The Mercedes-Benz Vito 116 CDI BlueEfficiency variant with truck registration has a certified fuel consumption of 5.7 l of diesel per 100 km — a value that is unmatched in this vehicle category. The new Vito is also the first van in the mid-size segment to offer three different drive system variants and incorporates a broad range of innovative safety and assistance systems.
The new Vito is the first vehicle in its segment to offer a choice of rear-wheel, all-wheel, and — in a new development — front wheel drive systems. The differences between them are clear: The new front-wheel drive Vito is a very light vehicle. Finally, the new Vito with front-wheel drive is being marketed at a very attractive price. The proven rear-wheel drive system is the perfect solution for jobs involving heavy loads or trailers, and situations where very dynamic handling is required. The all-wheel drive system is the ideal choice when a high degree of traction is required, especially in tough driving conditions and on unpaved roads.
The variety of diesel engines available in the new Vito is also unique in the model’s segment. The front-wheel drive variants are equipped with a compact, transverse-mounted four-cylinder engine with 1.6 l displacement. This engine is available in two performance classes: 65 kW (88 hp) and 84 kW (114 hp).
Vito models with rear or all-wheel drive systems are equipped with a four-cylinder engine with 2.15 l displacement. This engine is available in three output ratings: 100 kW (136 hp), 120 kW (163 hp), and 140 kW (190 hp). The Vito 119 BlueTEC is particularly important because it is the first van in its segment to use a Euro 6 engine.
The developers of the new Vito also made the model extremely fuel efficient. Average NEDC diesel consumption has been reduced by around 20 percent compared to the predecessor model. The Vito with BlueEfficiency package is especially fuel efficient. The BlueEfficiency package can be ordered with the new rear-wheel drive Vito. It is also standard in all Vito Tourer models that have an automatic transmission, are registered as passenger cars, or are variants equipped with the model series’ most powerful engine. The Vito 116 CDI with BlueEfficiency package and truck registration has a certified fuel consumption of 5.7 l/100 km — a value that is unmatched in this vehicle category. All the different new Vito engine variants also benefit from a long maintenance interval of up to 40,000 km or two years.
The new Vito is scheduled to be launched in Germany in October 2014. The model will subsequently be introduced in other European countries. Prices for the Vito 109 CDI panel van will start at €17,990 in Germany (excluding value-added tax).
