New Mercedes-Benz V-Class comes with a revised front-end design and driver assistance features
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is now available with a revised front-end design, exterior colours, updated interior and a range of cutting-edge driver assistance features. With a redesigned front bumper, the V-Class appears wider by incorporating a broad intake into the lower fascia – an optional AMG Line Package is now available with a new, chrome-accented, diamond radiator grille offering a sportier appearance. The interior of the new V-Class focuses on passenger comfort with a simpler, elegant design with new upholstery and trim options. Building on its position as a class leader in safety, new Active Brake Assist and Highbeam Assist Plus features are now available.
Thomas Greipel, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz Vans Middle East and North Africa (MENA), said: “The new V-Class builds upon the style and appeal that has led the way within the MPV segment – for both private and business owners, while maintaining the Mercedes-Benz standards of quality and robustness. With an updated look and feel, the new V-Class is a powerful and dynamic vehicle that we’re confident will continue to fascinate our customers.”
New safety features can be ordered optionally and continue to build on the Mercedes-Benz V-Class position as a leader for safety standards in its segment. The new (optional) Active Brake Assist can recognise when there is a risk of collision with a vehicle ahead and gives an initial visual and acoustic signal. In addition, the Active Brake Assist can break autonomously up to standstill, if the driver does not react independently and adequately. In urban traffic, the Active Brake Assist can also react to stationary obstacles or pedestrians crossing.
Another new (optional) safety feature is the Highbeam Assist Plus. It supports the driver in the high beam mode through a continuous illumination of the lane. If there are vehicles in front of the V-Class or if there is oncoming traffic, the LEDs of the main-beam module are partially deactivated to create a U-shaped cut-out in the cone of light. The remaining areas of the roadway continue to be illuminated with the main-beam headlamps (partial main beam).
The already successful safety features continue to remain - Crosswind Assist, which supports the driver in keeping the vehicle on track even in the case of heavy crosswinds, and ATTENTION ASSIST, which can detect when drivers start to become drowsy and prompt them to take a break when needed.
