First Photos of New Mercedes-Benz V-Class Minivan's Interior

Official imagery of the cabin of Mercedes-Benz‘s all-new V-Class that will soon replace the Viano passenger van in its range have surfaced online. Together with an earlier released sketch of the exterior, they provide us our best look yet at the new people carrier that is said to be released in spring of 2014, likely making its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.

The design and feel of the V-Class’ cabin is a big step up from the more utilitarian Viano, with the display model featuring what looks to be a removable touch pad on the upper section of the center console, as well as four individual passenger seats, with two pairs facing each other.

A report from German magazine Autobild said that the new Viano will launch in Europe with a selection of three diesel units rated for 134hp (136PS), 168hp (170PS) and 187hp (190PS), with petrol units to be offered in other markets.

A commercial version of the V-Class that will replace the Vito will also be introduced next year.
