Power and Performance

The latest Mercedes-Benz Vito packs a punch in the performance department, offering a range of engines to suit your needs, be it hauling cargo or conquering country roads.

For those prioritising efficiency and economy, the front-wheel-drive Vito comes with a new 1.5-litre turbodiesel in two flavours: 88hp for lighter loads and 114hp for a bit more oomph. It's frugal, too, sipping fuel as if it's going out of style. Seeking a balance between grunt and efficiency? The rear-wheel-drive 2.1-litre diesel comes in three configurations: 136hp, 163hp, and the beefy 190hp. Each delivers ample torque for effortless haulage and decent on-road performance. Fancy a bit of a sporty van? The top-of-the-line 119 CDI boasts a refined 2.0-litre diesel pumping out 190hp and a whopping 440Nm of torque. Paired with a slick nine-speed automatic, it offers brisk acceleration and surefooted handling, making it a joy to drive even on twisty roads.

Steering is typically precise, and the suspension is engineered to offer a comfortable ride, even when the vehicle is loaded. This balance ensures that the Vito is as suitable for long-distance journeys as it is for short urban trips.

The latest Mercedes-Benz Vito is a testament to the brand's ability to combine luxury with practicality. It's an ideal choice for businesses seeking a dependable, comfortable, and efficient van that doesn't compromise on style or performance.
