Mercedes-Benz has revealed the facelifted V-Class van, ahead of a public debut at the 2019 Geneva motor show.
Visually, the V-Class has undergone some subtle changes, including a more aggressive bumper, a new ‘AMG Line’ package, new wheel designs and four new paint colours.
Inside, reclining ‘captain’s chairs’ with massage and heating capabilities are now on offer, and are available in a number of different configurations and orientations. Up front, there are now turbine-style air vents, contrast colour accented leather seat upholstery and new dashboard trim colours.
The engine range has also seen an update. The OM654 turbo-diesel four-cylinder from the E-Class is now part of the updated V-Class range – ‘Benz hasn’t confirmed which models will receive the new powerplant, but it’s believed to feature on the mid-spec V220d and the range-topping V300d (where it’ll make 176kW and 500Nm).
Mercedes has also updated the V’s safety, as autonomous emergency braking and an intelligent high-beam assistant will be offered for the first time.
The refreshed 2019 Mercedes-Benz V-Class will land in Australia in the third quarter of this year.
