Mercedes Benz

The combination of generous space, variability and broad range of appointments makes the Viano one of the most popular vans in its class. At the Frankfurt International Motor Show Mercedes-Benz Vans presents the entire range of possibilities of this MPV. The Grand Edition Viano AVANTGARDE sets new standards with an exclusive exterior. The Viano TREND EDITION combines great flexibility with a comfortable ambience. And in the outdoor exhibition area the compact recreational vehicle Viano MARCO POLO EDITION demonstrates its outstanding recreational value.

Grand Edition Viano AVANTGARDE: exclusive special model

Fascinating, sporty, exclusive – both the exterior and interior of the Grand Edition Viano AVANTGARDE underscore its special status. Black colour highlights in the radiator grille, exclusive 19-inch 5-spoke light-alloy wheels, and mountain crystal white metallic paint make for a matchless exterior. In the interior, trim strips in satin-finish burr-walnut look add style to the remarkable design. The Grand Edition Viano AVANTGARDE leaves hardly anything to be desired where the appointments are concerned: bi-xenon headlamps, a sports suspension with air-sprung rear axle, electrically operated sliding doors on both sides, leather upholstery and THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control with additional TEMPMATIC automatic temperature control in the rear are just a few of the many standard equipment items.

The Grand Edition Viano AVANTGARDE is available in two lengths. Two powerful, economical, low-emission engines also are offered: the four-cylinder 2.2 CDI with an output of 120 kW (163 hp) and the V6 3.0 CDI with 165 kW (224 hp). The power is transmitted by an automatic transmission.

Viano TREND EDITION: utmost travelling comfort

Travelling comfort aplenty thanks to comprehensive equipment. The Viano TREND EDITION additionally has the most frequently selected special equipment items on board – and that at a preferable price. Automatic transmission, heated driver and front passenger seats, the additional TEMPMATIC temperature-controlled air conditioning in the rear, plus metallic paint and 17-inch light-alloy wheels are part of the standard features. The electronic parking aid PARKTRONIC, cruise control and tinted windows in the rear are included in the specifications.

The brilliant silver metallic show vehicle additionally features a second sliding door, a three-passenger comfort bench seat in the rear and a folding table. The 2.2 CDI engine with an output of 120 kW (163 hp) combines power with economy.

Viano MARCO POLO EDITION: everything for your leisure time

To the office in the morning, shopping for the week in the evening, and a spur-of-the-moment trip on the weekend, spending the night under the pop-up roof: the Viano MARCO POLO is the compact recreational vehicle suitable for everyday use. With less than two metres overall height in driving position, it conveniently fits into a garage.

Inside, on the left, in the direction of travel, is a completely furnished kitchenette with cupboards. Cooker, sink, fridge, water system, stowage space, wardrobe – everything is on board. The highlight of the Viano MARCO POLO is its flexible rear bench seat. It comprises two single seats which can be separately adjusted electrically even to a reclining position. On long journeys with four passengers, the side bolsters of the rear bench seat can be electropneumatically inflated – this makes for a comfortable form and secure lateral support also during cornering.

Particularly attractive is the special model Viano MARCO POLO EDITION with an extensive array of special equipment at a preferable price. This ranges from an automatic transmission to bi-xenon headlamps, from TEMPMATIC temperature-controlled air conditioning, 17-inch light-alloy wheels and PARKTRONIC to black-tinted glass in the rear, cruise control, leather steering wheel, Audio 50 APS navigation system and metallic paint, warm-air auxiliary heating and windowbags for the driver and front passenger.

The mountain crystal white exhibit in the outdoor area of the show guarantees impressive dynamics with its V6 3.0 CDI engine and an output of 165 kW (224 hp). The yacht floor in the rear and the Lugano leather upholstery in orion grey give the interior an exclusive look. With its electrohydraulically operated pop-up roof and integrated electric tilting/sliding glass sunroof, this camper van with the three-pointed star lets you almost reach out to the stars at night.

A hallmark of all Viano models is the high-traction rear-wheel drive, providing the basis for both manoeuvrability and precise handling. As an alternative the Viano also can be had with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. With that, the Viano MARCO POLO is ideally prepared to follow in the footsteps of its namesake on discovery tours – even to remote regions of the world.
