There are two different body styles: a long wheelbase and an extra-long wheelbase. The former is available with seven seats only, while the latter is upgradable to eight seats if you need even more room for passengers.
The 2.1-litre diesel engine in the V-Class produces 187bhp and it's just as fast as the old 3.0-litre unit in the Viano. That means economy is up without sacrificing performance. The V-Class is actually pretty good in this department thanks to a brisk 0-62mph sprint time of just 9.1 seconds and 480Nm of torque available for overtaking. Work the engine hard, however, and it feels quite gruff, while the 7G-tronic automatic gearbox is showing its age.
