Mercedes-Benz has been working on refreshing its people-hauling V-Class, which has racked up more than 100,000 deliveries since 2014. But before the new model finally goes on sale sometime next year, the German automaker is giving the current model one last special edition to keep customers interested.
It is called the V-Class Night Edition and it comes with a handful of improvements care of the AMG department. But don’t get too excited because they aren’t doing any improvements to the engine. Power comes from the automaker’s familiar 2.1 liter turbodiesel engine with 190 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 325 pound-feet (440 Newton metres) of torque. According to Mercedes, the average fuel consumption is between 6.8 and 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers, or 34.6-31.4 miles per gallon with CO2 emissions of 179-199 grams per kilometer.
As for the exterior upgrades, there’s the new AMG front and rear aprons, new radiator grille with two louvres in high gloss black, black AMG sourced 19 inch alloy wheels with seven twin spoke design, Edition badges on the front wings, and tinted rear windows.
When inside the cabin, you will find a generous amount of black nappa leather, a dashboard with enhanced leather look finish that has contrasting top stitching, special Edition floor mats, and a black roof liner. Of course, some of the standard equipment includes the parking package with a 360 degree camera plus other features, making it easier for the driver to park and maneuver.
The Night Edition V-Class is now available. The special model of the carrier from Mercedes Benz puts the focus on its sporty look with exclusive black design features. On top of this, AMG front and rear aprons as well as AMG trim elements in the interior come as standard.
German customers can already order the Mercedes V Class with a starting price of €55,260 or approximately $66,099 at current exchange rates. Opting for the special edition model could mean savings of up to €2,300 ($2,751) rather than getting a regular V-Class and getting additional optional features for it. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in June this year. So if you want this on your garage, you can already reserve yourself a unit online.
If the V-Class is a bit too plain for you and you would prefer something more dramatic, the tuners at Carlex Design can build you the rear wheel drive van of your dreams. It comes with more major aesthetic changes compared to those on the standard model, including modifications on both the exterior and the cabin.
