Mercedes-Benz V class
The new V-class minivan will go on sale in the spring of 2014 in Europe and could arrive in the United States in 2015. The V class would compete with the Chrysler Town & Country, Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna. It would be the only rwd offering in the segment and would be slightly larger than its U.S. competitors. Both four- and six-cylinder engines will be offered. The V class will be fitted with a more carlike and upscale interior than the Viano van it replaces. It includes wood decor, ambient lighting and many electronic features. A large panoramic roof will be offered as well.
