This year, the Mercedes-Benz Vito turns 25 and to celebrate, Mercedes-Benz South Africa is offering even more robust value propositions in its commercial van thus continuing its legacy of being reliable, safe and versatile.

The latest iteration of the Vito is locally available in Panel Van, Tourer and Mixto guise, with a maximum payload of 1369 kilograms. The updated Mercedes-Benz Vito not only sports an even more attractive form, but it is packed with value-adding enhancements on the inside as well. These refinements ensure that the latest version of the Vito will add to the more than 1.8 million units that have been sold globally, since the first-generation Vito was launched in 1996.

As Mercedes-Benz Vans, we are confident that the Vito facelift will be a valued partner to a number of small, medium and large enterprises in our country.

– Nadia Trimmel, Vice-President of Mercedes-Benz Vans South Africa

“The Mercedes-Benz Vito facelift is being introduced to the South African market at a challenging time. But as we know, challenges bring new opportunities and the Vito is a perfect solution for the upsurge in online shopping and logistics that accompany this, in terms of staff transportation, cargo and package deliveries,” said Nadia Trimmel, Vice-President of Mercedes-Benz Vans South Africa.

“As Mercedes-Benz Vans, we are confident that the Vito facelift will play an integral part in this upsurge, by being a valued partner to a number of small, medium and large enterprises in our country, as industries evolve amidst changing consumer preferences,” added Trimmel.

Exciting exterior

A nip and tuck facelift has resulted in an updated radiator grille design – with and without the chrome option. The options of the Vito facelift include Active Brake Assist, painted bumpers and a Driver Assist Package, ensuring that the vehicle attributes are even more attractive than its highly successful predecessor.

Comfortable cabin

The designers have also updated the entire Vito range’s interior. The hard-wearing and elegant “Caluma” fabric replaces the previous “Tunja” fabric. It features a white stripe pattern on the seat cushion and backrest, while the sides and headrest are finished off in a long-lasting black.

The Vito facelift includes new ventilation nozzles (similar to the class-leading V-Class).

To round off the star performer’s interior, a heavy-duty and waterproof floor covering provides improved dampening and an anti-slip surface for entering and exiting the vehicle.

Latest infotainment offering

The facelift also extends the range of infotainment systems. The new Vito uses digital radio reception for all radio options allowing crystal-clear and interference-free radio reception over long distances. The Audio 10 system also has a Bluetooth® interface with hands-free functionality or for streaming music.

The new Audio 30 and Audio 40 infotainment systems meet many customer requirements, with a 7-inch touchscreen with Smartphone Integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. A smartphone can be charged via the USB interface.

Enhanced safety and assistance systems

The Vito Facelift includes a new optional Active Brake Assist which detects the risk of a collision with a vehicle driving ahead.  Initially, it gives a visual and acoustic warning. If the driver responds, the assistance system builds up brake pressure appropriate to the situation.

However, if there is no response, the system actively assists with braking manoeuvres. In urban traffic, Active Brake Assist also reacts to stationary obstacles or crossing pedestrians.
