SPONSORED: Mercedes-Benz embraces the summer spirit of togetherness with the V-Class, which is pure pleasure on the road for drivers and passengers alike. 

Whether it’s a road trip with the family, a vacation with old friends or driving to and from sports games, summer is about spending time together. The Mercedes-Benz V-Class embraces a lifestyle where spending time together is easier, more luxurious, safer and simply a pleasure.

And the V-Class V300d now also sports an impressively powerful engine, which sets the benchmark in the MPV segment, and nine gears, for improved shift comfort and fuel efficiency, delivering even more driving fun.

The specs

The Mercedes-Benz V-Class V300d is available with the four-cylinder OM 654 engine and the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. With 174 kW and 500 Nm of torque, the V300d sets the benchmark in the multi-purpose vehicle segment. What's more, thanks to the new engine generation, it is more efficient and cleaner than before and offers an improved level of noise and vibration comfort.

  • In the acceleration phase, the V300d can deliver an additional 30 Nm of torque for a short time ("overtorque").
  • The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission improves shift comfort and fuel efficiency. 
  • The driver can use the Dynamic Select  switch to select the drive programs "Comfort" and "Sport" and thus influence the gearshifting characteristics.
  • Alternatively, "Manual" mode allows the driver to shift manually using the Direct Select steering wheel paddles.
  • It offers feel-good ambience for a seven-seater, with an eight-seating option available.

It is more than just a luxury vehicle, it’s a way of life. The V-Class means access, access to experiences, to moments with loved ones, driving pleasure, safety on the road and a life well-lived.
