Mercedes has announced plans to introduce the Marco Polo Activity at the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon.

Based on the Vito, the Marco Polo Activity is being billed as the perfect recreational vehicle for young families.

While it's not as luxurious as the V-Class based Marco Polo, the Marco Polo Activity has a folding table, curtains and two electric window vents. The van also has a rear bench that transforms into a "comfortable bed for three people." Those looking for more privacy can opt to sleep in the pop-up roof section which has a foam mattress with "spring elements" for improved comfort.

Under the hood, five different engines will be available with outputs ranging from 88 PS (65 kW) to 190 PS (140 kW). Buyers can also equip the model with front, rear or all-wheel drive.

The Marco Polo Activity will be priced from €38,960 in Germany which makes it significantly cheaper than the Marco Polo which starts at €54,835.

Note: Both prices include a 19% VAT
