Vilner upgrades the Mercedes-Benz Vito 120 CDI

Article by Christian A., on January 2, 2012

Vilner proves that your standard Mercedes-Benz Vito 120 CDI could be transformed into a lavish business class van that is perfect for driving official visitors around and for long trips. To make the ride comfortable, the coupe is totally soundproofed and it makes use of premium materials like Amareta, Alcantara and Nappa.

It has been equipped with Mercedes CL seats with electronic control as well as mahogany armrests and elegant tables.

The attention to details is obvious with its rear-view mirror dressed in Amareta, the intricate ergonomic steering-wheel, the plug chargers installed for mobile phones and the built-in devices that measure time, temperature and atmospheric pressure.

Traveling is truly first class with its Vilner Sound System, comprising the Hi-Fi multimedia system, built-in 19'' LCD display and ambient illumination in orange (a common Mercedes color).

Vilner has the occupants’ comfort in mind with its installed refrigerator, reducing temperature to -400, its minibar and the built-in cup holders. Its look is further complemented by Bi-xenon headlights, a set of LED lights, eyebrows and wheel-rims.

The new Mercedes Vito now boasts of a new "face" that fuses the robustness of a commercial vehicle and the styling of Mercedes-Benz’s current passenger cars. For example, the black radiator grille with diamond pattern is divided by two slats and is flanked by new and uniquely designed reflector headlamps. In order to increase the light output, Mercedes has enlarged the reflector.

New Vito is fitted, as standard, with daytime driving lights with their own light source in the headlamp housings. Customers may also avail of the optional Bi-xenon headlamps, LED daytime driving lights and a headlamp washer system.

The available cornering lights -- controllable through the indicator lever – are effective up to speeds of 70 km/h while the optional Add-Light system is effective between 40 km/h and 70 km/h, depending on the steering angle.

On the other hand, the new Vito comes with a revised front bumper with a honeycomb appearance and hard-wearing grained surface. Customers may have the front bumper optionally finished in the same color as the body. Aside from these modifications, the new Vito also boasts of several revisions between its headlamps and the rear end. Meanwhile, the van’s new fully galvanized steel wings feature very accurate dimensions, which help ensure precise gap measurement.

While the van’s newly designed exterior mirrors now deliver a larger field of vision, they feature smaller and more elegant housings. To complement the modifications made to the exterior of the new Vito, Mercedes is offering an array of elegant colors, including modern new paint finishes.
