MERCEDES V-CLASS

Quick per­for­mance and ef­fi­ciency are what you can ex­pect from this big baby. The 4-cylin­der diesel en­gine gives you su­pe­rior han­dling, and the fuel con­sump­tion is quite low for a car its size. Look for­ward to a pre­mium cock­pit with a se­lec­tion of high qual­ity ma­te­ri­als. The V-Class has an innovative mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem for nav­i­ga­tion on those long trips. The unique Live Traf­fic In­for­ma­tion keeps you in­formed about the cur­rent traf­fic sit­u­a­tion, mak­ing sure you reach your des­ti­na­tion sooner than ex­pected. The am­bi­ent light­ing pro­vides a sooth­ing at­mos­phere when driv­ing at night.
