Nasser Bin Khaled Automobiles, the authorized general distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Qatar, is pleased to provide the Qatari market with reliable and effective solutions via its multi-purpose vehicles, the luxury V-Class and Vito.
The two MPVs are available now at NBK Automobiles showroom at Slawa Road, providing individuals and corporates integrated transport solutions. While the V class is ideal for individuals to spend amazing outdoor vacations, and for corporates as a luxury transportation vehicle, the multi-purpose Vito gives the companies all the solutions for their business.
The new V-Class combines room for up to eight people and exemplary functionality with the high-class appeal, comfort, efficient driving pleasure and safety that distinguish automobiles bearing the three-pointed star. This makes the Mercedes among MPVs the perfect vehicle for everyone who appreciates great spaciousness but does not want to sacrifice style and comfort.
The new V-Class provides optimum flexibility when it comes to use of the interior and always cuts an elegant figure at the same time. The V-Class is a versatile, multitalented vehicle which offers value, efficiency and safety at the highest level.
Even at first glance the V-Class is unmistakably a member of the Mercedes-Benz passenger car family and sets an emotional highlight in its segment. At the center of the powerful front is the upright radiator grille with three-dimensional central star and the progressively designed headlamps, which for the first time in this segment offer all lighting functions in LED technology as an option. The sculptured V-shaped bonnet merges elegantly into the sporty chrome frame of the radiator grille and the headlamps.
Top efficiency: six-cylinder performance with four-cylinder fuel consumption
At market launch the new V-Class comes to the starting line with the state-of-the-art 2.1-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with two-stage turbocharging, which has already proven highly successful in many passenger car model series from the A-Class to the S-Class, and which has now been further enhanced specifically for the MPV.
New standard of agility and driving pleasure
To enhance personal driving pleasure, the V-Class is the only vehicle in its segment to offer the AGILITY SELECT function in conjunction with the automatic transmission. At the push of a button the driver can select from four driving modes: economical, comfortable, sporty and manual. Engine, accelerator and transmission response are then adapted accordingly.
Low drag is crucial to achieving outstanding efficiency. The level of noise and perceptible vibrations has a major influence on the sense of wellbeing in an automobile. Experts use the term NVH for this: Noise Vibration Harshness. Throughout the development period, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz showed an almost forensic fervour in investigating every possible source of noise and vibrations, so as to eliminate these with specific measures. As a result, thanks to new component concepts and comprehensive insulation the V-Class offers its occupants the lowest noise level in the segment. The interior noise level has been almost halved compared to the preceding model.
Modern style and high-class appeal
The interior of the V-Class is a completely new MPV experience. And not only because it is pleasantly quiet. High-quality materials with a pleasant touch and feel and a harmonious colour concept, intricate details as well as a progressive and sensuous design idiom convey outstanding high-class appeal in the segment – and that hallmark "welcome home" feeling typical of Mercedes-Benz cars. Fine nappa leather is also available for the seats, steering wheel and shift lever. This inviting atmosphere is rounded off by subtle ambient lighting in three colours.
A particular eye-catcher is the dynamically styled two-part dashboard. The upper and lower sections are separated by a large, three-dimensional trim element that creates an impression of width and underscores the high-class appeal. The lower section is sculptural in design. This emphasizes the generous sense of space while also exuding a tangible lightness. For the first time in this class, a leather-look cockpit upper section with lavishly finished topstitching is optionally available.
Other highlights include the free-standing central display, the multifunction steering wheel with 12 buttons and DIRECT SELECT lever with steering wheel shift paddles for automatic models, as well as the innovative touchpad, which allows all telematics functions to be operated by means of gestures or by entering characters in the same way as on a smartphone. The touchpad is available in conjunction with equipment starting from the Audio 20 CD or COMAND Online. In addition the V-Class features the new "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app. For the first time in a Mercedes-Benz, this enables the COMAND Online infotainment system to be controlled from any seat via smartphone. Together, the app and touchpad form the key to the most cutting-edge control and display concept in this vehicle class.
Offering tangible external strengths, great intrinsic values, maximum benefit and low costs, the new Mercedes-Benz Vito is the versatile and real professional among mid-size vans. Whether as a panel van, a people carrier or a mix of both – simply choose the best vehicle for your business. One thing is certain: the new Vito won’t shun any location or shirk any challenge.
Models: Tourer and Mixto
From skilled crafts and trades to retail, service providers, shuttle services and taxis – the new Vito is truly one vehicle for all. The Vito panel van is the only model in its class available in three lengths; Compact (C), Long (L) and Extra-long (E). Meanwhile the Vito Mixto combines the advantages of a panel van with those of a crew bus. The new Vito Tourer sees Mercedes-Benz opening an entirely new chapter in passenger transport.
With its wide range of configurations, seating from 2 to 9, along with numerous equipment choices, the new Vito Tourer is as individual as your passengers. Available in three basic designs – Vito Tourer BASE, Tourer PRO and Tourer SELECT – it serves all segments in the field of commercial passenger transport.
The Vito Mixto makes life easy for you: whether if you have to transport people, cargo or both, the Vito Mixto is an economical, versatile and reliable partner. You can choose between a two- or three-passenger bench seat in the rear, and optionally equipped with a twin co-driver’s seat the Vito Mixto carries up to six people and still offers plenty of space for materials and equipment behind the bench seat.
Performance: Powerful and efficient petrol engine.
The Vito uses the best of what Mercedes-Benz has to offer. The M274 is a well proven and tested turbocharged petrol engine known from other models. With a delivery of 211 Hp and 350 Nm (10 Nm more than the previous V6 engine) it delivers great performance with optimum efficiency.
In terms of power ratings and performance characteristics the engine in the Vito is tuned precisely to the requirements profile of a Mercedes-Benz van. From the air ducting and mass air flow sensor to the exhaust system, the engine is designed specifically for the Vito. Power delivery and drive ability, cold-starting properties and control of injection, noise characteristics and exemplary exhaust gas quality, as well as the measures employed to optimise fuel consumption, are all as you would expect from Mercedes-Benz and the new Vito.
Comfort: Deluxe seating and features
Air conditioning is as individual as the Vito itself: every customer can arrange these systems to suit their specific model and deployment scenario. TEMPMATIC semi-automatic climate control for the cab is optional. This controls the temperature automatically but airflow and distribution are set manually. THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control is even more convenient. With this two-zone system the driver and passenger are able to set their desired temperature individually. Furthermore, the air conditioning system of the Vito has been upgraded to enhance its performance when dealing with the tough weather conditions of the Middle East region.
The three-passenger seat benches can be obtained with a folding outer seat to facilitate access to the rear (standard on the Vito Tourer SELECT). Thanks to the easy-entry function this seat can be folded forwards over the front anchor point in a single move and can also be removed separately.
