New V Class of Mercedes Benz
2015 Mercedes-Benz V for Australia
Speaking with TMR today, Mercedes-Benz Australia’s David McCarthy confirmed that local buyers can expect to see the V-Class here in 2015.
Although too early to discuss specifications and pricing, Mr McCarthy said that both the people-mover and commercial models will make it to Australia.
Mr McCarthy added that a new version of the Valente, a high-spec grade of the Viano offered exclusively to Australia as a replacement for the retired R-Class, will also be a priority.
“The Vito and Viano, and especially the Valente, have been very successful models for us, and we expect that trend to continue with the V-Class,” Mr McCarthy said.
As for the Vito-replacing van, Mr McCarthy said that while the small Renault-based Citan will not make it to Australia (a suitable specification could not be supplied), buyers will likely find an appropriate alternative in the short-wheelbase V-Class.
