Mercedes Vito

Also known as the V Class, the Mercedes Vito is a light commercial van, available as a panel van for cargo or with seating for up to seven passengers, and has achieved fame as a London Black Cab.

Is it practical?
The Mercedes Vito underwent a facelift in 2010, resulting in a far more comfortable, stylish and intelligent vehicle that looks more modern than the previous generation. In all its standard forms, the Mercedes Vito is extremely practical, with seating for six or seven passengers. This is nothing to write home about on its own. But what Mercedes have done with the seating deserves attention: the seats recline, move forward in increments of 2.5cm and best of all, they can be turned to face each other. From here, there’s a folding table to make it comfortable to have a sit-down meal or build a house of cards. It’s possible to fold or remove the seats to increase your cargo space; when they’re out, the Mercedes Vito has a capacity of 4,610 litres and a weight limit of 930kg. However, you’re able to tow up to 2,500kg if you have a trailer with brakes or 750kg for a trailer without them.

How does it drive?
The Mercedes Vito has been built for practical handling. Its rear-wheel drive reduces its turning circle to 11.8m, better than most of its rivals. In 2010, the range of engines was toned down in favour of efficiency; all the diesels were made available with BlueEFFICIENCY technology to lower fuel consumption and emissions. An electric version of the Mercedes Vito has also been released.

The verdict 
Any used Mercedes Vito is a spacious and practical vehicle. Mercedes kept pumping improvements in over the years, ensuring your Mercedes Vito looks the part and performs well.
