Mercedes-Benz has officially revealed the all-new 2014 V-Class. The event took place in Munich, Germany. The new 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class was designed to replace the Viano and features a lot of styling cues borrowed from the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class.

“With the new V-Class we are expanding the Mercedes-Benz premium automobile range with a sedan for up to eight people,” says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Division. “Functionality is a must for an MPV; comfort and style are the icing on the cake. The new V-Class combines both in a way that no other vehicle in this segment can offer.”

On the front-end we see a massive radiator grille flanked by LED-infused headlights, while in the back is a sculpted bodywork, an upward sweeping shoulder line and big wheel arches. Inside the cabin, buyers will find premium leather upholstery, wood trim, ambient lighting, metallic accents, a freestanding COMAND display and individual rear seats with a center console.

“The new V-Class demonstrates that an elegant and dynamic appearance is also possible in size XXL,” says Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans. “The V-Class is a versatile, multitalented vehicle that offers value, efficiency, and safety at the highest level. As a result, we are addressing completely new customer groups — including people who need a large amount of space but never wanted to drive an MPV because style, well-being, and riding comfort have so far been neglected in this segment.”

Under the hood of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class, buyers will have to choose from three different engines. On the 200 CDI version, they will get a 2.1 liter with 136 horsepower and 330 Nm peak of torque while on the 220 CDI owners will get 163 HP and 380 Nm of torque. Last, but not least is the 250 BlueTec with 190 horsepower and 440 Nm peak of torque.

Furthermore, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class will be offered in a short and long wheelbase and in three different lengths.
