Mercedes V-Class luxury MPV price starts from at Rs 68.40 lakh (ex-showroom) in India, will be sold as CBU
Mercedes-Benz has launched the V-Class luxury MPV in India at Rs 68.40 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The V-Class marks Mercedes’ reentry in the segment. While the sales performance of this car is still under question, it will certainly put the brand at a new level. It will be sold as CBU and there will be two different seating layouts.
Pricing of the Mercedes car goes up to Rs 81.90 lakh for the Exclusive Line variant, which is the top-of-the-line model. This segment is not a new one for the German luxury carmaker or in markets like Europe and America. But, launching it in India is certainly a bold step from the automaker. The India-spec Mercedes V-Class will be imported from Spain.

Speaking about the technical bits of the luxury MPV, the V-Class gets an OM654 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. Like all of the brand’s recent launches, Mercedes V-Class too complies with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms. The engine is capable of pumping out 158 bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of peak torque. A 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox is there doing transmission duty.
The V-Class MPV comes with boxy proportions and it draws some design cues from siblings like E-Class or S-Class. The headlamps appear similar to the S-Class sedan thanks to the LED lamps and curvy LED daytime running lights. The stylish alloy wheels, crisp roof rails, larger windshield and small vertically positioned LED taillights add zing to the car.
As expected, the Mercedes V-Class cabin appears premium and well equipped. It gets a clean dashboard with large AC vents. There is a COMAND infotainment system. Large twin-pod instrument cluster with digital MID at the centre is there. It boasts a wide range of safety techs as standard. These include six airbags, attention assist, crosswind assist, headlight assist, TPMS, active parking assist, 360-degree cameras.
