Mercedes-Benz to launch updated V-Class and EQV people carriers in 2024
The new version boasts larger grilles, added safety features and three trim levels
Mercedes-Benz is set to launch updated versions of its V-Class and EQV people carriers in 2024, incorporating a refreshed look and more standard equipment.
The move is part of the automaker's strategy to elevate its entire model range, and will compete with rivals including the Volkswagen Multivan, ID. Buzz and the recently-revealed Lexus LM1.
Visually, the updated V-Class and EQV line-ups feature a larger grille at the front, while the one-box MPV body shape remains unchanged.
In addition to the updated exterior design are new, twin 12.3-inch displays for the cabin, which present Mercedes’ latest MBUX infotainment software.
Safety features in both models have also received notable improvements, with standard kit now including rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, active lane-keeping and auto main beam headlights.
Other standard equipment across both vans include rear air-conditioning and smartphone integration.
Up to three different trim levels - Style, Avantgarde and Exclusive add further features, such as climate control, wireless phone charging, sat-nav with live traffic info, and Multibeam LED headlights in Avantgarde guise.
Meanwhile, tinted windows, electrically-operated sliding side doors and sports suspension can be found on the range-topping Exclusive trim.
Both the refreshed V-Class and EQV will arrive in UK showrooms in 2024.
