You’re on the verge of boosting your business with a truly remarkable vehicle. The Mercedes-Benz Vito van is fuel-efficient (of course it is: up to 47.1mpg), drives like a car (would you expect anything less from Mercedes-Benz?), carries a massive, weighty payload (up to 1305kg, which is 120kg more than the previous Vito) and is comfortable enough for entire days spent on the road (the seat ergonomics are also even better than before) – but where it comes into its own is in protecting you, your crew and your cargo.
So it’s not just the unrivalled reliability and build quality that ensures you’ll get there, it’s the reassuring array of safety features. Driver and co-driver airbags are standard, but you can add windowbags and thorax/pelvis sidebags. Tyre-pressure monitoring system, Attention Assist to detect driver tiredness and Crosswind Assist for when you’re buffeted by strong gusts - all standard. Then you can add Collision Prevention Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, intelligent lights that adjust according to conditions, and a reversing camera with dynamic guidelines. Every journey becomes safer. Then there’s optional Active Parking Assist. And since cruise control and speed limiter are standard, you won’t pick up pesky speeding fines.
But you’re not just buying a beautiful bodyguard; this is an exceptionally versatile, powerful and efficient van.
You have a choice of fuel-efficient Euro VI-compliant diesel engines, with optional BlueEFFICIENCY package to achieve 47.1mpg fuel consumption. Front- or rear-wheel drive. Six-speed manual or 7-speed automatic. You’ve got three body lengths to choose between and two wheelbases. And since Mercedes-Benz works really closely with various bodybuilders, if you need to adapt your van for specialist applications, there’s no more suitable vehicle and partner to invest in.
Panel van or crew van? What’s your priority – passengers or load?
With the longest Vito panel van, you get up to 3061mm load length and up to 4.76m2 of load space. Twin sliding doors are standard and rear doors open and secure at 180 degrees – loading and unloading has never been easier. Practical partition walls, load-securing rings and a robust interior build keep van and its contents in perfect order, and you can add load-securing rails and lashing rails (even roof rails if you want them).
If you need to carry people and payload, the crew van takes up to 6 team members in comfort, with stacks of stowage so they’re tidy while they’re in there. If you need room for even more people – ask us about the Vito Tourer. But carrying 6 people doesn’t mean no space for tools or goods or whatever you else you need to transport. Behind the rear seat, the load area measures up to 2.63m2 and holds up to 4.1m3, depending on vehicle length.
Best of all, because it’s a Mercedes-Benz, you know it’s going to hang onto its value well. So that’s long-term economic efficiency taken care of too. With a service only every 24,000 miles, and 24-hour servicing at Sparshatts of Kent, the Vito will keep your business on the road and going places.
