With the new Mercedes-Benz Viano PEARL Limited Edition, the consumers get the advantages of a large-capacity vehicle but they’re still able to travel in style. The range-topping model of the Viano lineup offers spaciousness and exclusivity. It sets the bar higher with its classy and stylish interior that uses only the best materials while it gets a dynamic exterior.
The front end design comes with a revised modified radiator grille and a unique bumper with integrated LED daytime driving lights that offer an understated but effective initial indication of the class exemplified by this exclusive Viano. The vehicle gets a special look from its new "magno allanite grey" paintwork, which comes with a satin finish. Mercedes-Benz is also offering an alternative new metallic paint finish.
The Viano PEARL Limited Edition is fitted with 19-inch light-alloy wheels with two-tone paintwork and tires in 245/45 R 19. The vehicle gets shoulder line trim strips that only serve to highlight its elegant character. For the exterior, the company is offering optional roof rails in the contrasting dark color "mountain grey.”
It’s not a Mercedes-Benz without its luxurious features and this particular one gets high-quality real wood, fine nappa leather, as well as trim elements in brushed aluminum. Entering the car is a treat in itself as its entrance steps are laden with walnut wood strips and it has illuminated brand lettering.
The rear gets an actual walnut floor that comes with a warm walnut stain finish. The privacy level of the vehicle can be adjusted with the touch of a button via the MAGIC SKY CONTROL that darkens the rear side windows. Electrochromatic glass is used for the windows.
Powering the Viano PEARL CDI 3.0 Blue EFFICIENCY Limited Edition is a V6 diesel engine that has a 165 kW (224 hp) rating that results to excellent performance but with limited fuel consumption.

It has a retail price of € 99,000 net.
The interior of the Mercedes-Benz Viano, with its Lugano leather upholstery, can be described as exclusive, stylish, and elegant. Its seat covers, for both the driver and the passengers, have a new design. The fabrics and the nappa leather come in different colors and as already mentioned, there is the Lugano upholstery. There is a total of three colors available with each having a piping design and with its grain finish, resulting in a stylish look.
Complementing the new upholstery are the decorative trims that are finished in a fine burr walnut. While the Lugano leather upholstery is an option for the Viano Trend, this same material is fitted as standard under the Viano Ambiente. For both the Viano Fun and the Viano Marco Polo, this same leather is in orion grey. An excellent option for the Viano is the Rear Seat Entertainment system which can be pre-installed.
This system ensures that the passengers sitting in the back are not only entertained but informed as well. In fact, the Viano comes with a wide range of media formats. There are films to help entertain the children and it can even contain presentations for business partners. Should the customers want it, the system can be equipped at the factory level with the mountings and wiring for the devices placed on the vehicle’s roof liner. These are, to name a few, infrared headphones, DVD players, monitors, and the hinged roof liner systems.
All of these can be availed at Mercedes-Benz Accessories and can then be fitted to the vehicle through workshops certified by Mercedes-Benz. There is a feature though that will be fitted regardless of what Viano variant the customer buys. This is a new set of radios that deliver the best when it comes to entertainment and information. Fitted as standard are the CD/DVD drive and the hands-free Bluetooth system.
Standard as well is the auxiliary connection for other devices. What makes the audio system in Viano remarkable is that the navigation system, CD player/CD changer, and radio, are all managed by Lingatronic, a voice control system. Customers who are not interested to have the Bluetooth system can opt to have the telephony system. This particular system comes with a roof antenna, fixed telephone console, and offers excellent voice quality.
