CDI and 190hp in the V250 CDI, both driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Emissions are 149g/km and 166g/km respectively; not bad for such a large vehicle, and a big improvement over the old model. That car also looked less stylish, and the new front and rear lamp clusters, in particular, are a more cutting-edge design that now differentiate the V-class from the Vito van.

The options list is impressive, proving the car is gaining popularity as classy transport. You certainly seem to agree that the V-class is in a league of its own when it comes to ferrying important people in style.
