Mercedes today raised the curtain above the repaired grade V. The modernization comes after five years.
Mercedes added the class to its new look in the design language of the current models of personal car brands. The new V class thanks to the new front has a wider appearance and its appearance is dominant. These features provide a newly constructed bumper with a recognizable cooling air inlet and a new diamond structure in the refrigerator mask. The Mercedes star is located in the center of the radiator mask and is surrounded by two silver slats. The concept of individual adaptation through the attractive lines of AVANTGARDE and EXCLUSIVE has been preserved, but modernizing the AMG Line has even better looks: it includes a new diamond chrome-plated chassis mask to get the sporty touch.
New gray-gray and selenium gray metallic colors extend the range of popular black and white shades. Blue steel is also available. The new hijacin red on demand adds a new class V emotional accent. Four new lightweight alloy panel designs make a recognizable and avant-garde look. The choice is therefore a 17-inch lightweight, polished black lacquered design with five twin-spoke arms, as well as 18-inch aluminum rims in tremolly gray, polished, with five twin spokes or black polished 5-lamp design. The offering of new disks completes 19-inch aluminum rims with black lacquered, polished, 10-rack design.
The designers joined the interior and conveyed the interior design philosophy of the current Mercedes-Benz car model to the new class V. The interior of the new V class follows a trend that is characterized by a modern look and purity. Class V, as part of the modernization, has received new turbocharged air intake nozzles as well as a new form in a combined instrument. With fewer impressions, the driver will have a much better look. New upholstery and upholstery in Tartufo's diaper skin provide a stylish and elegant expression. Along with leather Lugano and leather nappa, available in black and silk colored beige, as well as in black fabric Santos, there are six versions of the dress in light and dark shades. Stylish and stylish is the new decorative element with the look of the two tape on the instrument panel and the side panels. Decorative elements with piano, ebony, carbon fibers and brushed aluminum are left.
Exceptional comfort in modernization can be enjoyed by passengers on the rear seats. The luxury seats (for your wishes) for the first row of seats break the baggage, back massage and air conditioning as in class S. This makes a new class V ride, for example, as a VIP service for a VIP service after a hard summer or business meeting. becomes a pleasant experience.
When we introduced class V five years ago, we showed that even XXL vehicles can have an elegant and dynamic look. We have succeeded in persuading families, leisure adventurers as well as buyers from the business sphere – from Europe to Asia. The evidence is about 209,000 vehicles sold in Class V since mid-2014 and one of the youngest Mercedes-Benz customers. At the beginning of 2019, we continued a successful story. Through modernization we develop the strength of our large capacity vehicle. We will soon recall this segment and expand our portfolio of fully electric super cars Wilfried Porth, Human Resources Director and Daimler AG Director for Relations with Mercedes-Benz Vans.
Specific information on electricity will be found during this year. Everything starts in Geneva in March with the concept of EQV. It will be electric V. The real vehicle will be in the personal and service version. But from dreams we will come to a pleasant reality.
New engine, new gearbox
As part of the modernization of the Mercedes-Benz IV class Mercedes-Benz will get a four-cylinder OM 654 diesel engine, which will be available, among other things, in two top class 250d and 300d. They are adding a new 9-speed gearbox that we already know from personal cars.
The most exciting is undoubtedly 300d. The design could come up with a diesel six-cylinder engine, but it is an exceptionally powerful four-cylinder new Mercedes diesel engine. The version has a maximum power of 176 kW (239 hp) and a maximum torque of 500 Nm. Fuel consumption should be 5.9 to 6.3 liters (NEDC).
At 300 d in the acceleration phase, the torque increases for a short time to 500 Nm for a further 30 Nm (Overtorque). V 300 d accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.9 seconds. Maximum speed is 220 km / h.
The new generation of engines is even more efficient and cleaner, offering enhanced sound comfort and vibration comfort. Silent silence in the car, disturbing vibrations are lower.
Innovative features of the new generation of engines include a combination of aluminum blocks and steel pistons, a combustion process in a gradual cavity, as well as a NANOSLIDE® sliding surface that reduces friction inside the engine. The effectiveness of these measures, in the case of the new V 250 d model compared to the previous model, is reflected, for example, in fuel savings of about 13%2.
Most components that are relevant for effective emission reduction are mounted directly on the engine. Integrated approach to technology, including a new combustion process, dynamic flue gas recirculation, and flue gas extraction close to the engine, allows low emissions of low emissions. Thanks to an insulated schedule close to the engine, additional flue gas treatment has low thermal losses and favorable working conditions. The measures include:
- Exhaust gas recirculation under high pressure and low pressure, including cooling
- DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) (DOC) for reducing carbon monoxide (CO) and unburnt hydrocarbons (HC)
- Solid Particle Filter with SCR Catalyst Function (sDPF)
- SCR catalyst (selective catalytic reduction) to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. For this purpose, ammonia in the form of AdBlue® was added to smoke gas before SDDP
- Catalytic Selective Reduction (SCR) catalyst with ammonia oxidation catalyst (ASC) in the exhaust system
For the first time, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is also available as part of a class V upgrade. With the DYNAMIC SELECT menu, the driver can choose Comfort and Sport driving programs to influence the motion properties. Or, in manual mode, he or she will automatically transfer DIRECT SELECT to the controller.
All new V-Class engines come standard with a rear-wheel drive, on a 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Thanks to this, the new class V, with ease, passes through different terrain. Even when driving on all wheels, the vehicle height does not exceed two meters. The new V class therefore does not lose its convenience in everyday use and will have no problems in all existing garages, parking places, underground garages and washing rooms.

New class V – even safer
Through a side windscreen assistant helping the driver to keep the V-Class's V-Class even in the case of strong side wind blows and HELP HELP, HELP HELP, Class V five years ago introduced new safety standards in its segment. Modernization of the model strengthens this position.
The new Active Brake Assist system recognizes a situation where there is a risk of collision with the vehicle that goes ahead and first gives a visual and audible warning. If the driver does not respond, the active brake assist creates a brake system pressure that suits the situation. If the driver still does not respond, the system will run the automatic brake maneuver. In urban traffic, the active brake assist also responds to the obstacles that stand or cross pedestrians. This can prevent accidents or at least mitigate their severity.
Another new security feature, available for the first time in class V, is a plus-plus plus (on request). In remote mode, the remote heating assistant also ensures permanent, complete road lighting without dazzling other traffic participants. The dipped-beam diodes in the remote are partially switched off when the vehicle approaches in the opposite direction or when approaching the vehicle in front of the vehicle, creating a U-shaped spacing. Other road areas are still illuminated by long light (no sticky long beams)
Facelift also applies to the compact devices of Marco Polo Marco Polo and HORIZONT Marco Polo. The versions have acquired a new design of ancestors, new paint and light alloy, new ventilation jets and overlays. In addition, a new diesel engine with a maximum power of 176 kW (239 hp) was added, as well as an active brake assist and auxiliary light plus.
