The world market is filled with cars of different classes, where, of course, crossovers and SUVs are still more popular. Nevertheless, there is demand for other segments - sedans, hatchbacks and minivans. The latter, by the way, are suitable not only as a commercial car, but can also act as a family car. In Russia, there is also a certain demand for models of this class, where the Mercedes V-Class 2022 is of particular interest. The minivan is available in several trim levels, where the base one is estimated at 3.526 million rubles. The car is offered in different power plants, as well as with a fairly rich equipment. As for the competitors in the market, there are Multivan from Volkswagen, Toyota Alphard and two Korean representatives - Kia Carnival, Hyundai H1.
Mercedes V-Class 2022 in the Russian market is in good demand due to a decent level of equipment and safety. The technical characteristics of the model are provided by several power plants, which largely determine the final price. Unfortunately, the car has not received a new body this year, but its design is still quite relevant. By the way, you can get acquainted with the appearance and interior of the minivan from the photos presented in this article, as well as with the complete list of trim levels.
In this case, motorists are offered a choice in terms of power plants. Both a gasoline engine and a diesel engine can be installed under the hood of the car. In the first version, a 2.0-liter engine is available, complemented by a turbocharger. The performance of the unit corresponds to 211 horsepower with a torque of 350 N * m. The diesel engine is turbocharged. The working volume of the installation corresponds to 2.1 liters, and the power and torque have different indicators. So, the unit is capable of delivering 136, 163 and 190 horsepower, where the thrust will be characterized by 330, 380 and 440 N * m, respectively. A six-speed manual transmission and a seven-speed automatic transmission are available as transmissions. The minivan is offered with both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
The Mercedes V-Class boasts a fairly spacious interior due to its overall size. So, the length is 5,140 mm, the width is 1,928 mm, the height is 1,880 mm, and the center-to-center space does not exceed 3,200 mm. The size of the ground clearance depends on the selected modification and corresponds to the values of 140 and 160 mm. With regard to the weight of the car, the choice of equipment also means a lot, where figures of 2,030-2,195 kilograms are declared. As for the luggage compartment, 620 liters are provided here for the transport of goods and other things. Of course, the manufacturer proposes to significantly increase this volume to 4,200 liters due to the folded rear seats.

The German brand is quite serious about equipping its own models, where special attention is paid to the safety of both the vehicle itself and all road users. As for the Mercedes V-Class, everything here is also presented at a fairly high level. The minivan is equipped with a variety of sensors, assistants and intelligent systems that monitor the condition of the road surface, as well as the driver himself for fatigue. Provided to motorists and a package of airbags, belts, etc.
Handling and off-road performance
No less important is such a parameter when choosing a vehicle for purchase, as dynamics. Mercedes V-Class provides good speed indicators - 183-206 km / h, but this applies more to paved roads. There is no need to talk about such off-road dynamics, since the minivan is more designed for city use. The presence of all-wheel drive in this case also does not greatly affect the vehicle's cross-country ability. Still, 160 mm ground clearance is clearly not enough to conquer country roads with large obstacles, although a light off-road model is available.
Advantages and disadvantages
If we talk about the advantages, then in the case of the Mercedes V-Class there will clearly be more than disadvantages. The first thing worth noting here is the build quality, which is at a fairly high level. The second is excellent manageability, where an extended package of assistants and other systems is provided. The minivan has a fairly spacious and comfortable cabin, which has everything you need to travel even over long distances. In addition, the vehicle offers a choice of engines, drive systems and equipment options. As for the disadvantages, this includes a rather high price tag and the corresponding cost of maintenance. It's still difficult to call a minivan a budget one.
Appearance is the first thing that everyone who is in the stage of choosing a car for purchase encounters. Mercedes V-Class has a rather stylish and practical design, which is typical for all models of the company. In shape, it is a standard minivan, but otherwise individual outlines are visible. The front bumper has a fairly large radiator grille and large headlights with an original design. By the way, the latter give the appearance a certain originality and recognition. But the back is in many ways similar to other models of a similar type - the same shape and the same simplicity.
Inside the minivan - the style and luxury inherent in the brand. High-quality materials have been used for decoration, which provides comfort and convenience. It is worth noting that the interior also has an air of technology, although in many respects it is decorated similarly to other modern models. It offers a multifunctional steering wheel and a center console with a convenient location of the main equipment - a digital dashboard, a multimedia system, climate control, and so on. The seats are ergonomically designed and have a number of useful options for position and height selection.
In the Russian market, the Mercedes V-Class in the current version appeared in 2019, but still remains competitive. True, for some time the minivan still left our country, but then returned.
If we talk about the competitors of the minivan, then here we can highlight:
- Toyota Alphard;
- Kia Carnival;
- Hyundai H1;
- Volkswagen Multivan.
