The new Elite version of V Class will be available as the 6-seater long wheelbase variant and is brought into the country from Spain via CBU route. Three new colour options have been offered on this new variant besides the existing four colours present on the V Class model. The new colours are Steel Blue, Selenite Grey and Graphite Grey.
Features list on the new Mercedes Benz V Class Elite
includes 17 inch standard alloy wheels that can be upgraded to 18-inch units, Nappa leather upholstery in beige and black tone, power adjustable second row seats with recliner, massage and ventilation functions, foldable centre table at the rear, ambient lighting, electrically operated sliding doors, refrigerated compartment in the centre console, turbine styled ac vents and an optional panoramic sunroof along with the brand’s Easy Pack Tailgate. Safety features include six airbags, attention assist, ABS with EBD and 360 degree parking camera with active park assist.
The new V Class Elite gets a BS-VI, 2.0L OM 654 diesel engine that is capable of making 163bhp worth power and 380Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a 9G-tronic automatic transmission, unlike the other two variants that have only a 7 speed automatic gearbox. The new MPV claims to sprint from 0-100kmph in just about 11 seconds. The suspension unit on the V Class Elite is well appointed with Agility Control and selective damping system.
V Class was a well received MPV while it was launched in the country, and the sales figures too in the last couple of months have supported the fact that the trend continues to be the same. Apparently Mercedes Benz
is one luxury brand that has managed to bring significant results on their sales graph in spite of the auto market being highly volatile.
