  [car03 Test drive]  Since Mercedes-Benz V-class launch, it is compared with the higher level models from the brand a sense of quality interior design to attract a lot of need to purchase a business MPV consumers, but its price is still the market for some high , after all, the demand for car owners is far from business, pick high, Vito is to this part of the market and students. Viano has become a replacement V level, now the turn of the Vito. This time I came to Yunnan Dali, it is to come.

  For the new Vito shape, I think most friends can know what it looks like, yes, is a simplified version of the V stage, from the appearance of the configuration can be seen, it will level V occupy high and low market positioning.

  Front did a lot of simple, however, V stage brings its own aura can still feel a lot. If you change a headlight and grille, I believe that kind of domineering child will instantly return to eighty percent or more.

  Body size, the new Vito long axis of the V-grade version of the platform, the 300,000 level which should be regarded as a large-size. The preferred models in this price range, GL8 still the business market, but now the new Vito came from brand to body size than GL8 advantage. It is divided into Business Edition and Elite Edition, Business Edition is high with the biggest difference is the use of bilateral appearance of sliding doors, sliding door on the right side only Elite Edition.

  The new Vito is equipped with 17-inch wheels shape is relatively simple, compared to the size of the rim of the body, the size is also very coordinated. The spare tire is located in the lower part of the body, using a non-full-size spare tire, the benefits of this design is that it allows the trunk opening closer off the ground for easy loading and unloading of goods.

  Not so much the front compared to the rear of change is relatively simple to configure performance lights, all lights are halogen lamps, which significantly reduce the cost of the vehicle in order to control the price. In the future market, if we can provide to the lights on the best option.

  In the body color, the new Vito provided a total of three choices, black, white and silver, three colors are also biased in favor of some of the characteristics of calm, which is in line to face its future business demand.

2 interior design is simple and practical route to go

    Get in the car, this console can give me a completely different feeling, V-class luxury atmosphere that could not see, the result is a more realistic feel.

  All console using a hard material, the assembly process is also good, than the previous generation Vito is improved a lot. Due to the different positioning, the new Vito interior style change is very obvious, as a pick-up in the business-oriented models, such interior style, I think it is acceptable.

  Vito offers all black and shades with two color schemes, with shades of color difference lies only in the color of the seat, the center console are all black.

  The steering wheel is still the typical Mercedes style, and feel of the show is still a V-class feel. Meter style is simple, clear display and easy to read. A total of Vito Elite Edition and Business Edition two configurations, they are equipped with cruise control and speed limits, performance in this area is quite generous.

  Equipped with multimedia system becomes a lot simpler, different configurations of the same model are required option, according to official information display, optional multimedia system is Audio15 (5.8-inch display, support for USB, AUX and SD card) with my current Test drive multimedia system a little difference between models. However, the current car filled with this Android-based car machine believe in the future when consumers buy, 4S stores will certainly be the appropriate optional accessories.

One thing worthy of praise, that is Vito the third row of negative pressure from escalating into electric window control, this upscale than the V-class feel even a little.

The seat layout, Vito provides 7, 8 and 9 are three options, the models for the test drive version 7. Here we look at how its performance in terms of space.

  Business Edition and because the car seat is equipped with a slide, so the two rows of seats can be moved back and forth with a very large range, the above shows us the largest performance space, to ensure that the second-row passenger legroom nearly fist third row still has a large space, so from the point of view of space travel, Vito at the same level which has a considerable advantage.

  As mentioned earlier, Vito had seven, eight and nine three kinds of seating layout, where the elite version of the seven seat layout and Business Edition version is different, and it is the seat can not be moved. In addition, the Business Edition, the second row of seats can also be installed backwards, get behind the formation of a temporary conference room. Of course, if you have a need for the trunk, the second and third row seats removed all no problem.

3 car stocked, flexible trunk

    Storage space, Vito first row of available storage grid is very large, from above to below the instrument panel, not only the number of grid more storage, and space for each storage cell are large, each of which promoted a storage box practicality.

  The new Vito's front storage compartment very much, and most storage space lattice is also very spacious and neat, which we use every day to bring a lot of convenience, place a large-sized wallet, cell phone, water bottles and other items that can easily deal with.

  After the door is also designed with storage box, the other in the second row of seats on both sides of the post also have compartments designed around 12V power connector is provided, respectively, to allow back seat passengers to use some electronic equipment.

    Front and rear positions of trunk space and performance seat has a great relationship, the new Vito able to provide a more spacious seating space at the same time, too, can have a very large trunk volume.

  We measured the maximum size of the trunk Vito, the second and third row seats adjust to a connected state before and after, when the space is quite spacious. If you need more space, you can be the second and third row seats removed. For business, pick-up, the passenger space and trunk space are very important, Vito will have a very good performance in this regard.

4 Power outstanding performance, more rigid suspension

    Seen its static performance, the talk about the dynamic.

  Before we read essay Class V test article to a friend Vito must have some idea, yes, but also that it uses power station M274 is 2.0T turbocharged engine, maximum power of 211 horsepower (155 kW), the maximum torque of 350 Nm. Its mix is a 7-speed manual gearbox, manual mode is achieved by shift paddles.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2016 2.0T

  Because before we opened a Mercedes V-class, so the dynamic performance of the Vito is considered somewhat understand, this 2.0T engine installed in its body, feeling the daily use is not difficult, than the previous 2.5L V6 engine too strong a.

  Moderate throttle setting, a pedal lightly to go out of the situation does not appear, the whole trip is very linear, for transportation customers, this smooth performance is very important. Everyday use, even though I would tender, its shift speed is not less than 2000rpm, this is obviously to take care of the output power to avoid power shift occurs after convergence is not on the case.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2016 2.0T

  For the ride's performance, this 7-speed manual gearbox is absolutely contributed to ride shift speed and gear in the gearbox between AT outstanding level of performance considered. However, this level of excellence range, occasionally some small flaws, such as front, I release the throttle, and when the situation continued to lift the throttle, when combined with the gearbox is very prone to feeling frustrated.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2016 2.0T

  Vito and V-class, as are provided a driving mode selection, however, it is only comfortable, economical, and 3 modes of manual transmission (V-class than its more a sport mode). In economic mode and comfortable mode changes throttle response is unlikely, the economic model will show slightly slow some more different mainly in that the gearbox control in economy mode, the transmission will downshift a little feedback It was lazy, but for everyday use I prefer the comfort mode, the face of overtaking, etc., comfort mode performance better.

  Vito used Maxxis tires during driving, the tire noise was quite obvious. Engine noise control is very good, almost hear the sound of the engine is not under 3000rpm, in addition to outside power upgrade, this is also compared to the previous generation Vito personally feel the most obvious changes.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2016 2.0T

  Vito chassis performance is very solid, it will not run high-speed floating feeling, but also very neat suspension performance through the deceleration zone. However, the problem and before V-class, as is the finely divided in the face of bumps, the suspension filtered obvious, sitting in the back of the passenger can feel, this is in fact in terms of comfort of influence is quite obvious .

● Summary:

    The following summarize the test drive, this part I think we should say two aspects, one is its advantage, on the other hand is the selection Which?

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2016 2.0T

Vito's strengths lie?

    Vito with entry models priced at less than 300,000 this information will certainly attract a lot of business needs consumers have, through this world to test drive experience, and I agree with it in this market will be terrific. The reason why there is such recognition, provided or from the three aspects, the first is the brand, the business market demand for the brand is very high, so this is its greatest advantage; second is the space shuttle business requirements and take a spacious trunk can have large enough to let go of bulky luggage, Vito's performance is sufficient to meet the needs of both, in fact, this is why GL8 can be more important for reasons other than business MPV; the last is the price, 300,000 can buy a business What MPV have? It came, I'm afraid we can only think GL8, and now compared to the previous generation reduced the price of the new Vito, also has a price advantage, so in the future in the commercial vehicles market, the new Vito is definitely a non ignore choice.

Which cost-effective?

    A total of Vito Elite Edition and Business Edition in two configurations, in terms of price, we have seven models, for example, expensive Business edition than 40,000 elite version, which can be exchanged for part of the front curtain airbags, double-sided sliding doors ( elite is just on the right), the former radar, automatic parking, Nappa leather steering wheel, seat rails, etc., from the configuration point of view it seems not much difference, but these configurations are mostly able to bring more everyday use convenience. However, in these configurations, I have some suggestions, based on Vito's location, its drivers mostly are professional drivers, so the automatic parking function how much feeling there is some wasted; and the whole car multimedia system is needed optional, with the original car is not even an option, and no navigation, reverse image of these features, plus reverse image display if the automatic parking can replace the standard, I think it will save a lot of trouble late modification . In addition, the left and right sides of the sliding door also allows the rear passengers to get off more on the aspect, and this is impossible to have post-converted, so the configuration based on the practicality of these terms, I would feel more cost-effective Business Edition.

    On the downside, in my opinion the biggest problem is the suspension damper comprising finely bumpy road for filtering effect is not obvious, for most European cars, the suspension will clear some of the more rigid, and this is also in the Vito no exceptions, most people still prefer to complete some of the insurance will be finely filtered, in this regard also hope that the new Vito can make some changes as the Romans do.
