The airy, spacious feel of an MPV coupled with the exclusive appointments of a luxury saloon and the technical and visual attributes of a sports car - the new Viano X-CLUSIVE brings together this extraordinary combination.

Extraordinary combination

Combining dynamism, sporty flair and pampering is maybe not the most unusual, but Mercedes has managed to achieve it on their Viano van. The spacious van is coupled with Mercedes' top-of-the-line comfort and has received redesigned bumpers, side skirts and radiator grille. Additionally you will find a chrome-plated tailpipe and 18 inch light alloy wheels with 245/45 tires.

But not all is cosmetic, the Viano X-Clusive is only available with a V6, a first on the Viano model line. All the V6 engines actually amount to two engines, a 3.0 liter 204 hp CDI diesel engine and a 3,5 liter 258 hp petrol engine, known as the M272, which should propel the Viano to 100 km/h from stand still in 9,5 second.

The indivudual leather or Alcantara seats can be positioned in pretty much any way you can imagine (face-to-face or in rows) and can be replaced with a bench version if there is interest. A smooth and comfortable ride is garanteed by Mercedes with their Thermotronic climate control and self-levelling air suspension at the rear axle. The interior is finished with a burr-walnut design, illuminated door sills while the exterior is finished in a choice of two colors, namely brilliant silver or obsidian black.
