Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo was launched in the Indian market at Auto Expo 2020. The price list of the luxury MPV begins at Rs. 1.38 Lakh (ex-showroom).
Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo is now available in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs. 1.38 crore (ex-showroom,pan-India). The luxury MPV was launched during the recently concluded Auto Expo 2020.
The Mercedes Benz V-Class Marco Polo will sit above regular V-Class in the German manufacturer’s line-up. According to the company, the V-Class Marco Polo is the best outdoor luxury car available. In fact, the vehicle can be used as a home-outside-of-home. Luxury equipment on offer includes a sofa-bed, fully-equipped kitchenette, a wardrobe, a fold-out table, a fully-functioning refrigerator, and even running water supply!
For the elite who love camping, Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo might seem like the best option. The car can brave the wilderness without compromising in the comfort department. Its house-on-wheel design can accommodate up to four people, making it the absolute perfect getaway vehicle for the extremely wealthy.
Dimension-wise, the V-Class Marco Polo will be the same as the long-wheelbase version of the V-Class Elite. Measuring 5,140mm in length, 1,928mm in width, and 1,901mm in height, it certainly is quite a large car. The wheelbase is also quite massive, at 3,200 mm, liberating plenty of space inside the MPV for all the luxury mentioned earlier.
As for the specifications, the car is powered by a relatively humble 2.0-litre inline-4 turbo-diesel engine that generates 163 PS and 380 Nm of peak power and maximum torque respectively. The power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The MPV is available in two trims –Marco Polo and Marco Polo Horizon. The former will be the entry-level model, priced at Rs. 1.38 crore (ex-showroom), while the latter is the top-spec trim, available at Rs. 1.46 crore (ex-showroom). There is no rival to the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo; it will be on sale in the market without any real competition.
However, there are indeed a slew of new MPVs that aim to open doors to a premium section of the Indian luxury car market. One of these is the recently launched Kia Carnival, which goes on to rival the hot-selling Toyota Innova Crysta. Another model that is headed our way is the Toyota Vellfire, which will cost roughly Rs 40 lakh and offer a more premium experience than its relatively cheaper sibling. All in all, the MPV market of the country seems to be finally coming of age.
