Mercedes has facelifted the Mercedes V-Class/EQV/Marco Polo, Vito, and eVito mid-size vans and commercial vehicles which come with a new front end, additional comfort equipment, and new assistance systems.
Mercedes plans to have more than 50% of its vans and commercial vehicles electrically powered by 2030. Currently, every van and commercial vehicle has an electric version and so far more than 40,000 electric units have been sold. The best-selling model is the eVito.
The facelift operated now is the last for Mercedes’ mid-class van and commercial vehicle range before the introduction of the VAN.EA (Van Electric Architecture) platform in 2026.
Standard equipment in progress
After the facelift, the Mercedes V-Class is available in Base, Style, Avantgarde, and Exclusive versions. Optionally, the AMG Line, Night package (for the V-Class), and the EQV exterior and interior design package (for the EQV) can be ordered.
The V-Class Style trim comes with leather steering wheel, Tempmatic climate control for the rear seats, and comfort seat for the front passenger. Avantgarde has standard Thermotronic climate control, wireless smartphone charging, front seats with 4-way lumbar support and adjustable seat cushion depth, adaptive Multibeam LED headlights, navigation, Live Traffic Information, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The top level Exclusive is equipped with sport suspension, a nappa leather steering wheel, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat including memory function, tinted windows in the rear, electrically operated sliding doors, and the electric Easy-pack tailgate as well as 19-inch alloy wheels.
At the same time, the Vito and eVito vans are available in Tourer, Furgon and Mixto versions combined with Base, Pro and Select equipment.
The Vito Base is equipped with the new multifunction steering wheel, MBUX multimedia system, Keyless Start, and Tempmatic semi-automatic air conditioning, and from the Pro trim line, customers get front seats with 4-way lumbar support and a 70-liter fuel tank.
Select top equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, adaptive Multibeam LED headlights, the automatic transmission including electric parking brake, mirror package, interior chrome package, smartphone integration, and a chrome-plated radiator grille.
New front-end design
Mercedes V-Class/EQV, Vito/eVito come with a redesigned front end, featuring a more attractive radiator grille in different shapes and a more prominent bumper. Depending on the equipment, the radiator grille of the EQV, V-Class, and Marco Polo V-Class models is surrounded by an LED light strip. Multibeam LED headlamps are available as standard or optional depending on the version. The V-Class Exclusive top version features the Mercedes logo on the bonnet for the first time.
At the rear, the newly designed bumper and LED lights with a smoky tint ensure an unmistakable look. The EQV, V-Class, and V-Class Marco Polo models also have a new chrome strip with Mercedes-Benz lettering at the rear. New aerodynamically optimized 17-, 18- and 19-inch wheels and five new colors are available after the facelift.
Inside, the Mercedes V-Class/EQV/Marco Polo gets the two 12.3-inch displays for the instrument cluster and multimedia system, as in the compact class models, new air vents, and steering wheels. Instead, Mercedes has kept the touchpad found in the pre-facelift A-Class, which is rather imprecise. Fortunately, the driver has several options for operating the multimedia system: directly from the touchscreen, via voice command, or from the steering wheel. The multimedia system has additional features such as music streaming, Energizing Comfort Control, and augmented reality navigation.
The Mercedes Vito/eVito has a 10.25-inch multimedia system with a 5.5-inch color display located between the redesigned instrument cluster.
Both the Mercedes EQV and eVito now benefit from electrically intelligent navigation in that routes can be planned based on available range. Optional extras include wireless phone charging, keyless start, heated steering wheel, and 64-color ambient lighting.
For easier access to the rear, the Mercedes V-Class and EQV also have a second rear sliding door as standard. For the first time, the electric tailgate is available as an option on the Vito Tourer and Mixto and the eVito Tourer, and the electric parking brake is standard or optional depending on the equipment on all commercial versions with automatic transmission.
More standard assistance systems
Mercedes V-Class, EQV and V-Class Marco Polo have standard Attention Assist, Active Distance Assist Distronic (adaptive autopilot), Active brake assist with cross-traffic function, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Intelligent Speed Assist and Park Package.
Vito and eVito are standard equipped with Attention Assist, Headlight Assist including rain sensor, cruise control, Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Intelligent Speed Assist and reversing camera.
