The New Mercedes V Class, The Best A Van Can Get? Or Bloody Expensive?
Auto News

Yes, it is expensive, I mean you can get a nice little or similarly sized Peugeot van for less than half the price of a Mercedes V Class. To remind you, the V Class starts at £48k. The Marco Polo version, which is clever marketing bait-and-switch for camper van, starts at £52k. So who buys a Mercedes V Class? Clever drug dealers and celebrities. The clever drug dealers want something less ostentatious than a Bentley sitting outside their tax-funded home. The celebrities don’t want to be driven around in an ostentatious Bentayga. A vehicle like the V Class allows high-profile celebrities to be driven around while smoking a joint in total privacy. So what do these two target markets get for their money?

The V 220 d and V 300 d use a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with an output of 163 hp and 380 Nm or 236 hp and 500 Nm respectively. A 9G-TRONIC automatic gearbox comes as standard across the range.
