Hugely versatile, practical and spacious, the Mercedes-Benz Vito is a stylish medium-sized panel van which combines comfort, safety and driving pleasure with the excellent build quality you'd expect from the brand.
Launched in 1996, and last revamped in 2014, the latest Mercedes-Benz Vito van comes in a choice of two lengths, five power outputs, front or rear-wheel drive and a variety of seating configurations. As a panel van, it can carry a payload of up to 1,344kg or 6.6 cubic metres; if you need to transport passengers, crew vans seat up to six, and Tourers up to nine.
Wide back doors, a sliding side door and a low sill make loading easy, and load-securing rings in panel and crew vans keep your cargo secure. The Vito is also less than 2m high, which is useful if you need to park in a multi-storey or use a car wash.
The cabin feels solid, is equipped with good quality fabrics, and provides good visibility. An infotainment system with a radio, Bluetooth, and iPod and USB connectivity is standard, and can be operated using buttons on the steering wheel. The driver's seat is adjustable eight ways, and the steering wheel adjusts for reach and rake too, so it's easy to find a comfortable driving position.
From 2014 onwards, front-wheel-drive Vitos come with a 1.6-litre diesel engine with 87bhp or 112bhp, while rear-wheel-drive versions have a 2.1-litre diesel engine with 134bhp, 161bhp or 187bhp. Both offer top-quality performance, handling and refinement, with capable steering and body control, and little noise. Fuel economy is up to 47.1mpg, and recommended service intervals are every two years or 24,000 miles.
Mercedes-Benz vans have won numerous safety awards, and standard safety features include attention assist, which alerts you if you're getting drowsy, tyre pressure monitoring, crosswind assist, which stabilises the van in crosswinds, and hill start assist for help when pulling away on inclines. The brand also has a strong reputation for reliability, and in Fleet News' FN50 van reliability survey in 2018, the Vito came third.
