Mercedes-Benz will soon introduce a more powerful V-Class derivative in South Africa! The V300d is coming, see specs and pricing details here.
If you need to move people in style and luxury, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is your point of call. Now, however, the Stuttgart-based firm is looking to up the ante and introduce a more powerful V300d locally.
Up until now, the local V-Class range included the V200d, V220d and the V250d. The forthcoming V300d will now top the range and will be offered in 3 trim grades including Avantgarde, Avantgarde AMG Line and Exclusive.
Unlike its other V-Class siblings (which are powered by an ageing 2.1-litre turbodiesel engine), the V300d is fitted with Merc’s OM 654 2.0-litre turbodiesel tuned to deliver 176 kW and 500 Nm and is equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. This engine was previously not earmarked for South Africa and we are really excited that it will now be offered locally as it’s far more refined than the existing 2.1-litre engine. We do have experience with this engine as it was introduced with the current generation E-Class back in 2016.
The V-Class can seat up to 8 people and 2 individual seats and a 3-seater bench is standard but customers can arrange or add seating as required depending on your preference.
Key standard features for the V300 include 19-inch alloy wheels, front and rear climate control air conditioning, integrated navigation, front and rear park distance control, a rearview camera, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel and electronically operated side mirrors and windows.
In Exclusive trim, additional features such as a sliding panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera will be fitted as standard.
The V300d will be launched in South Africa at the end of August 2020, see pricing below…
