Replacing both the Viano minivan and the ill-fated R-Class crossover, the new Mercedes-Benz V-Class went on sale in 2014. Unlike its predecessors, the model is powered exclusively by a range of four-cylinder diesel engines, but Mercedes is expected to add other drivelines in the near future. One of those could be a gasoline plug-in hybrid, albeit Mercedes-Benz is still studying the interest for such a model.

Based on the production V-Class, the Mercedes-Benz Concept V-ision E offers a take on a future plug-in hybrid version for the luxury MPV, blending increased performance with much-improved fuel economy. The concept is powered by an improved version of the plug-in hybrid system used on the C350e, offering the highest output of any V-Class and the option of all-electric driving.

The Mercedes V-Class Night Edition is the Worst Thing to Come Out of Mercedes-AMG in a Long Time

The Mercedes V-Class Night Edition is the Worst Thing to Come Out of Mercedes-AMG in a Long Time

The 70s are over. Can we quit trying to make minivans cool again?

I love the goodness that is AMG as much as the next man. There’s no denying that AMG makes some of the finest engines and most aggressive looking vehicles you can buy today. Be that as it may, what Mercedes-AMG just did to the V-Class is worthy of crucifixion or, at the very least, burning someone at the stake. I introduce you to the V-Class Night Edition – a traditional Mercedes Minivan with lots of hope and absolutely NO go. Seriously, Mercedes gave this thing everything AMG from branded front fascias to wheels to goodness on the inside too.

2016 Mercedes-Benz V-Class AMG Line

2016 Mercedes-Benz V-Class AMG Line

The Mercedes V-Class has had an interesting life, to say the least. First introduced in 1996, the V-Class has undergone more name changes than Diddy himself. It was first called the V-Class before being rebranded as the Viano when the second-generation model arrived in 2004. Then in 2014, the third-generation model was introduced and with it, Mercedes went back to the van’s roots by bringing back the V-Class name. Depending on where you are in the world, iterations of the van have also been called the Vito, Marco Polo, and most recently in the US, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris.

The current 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class, or at least the one sold in Europe, is considered as one of the plushest people carriers in the market. The interior, for instance, is a picture of luxury, providing the same aura of elegance as some of Merc’s luxury sedans.The popularity of the V-Class is a big reason why Mercedes is trying to parlay that success by introducing the new V-Class AMG Line package for the people-mover.

Like most packages of this sort, the AMG Line features plenty of exterior and interior updates, all created with help coming from Merc’s performance division. It’s actually the first time AMG will get its hands on a model from Mercedes’ van division, so expect it to be dressed to the nines with plenty of new components, features and tech additions.

The V-Class AMG Line will be showcased at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Once it’s done turning heads at the exhibition floor, the AMG Line package will then head to dealerships where it’s set to become available in markets where the V-Class is sold.

2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class

2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class

Rumors have been circulating for quite some time now that Mercedes will bring a new model to its lineup. And now those rumors are coming true, as the new V-Class set to arrive on the market sometime next year. This is the second time Mercedes-Benz will make use of the V-Class name — Mercedes still calls the Viano the V-Class in select markets around the globe.

The new V-Class will replace both the Viano and the wildly unsuccessful R-Class, and will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Sales will begin shortly after that.

The new V-Class — codenamed W447 — will receive a more aggressive design language when compared to the current Viano and a more luxurious interior. The first images reveal an interior with a removable touch pad on the upper section of the center console, and a premium cabin with wood inserts, chocolate leather upholstery and several metallic accents.

Under the hood, we will likely see gasoline and diesel engines, with the most powerful version delivering up to 190 horsepower.
