On the market since summer 2003, the Mercedes V-class / Viano MPVs are due for a mid-life overhaul giving them a sharper look and adding a touch of sport to the boxy minivans. Snapped here undergoing hot-weather testing in the south of France, exterior modifications appear to be limited to new front and rear skirts as well as a slightly re-designed grille. We expect the cabin to be upgraded, too, but expect nothing much will change under the bonnet. This would leave customers the choice between a 3.0- and 3.5-litre V6 (190 and 231 bhp) or CDI 2.0, 2.3 and 3.0-litre 4-cylinder units developing 118, 150 or 204 horsepower.
