German luxury carmaker, Mercedes-Benz is all set to launch the V-Class in the Indian car market on January 24, 2019. With this model, the Stuttgart based carmaker will make a comeback into the MPV segment. This MPV will be imported from Spain and will be launched as a completely built unit in India. The company has no immediate plans of local assembling of this MPV. Local assembly would help to curb high pricing and make it a good option in the luxury UV category dominated by SUVs.

In the international markets, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is available in 3 dimensions depending upon the wheelbase - 4985mm, 5140mm and a long-wheelbase version measuring 5,370mm. The MPV is being offered in 2 different seating configurations - an eight-seater and 7-seater. While the former gets 3 executive seats for second and third row, the 7-seater model gets two executive seats for the second and 3 executive seats for the third row. The second row seats can be rotated towards the doors which increase the comfort level and offers better ingress and egress. What's interesting is that the seats can be rotated to 180 degree, which allows passengers to fit facing each other. This ensures easy interactions and meetings between passengers on the go.

The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is equipped with several high-end comfort and convenience and safety features. It comes with features like 360-degree surround-view camera, lane keep assist, blind spot detection and others. These features are likely to come in the India-bound V-Class also, as it will be an imported model. For global markets, the MPV is available in multiple engine options. In India, the V-Class is expected to get a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that also powers the E-Class sedan. This engine is capable of producing 191bhp of power and 400Nm of torque.
