The V Class will be revealed on January 30th, 2014.

As our readers are aware, the V Class will replace the popular Viano van. However, Mercedes have developed the new V Class in such a way that it also fills the void left behind by the R Class luxury MPV.

As a result, the V Class would appeal to both, fleet/shuttle operators and private buyers looking to transport their large families. To ensure better service to the latter group of customers, it is reported that sales of the V Class will take place at Daimler’s passenger car dealerships as well as commercial vehicle outlets.

Powering the V Class would be a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine, available in power tunes of 136 hp, 170 hp and 190 hp. Transmission options would include Mercedes’s 7-speed 7G-Tronic gearbox, and the newer 9-speed 9G-Tronic gearbox, both of which are dual-clutch units.
