Article by Christian A., on November 19, 2015

Mercedes-Benz’s customers in the United Kingdom could now order the New Vito Sport, with a starting price of £25,495 (excluding VAT) for the 116 BlueTEC Compact van. Available both in panel van and crew van versions as well as in Compact or Long body lengths, the Vito Sport is powered by either a 116 BlueTEC and 119 BlueTEC engine, both already compliant with the Euro 6 emission regulations.

The New Vito has more functional and styling features. For instance, the exterior of the Vito Sport now features chrome sidebars and front grille trim, front fog lamps with chrome trim and rear tailgate chrome trim. Also added are color-coded bumpers, a distinct rear model badging and five-spoke alloy wheels.

Moving into the cabin, the Vito Sport features comfortable driver and single passenger seats, air-conditioning, Audio 15 infotainment system with color screen, as well as ‘Sport’ branded floor mats and tinted glass. All Vito Sport models can be fitted with the optional plug-in Becker MapPilot navigation system, which integrates navigation features via standard Auto 15 headunit and visual display.

Since 2009, the Vito Sport has been a vital member of Mercedes’ Vito line-up, with the New Vito variant offering better standard specification at a competitive tag. On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz will introduce Sport-X models, which are being developed alongside the Sport, in the first quarter of 2016.

The quoted price is ex-factory and excludes VAT and delivery. All model prices include Sport standard finish paint. Sales and marketing of the Vito in the UK are the responsibility of Mercedes-Benz Vans, which is also in charge of all Daimler Van products and services in the country.

A division of Mercedes-Benz UK, Mercedes-Benz Vans had an amazing year in the UK in 2014, posting 16.1-percent more registrations to 35,036 vehicles.

The Vito Sport has become a key part of the Vito line-up since its introduction in 2009, and the New Vito variant takes the existing successful formula, and enhances it with improved standard specification and competitive pricing.
