Basically, a new version of the old Viano.
Which has been used in Europe as a cargo van as well as V.I.P/hotel/airport shuttle.
The new one (Now called V-Class) seems to be pushing the luxury card even more.
It looks just OK. Without the Mercedes grille, it could be anything. From a few years ago.
But the interior looks really good. A lot like the new C-Class.
Not sure yet is Mercedes will sell this in the US or not.
What do you think/ Would they be a market for a luxury “not-so-mini-Van” over here?

Man, that's tough one. For one, that interior is amazing; refined, sculpted, sumptuous. But I agree that the exterior is pretty pedestrian.
I'd *like* for it to be in the US market. But I'd wager MBUSA would deem it too much a gamble.
they tried to create a market with the R-Class. it failed… hmmm?
just wondering if the cargo version of this car will still have this awesome dashboard…
If MB is gunning to corner a niche market with this, then more power to them. I just don't see this generating worthwhile sales for them here.
Amazing how much it looks like the current Chrysler/Dodge minivans, which were designed under M-B's ownership. Boring as all get-out.
