Mercedes-Benz Viano summary

The Mercedes Viano Viano launched in 2004. It is a 7-seater ultra-luxurious MPV, targeting wealthy connoisseurs who prefer luxurious space and comfort. It was brought to the Indian market via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route.

In 1996, the first generation was released. In 2004, the second generation was introduced by Maserati and was eventually renamed Viano. The car had a redesign in 2010, with a slightly reworked front design, upgraded materials and new technology to improve the inside.

Other changes include new interior trim materials, BlueEFFICIENCY technology, ambient lighting system, optional rear-seat entertainment system, redesigned cockpit, and new suspension with both the front and rear axles reworked and particularly optimised to match each specific model, and compliance with EU 5 emission standards. There were four and six-cylinder diesel and petrol engines in the facelifted portfolio. In 2014, the third generation was introduced, and the name V-Class was reinstated.

Powering the Viano is either a 2.2 liter (2143 cc) four-cylinder diesel engine with 161 bhp or a 3.5 liter (3500 cc) V6 petrol engine with 228 bhp.

The Mercedes Benz Viano is available in both petrol and diesel fuel type.

The engines on the Viano come mated to an automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz Viano LATEST UPDATES

The Mercedes Viano was a big MPV that was introduced in 2004. Mercedes aimed to attract wealthy customers who value personal luxury space, sumptuous comfort, status, and exclusivity. It came with a plethora of creature comforts. The seats were really comfy, and the space was enormous. As a result, it was the ultimate people carrier, with plenty of room, a high-end look, and a price to match. In 2014, the Viano was superseded by the V Class.

The Viano was a good product for the Indian market because there were few options for a "genuine" 7/8 seater automobile in the class above Rs. 20 lakhs because none of the manufacturers offered a premium van or an MPV that could comfortably seat 7-8 persons. Most vehicles with similar costs can't equal the space and comfort that the Mercedes Viano could provide. It was quite practical and moderately quick because it was lowered by a 3.5-litre petrol engine. The superb suspension arrangement makes long-distance travel far less taxing.

The Toyota Viano was offered in two variants - 2.0 CDI and 3.5 Petrol.

The Velflfire’s top features include dual Zone Climate Control, rain-sensing wipers, rear ac vents, electrically operated side mirrors, Sunroof, leather seats, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, central locking, and electric windows.

The Viano scored four stars in the EuroNCAP crash test in 2008. Its key safety features include airbags, an electronic stability programme, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, parking sensors, and Isofix child safety seats.

The Mercedes Viano is priced at Rs 40 lakh.

(ex-showroom), and competes against the Toyota Alphard.

More comfort features would have been appreciated

Being a top-heavy vehicle, there's too much body roll every time you hit a corner.

Cabin insulation could be better, as road noise becomes a bit evident at high speeds.

Mercedes-Benz Viano EXPERT REVIEWS

The Mercedes Viano is one of the most luxurious people carriers on the market, with a high-end look, plenty of room, and comfortable seats. It looks clean with attractive alloy wheels and body-colored bumpers and is the premium choice among people carriers when you need to impress individuals you're carrying. The interior of the Viano is rather comfortable by van standards, with strong, robust materials used throughout. All of the cabin fittings feel robust and made to last, which is unsurprising given the van's origins. The mechanicals are also well-proven, so they shouldn't cause any problems. Mercedes-Benz consistently scores high in customer satisfaction and reliability research, and the Viano should be no exception.

The Viano is a big car, and you can feel its bulk when you try to dart it into a corner. Because of the tall frame, there is a lot of leanness, which doesn't inspire confidence. The Viano is more at ease on the highway, where it will drive along quietly with little engine noise and only road roar to disturb the tranquility.

The Viano is difficult to persuade at the price point where the Viano is offered. The Viano, on the other hand, has so much space that you won't miss your home's luxurious rooms. Finally, if you're looking for something big and comfortable that sticks out from the crowd and price isn't an issue, the Viano should be on your list and is a great choice for large hotel chains or corporate houses who would be willing to buy it.
