Mercedes-Benz has revealed its new Vito mid-sized van.
Several variants are available. The standard van, with up to 1,369 kg of cargo capacity, has the highest payload in its class. The Vito Crew featuring a crewcab combines the advantages of a panel van with those of a crewbus.
There are two versions of the Vito tourer passenger carrying version: the versatile Vito Tourer PRO and the premium Vito Tourer SELECT.
The van is available in both rear and front wheel drive. Mercedes says the new front-wheel drive system in the range is very light, and ideal for carrying light loads. It recommends rear wheel drive for heavier loads and towing.
The front wheel drive version has a transverse-mounted, compact four-cylinder engine with a displacement of 1.6 litres and which is available in two power ratings: the Vito 109 CDI with 88 hp and the Vito 111 CDI with 114 hp.
The rear-wheel drive version offers a four-cylinder engine with a 2.15-litre displacement. It is available at three power output levels - Vito 114 CDI, 136 hp; Vito 116 CDI, 163 hp, and Vito 119 BlueTEC, 190 hp. The 119 BlueTEC engine is Euro6 compliant.
Full UK pricing and specification are still to be confirmed.
