What is new?

The Vito has made a significant leap forward in terms of connectivity, allowing commercial customers to benefit from state-of-the-art digital networking and services that further increase comfort and safety on the road. Like before, there will be three body shapes in terms of the interior layout.


The new front design is characterised by a powerfully drawn bumper and a new radiator grille. On the exterior, the new Vito immediately stands out with its contemporary new look. Five new exterior paint colours are available for the Vito, including alpine grey and vintage blue. The portfolio of paint colours includes a total of 15 colours.


The new Vito displays a clearly sharpened premium character with a striking new design and updated convenience features. It features new and expanded driver assistance functions to drastically increase comfort and operability.

For the first time, the new Vito includes the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system as standard in all variants, bringing state-of-the-art digital networking to the medium-sized commercial van segment. Thanks to this update, the new Vito has a 10.25-inch central display that can be operated intuitively by touch.

The instrument cluster has a colour display that clearly shows all relevant information. It can be conveniently operated using the touch control panels on the new steering wheel. Now, commercial customers in the midsize Van segment can also benefit from modern digital connectivity, including a wide range of Digital Extras that further enhance comfort and relaxed driving.


With a gross vehicle weight of just 2.8 to 3.2 tonnes, the Vito remains the nifty all-rounder among midsize vans. The new Vito will continue to be available in three variants as a Panel Van with a load volume 6.6 m³, the Mixto with five seats (Crewcab) and the Tourer with up to eight seats, as well as two equipment lines.

Mercedes-Benz Vans has significantly simplified equipment selection by enhancing standard features and fine-tuning package options to suit specific customer needs. This has drastically reduced the hassle of choosing individual options, creating a streamlined shopping experience for commercial customers.


The 114 CDI engine delivers 100 kW and 330 Nm, and the 116 CDI is good for 120 kW and 380 Nm.


114 CDI Panel Van Base (R874 000), 114 CDI Panel Van PRO (R897 000), 114 CDI Mixto Base (R966 000), 116 CDI Mixto PRO (R1 023 500), 114 CDI Tourer Base (R1 112 700), 114 CDI Tourer PRO (R1 135 700) and the 116 CDI Tourer PRO (R1 158 700).
