Mercedes-Benz Vans adds another member to its family of compact camper vans and recreational vehicles: the new Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo HORIZON, complementing the product portfolio consisting of the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY.

The third member of the Marco Polo family can be ordered with prices starting at 52 051 Euro (including 19 percent VAT in Germany). Thanks to compact exterior dimensions and a vehicle height below two metres, the Marco Polo HORIZON is not just ideal for leisure activities, it is also a perfect everyday companion. For instance, it can get into any standard multi-storey car park without problems.

The new Marco Polo HORIZON combines attributes of the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY, making it an ideal addition to the portfolio to attract new target groups with multiple seating configurations. These range from the standard five-seater with three-seater bench/berth and two swivelling front seats to four single comfort seats in the rear to the seven-seater with three-seater bench/berth in the second rear row and two additional single seats in the first rear row.

Seats can also be removed if more space is required to transport sports and leisure equipment – transforming the everyday van into a recreational vehicle. Overnight comfort is also assured. The comfortable roof bed for two people measures 2.05 m x 1.13 m. Depending on the seating configuration, the bench seat/berth in the rear can be turned into a bed measuring 1.93 m x 1.35 m for up to three people. Two drawers underneath the bench seat/berth provide stowage space. Furthermore, it is possible to darken the interior using curtains for a good night’s sleep.

The Marco Polo HORIZON can be ordered with all the familiar V-Class diesel engines, with outputs ranging from 100 kW to 120 kW to 140 kW. As an alternative to rear-wheel drive, 4MATIC all-wheel drive is also on offer – both in conjunction with the 7G-TRONIC PLUS seven-speed automatic transmission (combined fuel consumption: 6.8 – 6.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 179 – 158 g/km).

The Marco Polo HORIZON can be stylishly individualised with an array of high-quality materials. Be it wood-look, piano lacquer-look or wave-look trim – the design of the cockpit based on the V-Class lends the recreational vehicle that certain something. Featuring a wide choice of further optional extras, such as the Interior Design package with Lugano leather or the AMG Line, the Marco Polo HORIZON can be tailored to meet every taste.
