-Gets newly designed bumper with cooling air intake and diamond structure radiator grille
-Also available in the new V-Class will be the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class was just launched in India and you can read about the details here. Internationally though, the V-Class had been around for a while and has just received an update. Changes on the outside includes a newly designed bumper with cooling air intake and diamond structure radiator grille. There are also new alloy wheel options along with new colours.
The V-Class will also be available with a new engine option, the V 300d that makes 240bhp and a very impressive 500Nm of torque. The new engine also gets the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission for better efficiency and optimal use of all that power. On the safety front, it now gets Active Brake Assist and Highbeam Assist Plus which we also saw in the new S-Class.
For the near future Mercedes is also planning an all-electric version of the V-Class and will debut the concept EQV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.While the V-Class was just launched in India in the V 200d spec, expect the facelifted car to be launched in India later on as well.
