The new V-Class has several technical developments on board. All components are optimally coordinated with each other and offer ride comfort, agility and efficiency at a high level. You set your pace, and the engine does the rest. With the 7-speed automatic 7G-TRONIC PLUS, the high-torque 4-cylinder petrol engine impresses with its superior handling characteristics, low consumption and supreme ride comfort. The AGILITY CONTROL suspension with selective damping system strikes the perfect balance between driving comfort and agility.

Innovative technology for comfort, agility and efficiency.

The V-Class uses the best of what Mercedes has to offer. The M274 is a well proven and tested turbocharged petrol engine known from other models. With a delivery of 211 Hp and 350 Nm it delivers great performance with optimum efficiency.

Sports suspension.

The sports suspension is designed to deliver a high level of driving dynamics and will thrill with its tight suspension tuning, palpable agility and dynamic cornering capability. Its racy characteristics, which make it highly suitable for long-haul trips, differ noticeably from those of the standard comfort suspension due to the deployment of frequency-selective damping. As they have been lowered by 15 mm, vehicles with sports suspension have a lower centre of gravity and optimised roadholding.


Power is transmitted by the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with 7 gears providing an optimum drivetrain for great performance. Comfortable cruising or pure driving dynamics – the DYNAMIC SELECT Switch facilitates both. The various modes allow the driver to adjust the character of the vehicle as desired: Whether the emphasis is on comfort, sporty performance or efficiency, with the tap of a finger the parameters of the 7G-TRONIC PLUS and the engine can be adjusted to achieve the desired driving experience.


The AGILITY CONTROL suspension with selective damping system adapts the damping characteristics to the road conditions and driving situation. It provides a good balance between driving comfort and agility by varying the rolling, damping and stabilising characteristics to suit the road surface and driving conditions. By continually scanning the surface, the road roar and tyre vibration characteristics are improved where there are small bumps; and where there are bigger bumps, the effectiveness of the vehicle's damping and stabilising functions.
