Mercedes is planning to reveal the production-ready V-Class at the Geneva Motor Show and have it on sale in the summer. It is also set to be more saloon-like in the way it drives in a bid to distance Merc’s people mover from previous models’ van relations. To this end, Merc will give the V-Class a dash and interior more in line with the A-Class and next generation C-Class. However, it will also still provide masses of cabin space and seating for up to seven, though there will also be the option of captain’s chairs to seat six in limo-like comfort. Mercedes is yet to confirm engines for the V-Class, but it’s likely it will use the new 2.2-litre turbodiesel set to make its debut in the C-Class to help lower emissions and improve economy.
